I just thought I'd check in with a progress report. It's Sunday and I did a Leslie Sansome 3 mile workout tonight, with weights on one of the miles. Monday was the last time I'd managed to fit in exercise in a very busy week.
I've grown to love that big grapefruit like fruit called pummelo. If I'm hankering after dessert and have some pummelo instead, I find them a satisfying alternative, with interesting texture and tangy flavour. My tongue is totally distracted by the time I'm finished eating a couple of segments and I no longer crave ice cream or anything else sweet.
As the weeks go by, every fraction of a pound lost is a victory for me. It may not be going fast, but as I approach the week 9 check in, I know that I'm looking and feeling better even if the numbers aren't vastly lower.
On Tuesdays, which is a night when we have company each week, and on Sundays, when we often have company, I don't worry to much about what I eat, but I try to stop eating when I'm full. The rest of the week I try to be conscious of avoiding fat and sugar and eat higher fibre foods. I'm also eating enough dairy every day as it is supposed to be helpful for losing weight and is definitely good for our bones.
That's it for today!
