It’s time for another update! I am doing WW Purple if you are new around here. I started cleaning up my diet on April 8 on my own and officially joined WW on May 1st. I am officially down 35 pounds as of last Friday! These last 4 pounds have come off slowly. I was at 31 as of our last update.
Here is me mid-May:
Here is me last week. I was trying to wear an outfit that I wore when I began and this is what I found…
So, I don’t see that big of a difference in these photos. I had already lost about 10 pounds in the above and then below that would be about 25 more.
Here is the soup that Erica made last week! I am excited to check out more Food Babe recipes. Here are screen shots for you to see if you want to click. It was delicious and zero points.
I get 16 points a day and I am encouraged to eat lots of zero point foods. I love the app!
Recently I have had a veggie burger wrap with some hash browns
and zoodles with mushrooms, artichokes, tomatoes, and chicken.
I love this buffalo chicken dip recipe and no one would know it is light.
I make a different breakfast on the weekends than what I eat during the week.
I mix up my normal egg casserole, veggies, Jimmy Dean turkey sausage breakfast for these sandwiches sometimes.
An easy dinner is AmyLu chicken gouda apple sausage and vegetables.
I want to try these Greek bowls. I stopped following decadent food accounts and now follow snackin_n_trackin and other healthy accounts on Instagram. You can search “WW” or “low carb” in the Instagram search feature. Then, when you follow one, you will find others.
Meal prepping is a must:
I tried a new recipe with these noodles, sun dried tomatoes, mushrooms, and “birdballs”. Thanks to Kim for the recipe that can be found here.
Erica made whole wheat pasta last week for one of our meals.
I think this Brownberry Keto bread is pretty good! I’m not doing Keto obviously but this bread is only one point per slice.
Cocktails really add up, so I like to look for alternatives. This makes a really good sub for a cocktail. I use half a stick of lemonade and pineapple coconut seltzer.
I really like Bubly.
I try not to have much in the way of processed foods or artificial sweeteners.
I am getting probably 8-10 servings of vegetables and fruits a day (combined), eating lean proteins, drinking two cups of coffee, and a half of a Premier protein, and then a sweet treat once or twice a day that might be a more artificial or processed food. I have popcorn, apples, string cheese, celery with a laughing cow of buffalo dip for a snack.
I drink as much water as I can.
I gave myself grace to not worry about walking for the first 3 weeks of school. I get 10,000 steps as a teacher no problem, anyway.
On the fourth week I started walking at least three times a week. Last week I walked four times.
I really like my On Cloud shoes. I love that you don’t have to tie them.
I am still drinking cocktails and eating out and I am LIVING life.
I can eat whatever I want when I eat out, but I have been choosing:
Nice Restaurants: salmon or fish and veggies
Chick Fil A: grilled nuggets and no fries but I will make a substitute type of some type of potato.
Thanks for visiting me! Share a food or recipe if you have any suggestions!
