Week 30 weigh in. Post Thanksgiving update

Okay, Week 30 weigh in was okay. I only lost 0.6 this week. That makes a total of 57.2 pounds lost. Not bad considering I ate out 3 of the last 4 days while on Thanksgiving break. I did stay completely on plan. It wasn't too hard to do. Having a microwave at the hotel and using my parent's stove to make my Medifast Pancake was great.

I read Robb Wolf's book- the Paleo Solution. Very interesting as I'm exploring a modified Plaeo diet after transition from Medifast. The recipes look great. Looking forward to the variety that transition and maintenance will bring.

I was more active this week- mainly with walking and I added in 10 extra almonds as an optional snack. Looking forward to getting back to my regular routine. Probably about 9 pounds left until transition. I'll. need to make sure I'm past the plateau that I just powered past. 

Low tides again today! If you're reading this and in Southern California, take advantage of the low tides this afternoon. Fantastic and a nice way to spend the afternoon.

Holiday Guide by Beck Diet Solution 2011

I really, really liked this article about holiday eating, so I wanted to make sure I blogged about it.

Great tips for the "slippery slope" things we may tell ourselves during the holidays.

Read the guide  by clicking here.

It's so much better to not be eating sugary stuff or high carbs over the holidays. Two thumbs up for holiday "food sobriety".

Week 29 check in and normal BMI- I am Thankful!

Week 29, only down 1.2 pounds, but my BMI is finally in the normal range.  Whoot!

10 more pounds to go. The weight is coming off a little more slowly, but I can't complain too much.

Thankful for my job, my health, my family, and my friends. Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels.

Week 28, so close to a healthy BMI 25.05

Ahhhhh! Week 28. This is my last week in the overweight BMI range. My BMI is 25.05.

Lost this week 1.4 pounds

Total lost is 54.8 pounds

Ave loss per week is 1.96 pounds

So, even though my weight loss for this week is not very high, I've lost inches and was able to buy size 8 pants. All I can  say is that give an A+ to the Lee slimming pants and jeans. Very helpful after a large weight loss.  What isn't gone is nicely smoothed out and concealed. As one of my former bosses used to say, "My beauty days are over, now it's all about functionality! "  Oh, so true, Linda. :)

My Medifast order is going to miss the new cookies, but I've given away bars for friends to try, so I really need that shipment before the holiday week. The Medifast cupboard is starting to look bare. Oh well, the Medifast Chocolate Chip cookies will be a nice Christmas treat.

Week 27 weigh in

Okay, week 27 weigh in and I was down 2 more pounds.  Total of 53.4 pounds lost. Awesome!  I'm finding I'm a lot more active on the weekends now that I've lost weight.

I was able to spend some time walking in Coastal Orange County last week. Nice time of year to walk, cooler and awesome sunsets.
