Starting Weight 1/10 – 251 (325 Sept 09)
Last Week- 246
Weight 2/4- 241
(I’ve started weighing in on Fridays and not Mondays)
Yep I lost 5 pounds last week! Things started out slowly but by Wednesday the EET plan finally kicked in. The first week was getting use to the new plan and figuring out what worked and what didn’t. For instance, I cut out pretty much all the fat in my diet. No mayonnaise, no butter and little oil. Sure I get the fat my body needs but other than that I cut it out. I want my body to attack my stored fat, not the fat I feed it.
I also reduced my dinner portion. I think this was the single biggest reason for the weight loss. By reducing how much food was in my stomach when I went to bed, it allowed my body to use up all the extra carbs and burn fat.
I wasn’t starving myself and never went to bed overly hungry. I have found being hungry is just a part of losing weight and burning fat. But there is a difference in being a tad hungry and literally being light-headed due to the lack of food consumption. Finding that right balance is tough but very rewarding in the end.
I didn’t weigh this morning but im sure I gained a few pounds since Friday. I had my daughter’s birthday party full of pizza and cake….I fired up my new grill on Sunday (had a tremendous Porterhouse steak btw) and then had a Super Bowl party to go to….But Im confident by Friday I will see more results!
How are y’all doing?
