Fat Girl on Weight Loss: Eating my Veggies

Down 12 pounds in a little over 14 days, most of which, I believe,  came from stabilizing hormones and losing water weight. I am still heavier then I was before Christmas.

What have I been doing?

The first two this were:

1) Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water

2) Be consistent in my devotional time

to this I added:

3) Eat more veggies and fruit (5-7 servings a day) and

4) reducing sugar and white flour consumption

On an average day I now eat something like this:

Breakfast: omelet with mushrooms or oatmeal with fruit

Lunch: large warm spinach salad with either chicken or bacon and a homemade or light dressing

Snack: banana

Dinner: a protein, a green veggie, and a starchy veggie

Evening: warm cup of sugar free cocoa thickened with chia seeds- helps with the urge to snack

The last thing I am attempting to add to my day is more exercise. I am generally moving about, but it is usually moving about washing dishes, checking in on kiddos, or fixing meals.  I am trying to work toward a total of 45 minutes of intentionally extra movement. Right now I am doing TTapp for 15 minutes each day, and trying to do more outside work as the weather permits. Also making time to engage in more active play with the kids.

  1. My one bad comment is I don’t like the F word. But you are on the right tracks, less to eat regarding carbs and more activity will work for most people, it is just a hard task. I wish you well and will follow your progress with delight.

    1. Thank you for your kind words and for reading! I apologize for any offense in my word choice, I do not use that word as a measure of value or merit, just finally owning to my own obesity and need to change.
