Nutrition, 11/8 - 11/10

Having lost (much to my surprise) about 17 lbs. in the last month and a half, I think I'm going to start recording my meals/snacks again, just to have a record of what I'm doing to lose the weight. As I stated in an earlier post I'm not following any particular diet, per se. I'm just confining my nutrition to Weight Watcher's list of core foods which include lean meats, eggs, lowfat dairy, fruits and vegetables, whole grains. As I mentioned, this is no magic thing. No pills or magic formulas. I'm just trying to choose healthy foods and limit my intake to what satiates me.

Tuesday 11/8

4:00pm (meal)
Comfort Zone (before): 2
1 egg
3 slices of canadian bacon
small bowl of Whole Oat O's (from Whole Foods)
skim milk
Comfort Zone (after): 4

8:00pm(meal)
Comfort Zone (before): 3
small ribeye steak
salad
tomato
fat free Ranch
Comfort Zone (after): 4
Ribeye's not the best cut of steak for me but that's what I had in the freezer. No harm done

Tuesday 11/8

1:30am(meal)
Comfort Zone (before): 1
chicken parmesan
spinach pasta
broccoli
Comfort Zone (after): 4

7:45am(meal)
Comfort Zone (before): 2
blueberry parfait with:
blueberries
granola
yogurt
Not the best meal but it was the best they served at UHD cafeteria. I'm sure the yogurt was not lowfat and there was probably a lot of sugar in the granola. Still, I'll be ok. It was better than eating nothing at all and gorging when I finally got home.

4:30pm(meal)
Comfort Zone (before): 2
Whole Oat O's
Skim milk
3 slices of canadian bacon
Comfort Zone (after): 4

Thursday 11/10

12:30am (meal)
Comfort Zone (before): 2
breadless turkey sandwich
little bit of cole slaw
Comfort Zone (after): 4

7:00am (meal)
Comfort Zone (before): 2
apple
Comfort Zone (after): 3

4:30pm (meal)
Comfort Zone (before): 2
Whole Oat O's cereal
skim milk
Comfort Zone (after): 3

7:00pm (meal)
Comfort Zone (before): 2
salad:
   lettuce
   tomato
   chicken breast
   low-carb ranch (just a little)
2 pieces of fried chicken
OOPS!!! J brought fried chicken home for everyone. That's my weakness. It's so hard to eat right when the rest of your family eats wrong! little bit of cole slaw
Comfort Zone (after): 4

Congrats on the 17 lbs. That's awesome. Assuming 30 days in a month that's an average of 1.76 pounds per day! With approximately 50 days left in the year, imagine what you could be down to by the end of the year at your current lost rate.

Keep it Up! Your doing great!

P.S. I assume you have some type of night job as your eating in the middle of the night on a regular basis. That would make it tougher for me. WTG!

yikes, I wish your math was right. 17 lbs in about 45 days is about 2.7 lbs a week. I think this is a good, moderate weight loss for someone as heavy as I am. Thanks for the word!!! Seeya Sunday

yeah, night job. That's why I don't call anything by it's proper name (i.e. breakfast, lunch, dinner). It just confuses people. :)

Vic,

Congratulations. Weight loss is a huge challenge for all of us!

Way to go, Vic! Losing weight can be difficult (I know), but you're doing a great job! Plus, your food journal is making me hungry. Blueberry parfait sounds yummy.

By the way, I'm really enjoying PHP. I'm still in the beginning stages, but the basic concepts have been pretty easy to understand so far. What I like most about it is that it's not too complicated, it uses pretty accessible language (i.e., don't have to learn code-speak), and seems like a flexible yet powerful tool for blogging. Thumbs up from me!

See you Sunday!
