Breakfast-2 pieces of string cheese and 1 beef stick
Lunch-1/2 cup cottage cheese and an apple
Snack-1/2 cup greek yogurt with 1 tbsp. almond butter
Dinner-small salad with lettuce, 100 g chicken breast, 1/4 pear, 1 tbsp. gorgonzola, onion and 6-8 pecans with a vinaigrette dressing.
Snack-dark chocolate covered pomegranate bits (perhaps 20 or 30...they were tiny) and yogurt covered almonds (a handful...maybe 6-8).
I walked for 2.5 hours in the morning and did about 20 min. of yoga in the evening.
I worked on my book the the remainder of the day, so not much movement, though I did some house work on and off.
Really? That made me gain more than a pound?
I have decided that the way I'll know if I need to do another round is to see what my weight does in the next two weeks. If I don't get down to my lowest point so far this year by my birthday, I'll do another. That will mean 3 weeks of concentrated effort will have done nothing to bring my weight down and it's warranted.
I realize that muscle weighs more than fat, and that my fat ratio is perfect according to the stupid body composition analyzer. But at what point does this increased muscle burn that extra fat that I do not want?
I'm off to get my treadmill time in. Grudgingly.
I struggled with my weight for over 20 years. I tried everything to lose weight. Yes, I did 'eat less, move more' repeatedly, convinced that doing the same thing over and over would someone yield different results. Desperate, having diligently done all the 'right' things and being told by several doctors that there was nothing wrong with me except that I wasn't trying hard enough, in 2009 I tried what seemed crazy: Dr. Simeons Hcg protocol. I lost 85 lb.
