Simple Diet - Day One

Monday, February 27, 2012

So today I weighed in - 287.5 - I'm down from my highest weight of 289.5 of two weeks ago. My short term goal is to get back to the 270's...my long term goal is 182.

So far today I have had a chocolate shake for breakfast and a cheese ravioli lean cusine for lunch with raw veggies on the side. I'll be having another shake in about an hour.

How'd I get here? Well...after a decade of holding within a couple of pounds of 27o the stress of taking on caregiving for my elderly parents-in-law and relying far too much on fast food for nearly three months now pushed me back into a gaining phase and I need to get a handle on it sooner rather than later. Given that same situation continues now I needed something that was as "easy" as running through the drive-thru. Preportioned frozen meals seem to fit the bill. This is the beginning of the chronicle of my progress.

    Here's to your new beginnings!

    I can so relate to your comment about needing something that is as easy as going to a drive-thru. That's exactly how it has been for me, which is one reason why I love the plan.

    Rooting for you!!

    It's a great plan. Make it work for you - keep the log and keep referring to the book! We're in this together.

    I am so glad you found The Simple Diet. I really feel that the plan has been a lifesaver for me. My weight had been on a slow and steady upward process for years landing me at my all time high of 343.5. I have just finished my 7th week on the plan and have lost 30.1 pounds so far.

    If there is anything I can do to help you on this journey please let me know.
