I am overdue on my weekly diet protocol status. So far, I have lost up to nine pounds. I have been holding steady at 124 to 125. I did eat more than the 650 calories this weekend, which is over the recommended amount. Getty was away snowboarding so a friend stayed over. We did have dessert each night so that delayed my weight loss. However, I haven’t gained weight back but held steady at 124-125. I went back on the diet protocol on Monday.
I am still losing my muffin top weight, as my pants are getting looser. I have lost quite a bit of craving for sugar and have done a good job of walking past the candy in the kitchen. The pop-tarts no longer call out my name. When I get the late night urge to eat, I eat celery or an apple and that seems to satisfy me. This is a huge step as for the last three years, I have been eating ice cream before I go to bed. Once I get my new weight set point and eat right, then I will allow myself the ice cream and other treats but not as much as before.
A couple of items that I still have to remind myself to do is to drink the water, take my vitamins and take my 180 at least 15 minutes before the meals. The amount of water is 5% of my body weight. So, 5% of 133 is 66 oz of water a day. I break this out over the day. I do not count my coffee as part of this.
Another friend of mine also started the same time as I did. We just compared notes and we have lost the same amount of weight. I will see how she does by this weekend.

I still walk up to two miles a day at work and I feel better. It certainly helped that today was bright and sunny.
I will update more this weekend and hopefully by then I will have lost 1-2 more pounds to reach my desired weight, then will learn to retrain my body to stay at that weight. It sure will be nice to be at my old weight again and able to wear my old clothes again.
Some people have been giving me grief about going on a weight program. I have lost weight and feel good about it. I have not gained my weight back even though I went over the suggest calories. I feel much better physically. If you want to lose weight, find a program that work for you and stick with it. This one has been proven and works so I will continue to use it. In a week or so, I plan to be eating back to normal calories and maintaining my weight. I have had people at work notice my weight loss and mention it to me. That was amazing. One was a guy and that about floored me. One day, I will scare them by wearing a dress. None of my dresses fit me now but when I can fit into one, I will wear one to work. Usually I wear funky pants or nice jeans. The dress might have to wait until we do get some warmer weather though.
