11 Pounds Down! 

Eleven pounds might not sound like a lot, but it sure makes me happy. I have struggled with my weight for years! I would exercise for months and not drop a pound. I would watch my diet, but cave after a week. This time, I’ve stuck with it, and it working.  

So I’ve been following a 1200 calorie diet. I’m not being super strict with it.  I’m using the My Fitness Pal app. I’m pretty happy with it. It does what I need it to. It tracks my steps, but a lot of times I’m not carrying my phone around with me. If I go out walking, I’ll make sure I put it in my back pocket. 

Breakfast is usually just a yogurt. I found these 100 calorie Chobani Greek yogurts and they are delicious!!  They work well for me because I have a HUGE sweet tooth. 

It tastes like a cookie!!


Lunch is usually a lift salad with oil and vinegar, sometimes I’m even skipping the dressing. I only do that if I have a lot of toppings for my salad- grillled chicken, light cheese, veggies- and let me tell you, roasted chickpeas on a salad are amazing!!!  They are a perfect substitute for croutons. 

Today, I wasn’t home for lunch, so I made a to go lunch.  One huge apple, a serving of Triscuits, and a 100 calorie Special K treat. 

Then at dinner time I just make whatever. Tonight we’re having grilled chicken and veggies. If it’s a crazy night and we’re going to order pizza- I might have one piece, and then a big salad. 

So that’s it. I haven’t even been keeping up with working out.  I will commit to walking in the evenings for at least 15 min. Hopefully that will boost my weight loss. 

Any thoughts? Tips? 

😘
