I was catching up on my blogs today and I came across a new post that I could really relate with. Zaababy has made fantastic progress in her weight loss journey, check out her before and after pics here, but that is not what caught my attention. What brought me in most was when she was comparing her results with someone in her neighbourhood that had a lap-band surgury. Zaababy has lost 90 lbs and is still going, in comparision with this other individual that is experiencing a stall and has not lost as much as her. Zaa was uncomfortable talking with this other person that she has not seen in a while because of how the other would take the situation. This whole thing kind of reminded me about the situation that myself and my friend Bailey are in. She works out a lot harder than I do and she has lost weight, but since she joined Curves with me, she has gone from around 275 to 269 lbs in 5 months. We're doing this journey together and I wish that she would see better results because I feel guilty bringing up how much weight that I have lost, not that I have lost a lot of weight either though. I want to be able to tell her about the progress I'm making and that my old jeans fit again, but she tells me that hers just feel tighter, so I try and stay quiet. I wish that I could celebrate these things by teller her but I would feel bad about putting it in her face. She tells me that she eats well so I don't understand why she isn't seeing better results, I don't think that she would lie to me about what she is eating.
Speaking of food, this week I'm going back on my meal plan with a few variations. I'm not going to be eating as much food as it wants me too, there is no way that I can eat 6 oz of turkey for lunch or 8 oz of tofu in a salad, it was just way too much. This morning I had a cup of plain yogurt mixed with rasberry yogurt (I didn't have enough plain), 2 cups 1% milk and a small handful of mixed nuts. I felt like I was eating for an hour and I don't have that much time to eat in the mornings. Here is the plan as far as my meals go:
- I'm going to eat the foods it tells me to
- BUT I will each smaller portions
