The scale was good to me this week as it was last week: this morning I weighed 211 pounds. That's a big loss of 4 pounds this week! That makes a total of 11 pounds lost since I re-started Medifast on November 18... almost a month ago. I have averaged 2.75 pounds a week so far, which is a bit higher than Medifast's expected loss of 1-2 pounds per week. I figure it will slow down later like it did last time, so I am enjoying the nice losses while I can.
Here's a snapshot of my eating, which is always 5 Medifast meals and a Lean & Green meal (5-7 oz lean protein, 1.5-3 c. low carb veggies, and up to 2 fat servings). I rarely have the optional snack but it is there if I get hungry.
Friday's dinner was Egg Beaters scrambled with turkey sausage, mushrooms, yellow squash, green onions, and low fat cheddar cheese.
Saturday I logged my food for the first time in a couple of weeks. I had:
Medifast berry crunch cereal with Silk unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Medifast peach oatmeal muffin with black coffee
Medifast sloppy joe on a big flat "cracker" made of low fat cheese microwaved until crispy
Medifast peanut butter crunch bar
Big plate of baked baby kale chips made with olive oil and sea salt
8 oz Greek yogurt mixed with 1 packet of Splenda, 1/4 c Egg Beaters and vanilla extract, baked and chilled
hot decaf green tea
Medifast soft bake cookie
Stats for the day:
93 g protein (40%)
96 g carbs (40%)
20 g fat (20%)
I feel very satisfied staying 100% on plan. My calories are usually closer to 1000 and my carbs closer to 85, but I am still in the range I need to be. Not sure what I am having for dinner tonight; I've thought about baking some fish and vegetables, so I may do that.
My feet have been better this weekend by about 60%. My heels are still very sore to the touch, but walking is getting less painful. I admit this whole daily foot pain thing is frustrating, but I am doing all I can and hoping it continues to improve. Here's to another good week!
