Yesterday was my first day back on the Medifast 5&1 Plan after a summer doing the 4-2-1 Plan. I thought it might be tough cutting back my intake, but it wasn't bad at all. It actually gave me more "free" time because I had one less meal to plan and cook. The only thing I missed yesterday was the fruit, but it'll be there when I get to goal. I got my fill over the summer and am okay with cutting it back out to reduce carbs again. Dinner was a favorite of mine: chicken sausage with green peppers, mushrooms, and tomato sauce over spaghetti squash. I walked and I biked, but got off the bike after 5 minutes due to foot pain in the ball of my right foot. Will try different shoes today.
I took my measurements this morning and they sucked. I cannot believe that NOTHING has shrunk since my last measurements in March when I weighed 217 pounds. In fact a few things increased by 1/4-1/2": my hips, arms, calves, and thighs. How is that even possible when I weigh less? Things look and feel so soft and jiggly. Everything is loose. It all squishes down quite a bit ad thus fits into smaller jeans, but when I measure I do not squish the fat down. I guess the severe activity restriction took a toll because I feel super flabby. But I was doing so much walking and swimming over the summer. Well I am not getting any younger and I will be working on shrinking things down and firming them up this month.
That's all for now.
