15 in 50 Challenge – 1st day results were beyond my wildest dreams!

Let me begin by saying results may vary and that I ate my way all through Sunday before I got on the scale Monday morning to start my 15 in 50 Challenge and weighed in at 159.7  which is on the high side for me.

This morning I woke up having to hit the ‘john’ for the fourth time since going to sleep last night… I drank a lot water yesterday. I find that by  mixing a pitcher of water with a packet of Wyler’s Light Pink Lemonade or one of their flavors, it just helps get the water in.

My first day I dropped…

5.3 pounds

Starting today – day 2 at 154.4

I am very happy.

Today I again planned my day early this morning and thought I share with you a two-day look at how I journal.

Daily Food Journal

You get the idea even if the journal is hard to read. I PLAN.

I plan – when I have a meal replacement.

I plan – what I’m going to have as a meal replacement.

I plan – my Lean & Green meal that morning or the night before.  I know what I’m having for dinner and for a snack.

Planning  is key. When I get lazy… that’s when I see a gain on the scale. So I’m going to continue to track and encourage you to do the same.

Did you know according to statics those folks who track lose on average 20% more weight than those who don’t.  I like a 20% advantage!  Who wouldn’t?

I’m thankful that I have not been hungry. That’s because I graze all through the day on little meals that are packed with carbs and protein.  I’ve also learned the hard way,  to keep my coffee intake down or the caffeine will rev up my appetite…and that is a killer to live with.

Have a good evening and I’ll check back in tomorrow with hopefully more great results.
