Well it’s official. I’m out of my funk and focused again. I lost 20 pounds so far on my Ideal Protein-Modified diet, and yes I’m calling it a diet, and I’m OK with that. 20 pounds in 7 weeks. I “might” be within 5-10 pounds of squeezing into the next pant size down (coveted 10’s, followed by lustful 8’s hopefully)
I went to lunch at Applebee’s and am proud to report I made it to 10g Carbs and only 12g Fat with a whopping 35g protein intake, so feeling pretty darn impressed with myself. Turns out the last two weeks I had a Cabernet Mushroom Sirloin which had a “dainty” 39g of carbs in ONE SERVING. I think that might have had something to do with my stall in weight loss.
I learned my lesson though, and am getting the nutritional fact sheets from any and all restaurant I plan on frequenting, including but not limited to Buffalo Wild Wings (whom I love so dearly). My bracelet is jangling away with its newest charm, a motorcycle (to remind me I want to look HAWT for the Sturgis Rally this year) and it’s reviving my hope that I CAN and WILL do this.
