Note on pict: last night's dinner just took three ingredients. You can buy these tuna packages in different flavors at your store. They cost about $2.19. I throw the whole package in the oven for about 10 minutes while its pre-heating to 350 and then drizzle the whole thing, juice and all, over freshly made brown rice. It's an easy, tasty, nutritious, high-protein, low calorie meal.

1/3 cup of freshly cooked green beans 30, 3/4 cup of brown rice 126. 1 package of specialty tuna 140 total: 296

I Hit the Five Pound Mark

This post is not so much informational as it is just me expressing on my diet blog the little bit of excitement I feel at having lost five pounds. Actually what I'm sharing with you all now, is similar to what I might write in my food diary. I always used my food diary to express my weight loss goals and feelings associated with them.

I'm excited because I've lost five pounds in 11 days. I have three more days till day 14. I'm hoping to drop another pound by Monday. That will make it six pounds in two weeks. I am soooo determined to NOT mess up this weekend, so I can skate in on pound less.

Also, allow me to speculate on the future. At this rate, I could very well lose 2 pounds a week over the next two weeks. So, hear, me now...I could be looking at a 10 pound drop in four weeks.

I'll have to admit it to you all. I think I may very well be doing better than I would have done if I hadn't started this blog. Maybe it has something to do with wanting to be a good role model...I don't really feel pressure, but I feel like I'm being a lot more nit-picky about everything I eat.

So, that's my little sharing time with you all. Five pounds in 11 days. Now I'm shooting for the next five to be gone by the end of my fourth week.


  1. 5 lbs?!?! You are doing so great, plus with children around - I'm sure there is temptation lurking. Way to go! Keep on trucking.

  2. You are kicking butt! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I'll be checking out your other blogs as well. The tuna dish looks delish!
