In a little over two weeks, I have lost 11 pounds. I have been tracking my calories on My Fitness Pal, and things have been going pretty well. Also, we don't have a lot of food right now- have to go grocery shopping.
Basically my menu looks like this
Spaghetti with whole wheat pasta/no cheese (I KNOW! I'm dying, here)
Baked chicken with rice or baked potato
And that's about it.
I think that what really helps is that I changed my work schedule so I am not awake when Brian is not home. I work until 5 in the morning and sleep until about noon, then we have family time from noon til 4, in which I cook at home, then Drake goes down for a nap at 4, Brian goes to work, and I take a nap. Drake is down for the night by 7 pm, and I sleep from 7 until I work at 11.
Rinse and repeat.
I miss cheese.
But I love being 11 lbs lighter. I successfully hit my secret goal: Be down 10 lbs by my birthday. Now I am going to try for 15. Wish me luck!!
