In regards to sticking to the menu plan, last week was even worse than the previous one. I must shamefully admit I didn’t make a single meal. This week will be different.
Some people are yo-yo dieters. I’m a yo-yo exerciser / “change my dieter”. How I wish I was more consistent. From time to time I get lazy and neglect my appearance and health. But that phase will last just long enough for me to feel fat.
Lately, my pants have gotten almost unbearably tight. Unlike many people who see their weight creep up, I refuse to buy bigger clothes. I won’t make getting fat and unhealthy comfortable. Plus, I don’t wanna spend the money. (Surprise, surprise.)
I’ve set a goal to lose 15 pounds in 12 weeks. That’s 1.25 pounds per week, which will bring me to a weight of 135 pounds. Although no reasonable person would say that I’m fat (except for me), I think it’s easier to lose 15 pounds as opposed to 50. So, whenever I see my weight getting out of control, I get serious. Yes, I should be serious all the time, but I’m not. Let’s see if this time will be different.
Monday/Tuesday – Chicken Stew
Friday/Saturday – Beef Daube Provencal
Sunday – Cube Steak with Onion Mushroom Gravy and Mashed Potatoes
