It can be hard for me to wait a whole week to record a loss on the scale. With MyFitnessPal, there’s a little progress chart, and it’s so tempting to enter in a new weight as soon as I reach it [even if it’s just 0.2lb less!]. At first I was logging changes almost daily, but now that I’m about 10 weeks into this, the rate has evened out. It’s better to just record my weight once a week, and that’s what I’m trying to do.
Ah, the fight to exercise self-control in all things…and to build patience too!
Anyway! All that to introduce my news: since last Wednesday, I have lost 0.8lb. My total weight loss is 23.4lbs!
It may not seem like much, but I am pleased with the downward direction. :) I took this photo at the beginning of the week and am so excited to see my face changing along with the scale!
And now I can start to see a pattern to my losses. I will share each week with you [not ready to actually list my weight yet, but time will soon come when I will!]:
1) 10.10.12 (Start)
2) 10.17.12 (-6.8)
3) 10.24.12 (-1.6)
4) 10.31.12 (-3.2)
5) 11.07.12 (-2.2)
6) 11.14.12 (-0.8)
7) 11.21.12 (-2.6)
8) 11.28.12 (-1.2)
9) 12.05.12 (-2.2)
10) 12.12.12 (-0.8)
So I know, whenever I see a small loss like that, it will catch up to what I’d like to see [1-2lbs of loss per week]. Not sure I’ll hit my 30lbs loss mark by New Year’s – I hope to as that’d be a GREAT way to start the new year! – but if I don’t, I’ll still have lost quite a bit of weight. :)
Foodwise, I’ve been trying to eat more tofu lately. Mmm, I LOVE tofu. Especially when my mom makes it in a spicy Korean soup called Kimchi Jigae. That would be my favorite. She’s taught me how to make it with potsticker dipping sauce, and it’s so easy!
Yum. :) Now, I’ve tried a couple of dishes on my own, and they weren’t quite as good…but it’s just my execution of it, I believe. I tend to go too fast with a new recipe, and the end result can be interesting.
I tried to make Sauteed Tofu with Coconut Curry Sauce:
It was actually yummy, but a bit watery! And then just recently I attempted to make a dish called Soy-Lime Tofu:
Although I didn’t have a few of the ingredients and just tried to make it without. Yeah. Doesn’t look too appetizing, hmm? I still had it with brown rice and my mom’s kimchi, which saved the day!! ;)
Are you trying out any new foods/recipes?
Today’s breakfast is my go-to one:
Two pieces of whole grain toast [I get the Kroger brand one with high fiber], two tbsp of peanut butter [yes, that’s 2!], one cup of strawberry halves, and one cup of skim milk. Delicious and filling! I actually crave this for breakfast now, and it’s not unusual for me to have this 4-5 times/week!
Thanks for stopping by. :) Have a great Wednesday!
