Week 1 Weight Loss Update

So it's been 1 week of "Plan B" weight loss/healthy eating/feeling good. I haven't been a real stickler on the whole "diet" thing- because I am NOT on a diet. I just want to FEEL good about my body.

Beginning stats:
144 lbs
33" waist (across my bellybutton)
40" hips
24" upper thigh

1 Week later:
142 lbs
33" waist
39.5" hips
24" upper thigh

So- not much has changed, but I did lose 2 lbs. And losing 2 is better than gaining 2!

I played around with the Herbalife shakes and figured what I like the taste/texture of best. So here's my general recipe:

8 oz juice - either orange, apple, pineapple this week
2 scoops Berry Healthy Meal Powder
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
2-3 spoonfuls of yogurt (plain or if I use a flavor yogurt then I don't add fruit)
handful of frozen fruit - strawberries or blackberries this week
handful of ice (like 3-4 ice cubes)

So every morning for breakfast I have a shake (more like a smoothie). And almost every day for lunch I've had one too, but I add a wedge of Laughing Cow Lite cheese and some pita crackers. (155 calories for the cheese/crackers). I think one day this week I made a sandwich. I have been careful about snacking and portions. I am more selective about what food I buy. I figured if there's no junk food in the house, I won't be as tempted to snack.

I walked 3 miles on the treadmill yesterday. That was the only day I got to the gym last week. This coming week I expect to see a little more weight loss since Lilly is back in school and I plan to go straight to the gym after I take her to school.

So that's my update, and so far 2 of my friends and Mike have tried my "smoothie concoctions" and were quite impressed.
