I have been following this plan for about 3.5 months. Here it is. I’ve been messing with it a little but mostly it’s been staying the same. Healthy eating and lots of walking. It seems to be working.
No sugary foods- Included on this list: Candy, juice, soft drinks, chocolate, donuts and cake. (Typing this up makes me want to have all of these items) Foods I am going easy on: White flower bread products, fried foods, beer/wine, red meat and ketchup.
Every day Eating: Fruit in the morning, for lunch, fish or chicken with vegetables and salad, for dinner eat reasonably, after dinner a reasonable snack.
Exercise: Walking 5 to 6 times a week about 50 minutes to 75 minutes, usually after dinner. I have been walking about 2 to 3.5 miles per walking session. Averaging about 15 miles of walking a week.
Notes: I am tracking what I eat at the end of the day. (I have been posting this in this blog regularly) I am also tracking my walking sessions and the amount of days I have gone without eating sugary foods. I am weighing myself every week. When I eat out and on out social occasions I will not follow the plan except that I will not eat sugary foods and I will try to be reasonable. I am taking about 2 shots a night of a mix of Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar and warm water.
The goal: To lose weight slowly and keep it off. I am hoping to lose 2 to 5 pounds per month.
The results so far: I have lost 19.5 pounds in about 14 weeks. (So down to 224.5)
And finally if anyone has any suggestions or comments please chime in. I am all about improving this plan.
