Tuesday - January 8, 2008

I will be honest. I have not been posting my calorie counts on the web for almost the past month. This is because of the business of the holiday and my dad having a heart attack and being hospitalized. But, the good thing is that I have been keeping track of my calories and I've kept myself around my 1,000 calorie a day limit. Yippee!

Today I made a delicious english muffin breakfast sandwich with sausage, egg, and cheese for only 280 calories.

For lunch I ate at Bellacino's and had a turkey light sub and a side salad for a total of 600 calories.

For dinner I'm going to eat a turkey sandwich for 170 calories and have a little bit of Orville popcorn for 50 calories.

This will bring me to 1100 calories for the day.

Today was pretty good. I had a taco salad without the shell (430 cal.) from Taco Bell for lunch.
For supper I made sloppy joes out of ground turkey (520 cal.), green beans (20 cal.), and corn (80 cal.). It was delicious!
Total calories for today are 1050 calories. Delicious!

Today I had chinese food.

I didn't get to drink my shake because I forgot since I was working on the snow.

From the chinese place I had an order of beef in black bean sauce (530 cal.), part of an order of rice (300 cal.), a bite of an eggroll (75 cal. since I don't know), and a bite of a crag rangoon (75 cal. since I don't know).

That's a total count of 980 calories for the day.

Saturday - December 15, 2007

Today was my first day on my new program. I feel like I did a pretty good job.

For breakfast I had two eggs (140 cal.) and a piece of dry diet toast (35 cal.).

For supper tonight I had some pork sirloin (346 cal.), turnip greens (60 cal.), mashed potatoes (140 cal.), corn (120 cal.), and green beans (40 cal.). Yummy!

I still have to eat my soy chips, some "hot cocoa," and also have a couple bags of popcorn (50 cal.) to snack on for later.

With all this stuff I have eaten and the stuff I have to eat I'm only at 991 calories.

Awesome, huh?!?

I forgot to eat my 100 cal. chips today.

New Program from Dr. Soudah

My doctor set me up on a new program today. My total daily calories will remain the same (1350 calories) but the make-up will be different.
Now I will be eating two 500 calorie meals, one snack of soy protein chips (100 cal.), and drinking one protein shake (250 cal.) each day.
I think this is going to be a little bit more of a challenge for me since I'll be eating two meals a day, but at the same time I think it might be easier since I'll be able to eat two small meals each day. 
Keep me in your prayers as I attempt this second program. I don't go back to the doctor until January. That's four weeks on this to see how I do.
Let me know your thoughts!

12 Week Success!!!!

Today I went to the doctor and found out my new weight loss total.
I lost another 5 pounds.
That's a total of 47 pounds in 12 weeks!

Today was good. I had Noodles & Company again. It was great!
I had Japanese pan noodles with shrimp (690 cal.) and a packet of soy chips (100 cal.) my doctor gave me.
Total for today was 790 calories.
Feeling pretty good!
