My goal for the juice fast was 10 days then a diet of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and beans for 10 days. But getting sick derailed everything. I had to stop the juice after 4 days and I knew I just couldn’t do what I need to do to lose weight on my own. I did Weight Watchers 10 years ago and lost 50 pounds so I know it’s a good program. So, here we are, I joined again and decided to pay for the actual meetings for a couple months for the support and accountability.
I jumped started the program before going to meetings by starting online. My favorite recipe is Zucchini fries.Zucchini Fries 1 Medium Zucchini 2T Olive Oil 1/4 c. Panko 3T. Heart Smart Bisquick Sea Salt Cut the zucchini into sticks. In a large bowl toss zucchini sticks in olive oil and sea salt then toss with the Bisquick and Panko. Spray a foil lined pan with non-stick spray or spray olive oil and spread the zucchini strips in a single layer. Bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes, turning 1/2 way through.
I wrote down all my food, drank my 60-100 ounces of water a day, ate all my fruits and vegetables, and ate no processed foods. There were no surprises when I hopped on the scale at my first meeting but at the second meeting I was pleasantly surprised with a 4 pound weight loss!!!! That combined with a 7 pound loss during the juice fast I was down 11 pounds in 2 1/2 weeks. I was very happy!
Goals for the up coming week:
Drink 60-100 ounces of water per day
Track all my food
Eat 6-9 servings of fruits and veggies
Have Mike take my “before” picture
