Well, not the main goal, but my mini goal has been met!!!
20.5lbs down in 28 days! I have even lost a total of 27 inches. This diet is strict and unforgiving. It is hard work. But I see a bigger picture in the end. One that leads to better health and hopefully going off some of my medications for polycystic ovarian syndrome. I know the thyroid issue will never go away, but maybe it will improve with less weight to deal with.
On Saturday night we ordered in. I have been very cautious about this, but was able to ask for grilled chicken and an additional order of steamed broccoli in place of the rice that came with the meal. It was nice not having to cook for a change and still eat on protocol. I don't think the broccoli is on Simeons plan but it is on the OWL plan, so I made an exception.
My parents and brother are visiting from Memphis this week. We had dinner together last night at our place. I made broiled key lime salmon, sauteed diver scallops, wild brown rice, and steamed asparagus. Since I was the cook, I broiled me some flounder (since I cannot have salmon), had the scallops. and the asparagus with it. I even turned down the pina colada and had a rum and coke zero (1/2 a shot-this is allowed on the OWL plan).
I also cheated for the first time on this diet. I was dreading the scales, but did not gain! I made key lime pie with the meringue topping. I did use a low fat graham crust and a fat free sweetened condensed milk. I had a small slice and it was heaven!
Tonight is dinner at my parents condo. I will be able to stay on protocol since it is steak and salad!
**As far as the weekly re-cap, I lost 6lbs this week!!!
More recipes to come. Husband has asked for taco salad this week. He loves it as much as I do!
