Take It Off Monday

I kinda had a feeling that this week would not be a HUGE weight loss week.  And it wasn't, I was right.  But after losing 5 pounds last week, it wouldn't be normal {or healthy} to continue losing weight that fast. I will say, however, that even though I only lost a pound this week, I still feel better than I did last week.  I just feel a lot less bloated, overall, which I'm excited about! {Perhaps I'm losing inches?  Have to count the non-scale victories (NSV) too, right!?!}

It's been awhile since I talked about how the plan works, so let me tell you about it: I'm on the 5 and 1 Plan.  That means that I eat 5 Medifast Meals per day plus 1 Lean & Green meal.  I usually save my lean & green meal for dinner time, because it allows me to eat with my family.  In addition to these items, you can have 1-2 Medifast snacks per day. 

Now there are a hundred different ways you can do this plan, but here's what works for me {on the average day}:

8:30am- Medifast Meal 1 {ex: Spiced Pancakes}
10:30am- Medifast Snack {ex: Spicy Black Bean Veggie Chips}
12:30pm- Medifast Meal 2 & 3 {ex: Macaroni & Cheese and Honey Mustard Pretzel Sticks}
3pm- Medifast Meal 4 {ex: Peanut Butter Crunch Bar}
5:30pm- Lean & Green Meal {ex: grilled chicken, broccoli/squash/zucchini mix & a side salad}
8pm- Medifast Meal 5 {ex: Brownie}

I usually skip the mid-morning Medifast meal because lunch is usually when hunger hits its peak for me.  So if I can get by with a snack {and lots of water} around 10:30am, then it allows me to eat two things together for lunch, which keeps me much fuller {and less likely to cheat!}

Like I said, there are a million different ways you can follow the program, but this worked for me last time {when I lost 30 pounds!} so imma stick with it, mmmkay?
