I weighed in this morning and.... DRUM ROLL PLEASE.... So far I have lost a total of 21 pounds!!!! I think that’s pretty good for one month don’t you? That means I have lost the amount of weight that was on the bottom shelf of that one picture I had posted a while back! (I will re-post picture at bottom of this post) - I am beyond thrilled! I only lost 6 pounds in the past 2 weeks but I guarantee I would have lost more if I wasn’t weight lifting and building muscle. In the beginning I said I was prepared for that hurdle and I was. I am still happy as a clam. My Mom had already ordered me teeth whiting strips for my 20 pound present and I finally got to get them today. It's a 14 day thing and I started with my first strips today. I love her!
The picture below is of my snack I had last night. I think I am going to start having these for lunch! It filled me up and was only 170 calories. I was in a debate between 2 tortilla brands and I ended up getting the kind I have pictured below. I got the one I got because it had a saying on the front about how they were perfect for the serious dieter lol.
In the wrap I chopped up lettuce and I added honey ham. I got these little lunch meat portion packs on sale for $1 each! Each pack is 60 calories. I also added one thin line of mustard and peppered it! It was very good! The only downer is the tortillas were a little expensive. They were $5 for 8 but I have wasted my money on much worse lol. Also each tortilla is only 80 calories!
