Had my official weigh-in today and a workout with my personal trainer. So far in the first 14 weeks of the program I’ve lost a total of 35 lbs. All of the numbers don’t quite add up so don’t do the math yourself. I was down 2.4 lbs this week.
I have 2 weeks left in phase one of the program and if weight loss stays on track I will have lost 40 lbs in 16 weeks. Roughly 2.5 lbs a week. My target weight likely will require a bit more weight loss following phase one. I had originally hoped to get down to my target weight during phase one. But I suspect I will need 3 – 4 more weeks to get closer to 165.
Following phase one I will move to 2 workouts a week, but will likely delay that change until I hit my ideal weight. At my dietician appointment last week we added back beans and this week we added back starchy vegetables.
I made turkey chili in the instapot which turned out really good and I had it for lunch all week. Will try a beef version next week and hopefully Chris and Zoe will like it.
