Week 5 on Take Shape For Life has been a challenging one. Still, I am down to 207 – two pounds for the week – twenty-three pounds in five weeks.
My feeding schedule has been all out of whack this week so I've ended up skipping some MediFast/TSFL meals – a no-no that threatens my "fat burning" stage. Dinner at the Outback last night with some friends visiting from out of town and Mother's Day out to dinner this Sunday will add to the challenge. I'm learning to manage my restaurant eating to conform to the Lean and Green approach.
I found two pair of old pants in my closet that fit me – baggy. I'm holding off going clothes shopping until I get to my goal of 190. Then again, I don't want to look like a hobo in someone else's oversized pants… but there is a certain satisfaction in gathering my size 38 pants at the waist when I used to fill the size 40s.
