I plan on keeping Tuesdays as my official weigh-in day. Official where I report it to all of you here on the interwebs. My stalkers.
Instead of buying the expensive 100-calorie packs of almonds I decided to buy a large bag of 32 ounces for $9.99 and baggie all of them up myself. With the nutrition label set for 30g (or 1/4 cup) at 170 calories, I did about two thousand snack baggies of 15g each, or 85 calories. Took probably 30-45 minutes. Don’t know how much money I actually saved, You have to figure time, as well as cost of baggies. Probably not much. One thing I know for sure…..it takes some emotional strength to measure out two thousand baggies of almonds at 15g each. Or insanity.
Loss(-)/Gain(+): -4.5 lbs
Current Weight: 229.5 lbs
So this was my last weigh-in at the Medi-Weightloss Clinic of Deerfield, Illinois, before they close their doors on 5/31. According to their scale I weighed 228.8, but I’m converting my “official” numbers to be off of my own scale, a Fitbit Wi-fi scale.
I have decided to go it alone, with periodic visits to my family doctor. I need to change my appointment so that I see her before my phentermine pills run out (I have 3 weeks worth left). If she doesn’t want me on the pills, fine, but then I need to understand from her how to taper off properly. I also want to understand from her what her opinion is on B1/B6/B12 shots….which I received B1/B6 shots once per week and B12 twice per week. I have no idea if the shots helped, or what they were to help…..
Here are my stats:
||Weeks on Plan
||Pounds to Goal
I certainly do not think I will lose 3.5 pounds per week average the entire time. I expect it to slow down. If I lose an average of 2.5 pounds per week I will hit my goal by my mom’s birthday, 10/25.
OK, laundry is calling. More soon. 🙂
