The Overweight Anarchist- continued

GO ME!... while not a big step the first goal has been met and I am now down from 192 to  185 pounds . ( You can read the start of my adventure HERE ) It has not been awful but boy it has been hard!  Hard from the  standpoint of having to plan things out even more in my already complicated life so I can make sure to have healthy snacks with me so that I don't just grab anything that comes my way ( chips, cookies etc). I am also doing a lot of reading on alternative recipes since I refuse to eat " diet food".. there has to be a sensible way to eat and to be able to eat well. For many junk food is their problem, for me it's carbs like pasta and sauces like Alfredo!

One thing that has really helped  is making sure I have a high protein breakfast that solidly holds me until lunch time.


Fage Greek yogurt, frozen berries, a handful of almonds topped with just a dab of Blueberry Agave. Cool, not too heavy and packed with protein..perfect.

My next goal is 183 pounds...slow and steady wins the race!

You're doing great! I'm trying to lose weight too. The biggest thing I did was get rid of soda. I used to drink 4 a day. Now I drink MAYBE one a week. Since doing that I've lost 10 lbs. Hoping to lose another 10 by the end of the year. I'll still be overweight, but overweight by 20lbs less. :)
