Operation Weight Loss - The Incredible Shrinking Woman! Week 12

I am proud to report that this week I am down 2.8 pounds for a grand total of 29 pounds since the week of Thanksgiving! I am in New York with my mom celebrating her birthday and as you can imagine there were so many different treats to tempt me. I had birthday cake and my favorite crab mold (thanks Aunt Charlotte) delicious! I was also able to spend time with my friends from high school - Hi Mike! Hi Frank!

Last night Frank and I went to dinner. We had Japanese, my favorite! It is so nice catching up with old friends over good food. Despite watching being mindful of what I am eating, I still make time to enjoy life. I eat everything that I like but in moderation. Over these 12 weeks I have really learned that portion control is key. And since I am steadily losing weight, clearly this works for me!

On the exercise front, I did Jillian Michaels - the addition of weights to my program is challenging my muscles. I also did a 3 mile walk and 312 crunches in 3 minutes as part of the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans Olympics. I love that those gals keep challenging me every step of the way.

Well, I am preparing to leave New York for home it is a winter wonderland and I am crossing my fingers that my flight will not be delayed.

I have to say this one more time - I AM DOWN 29 Pounds! I'm excited and looking forward to losing the next 20!

Here is my vlog for this week:

I've tried various low-carb, low-calorie, and low-fat diets for the past couple of years. Although the Atkins diet is very popular, it made me feel somewhat unhealthy.
The diet plan I'm on right now is the Medifast Diet. The caloric intake is roughly 800-1000 calories. However, it doesn't make my body feel weak. It is a bit of a pricey diet, but there are plenty of coupons available on the internet (i.e. http://www.swoopup.com/stores/deals/Medifast-Diet). You should never pay full price.
My advice is just choose a diet plan which your body reacts positively to. No one knows your body better than you do!
