The Plan – Two Months Later

Ah, the result of eating turkey meatloaf is that I’ve lost 11 lbs. since I started this plan on 3/19/06, and taken off a total of 4.7″.

I admire any of you who have had to lose 25 lbs or more ever, in your life. I’ve never had this much to lose before, and I am really really sick of this sterile way of eating – measuring everything & all. I’m about a third of the way through my weight loss, so if I keep losing it at about the same rate, I’ll reach my goal weight in about four months – or by our 5th wedding anniversary.

It’s kind of nice to look forward to, but in the meantime – ugh to green beans already!

  1. I hate to tell you this, Helen, but once you get to your goal, the secret to staying there is to continue all the measuring. At least according to my wife.

  2. Yes, you really can’t go back to eating the way you did when you gained the weight in the first place. When my wife is in maintenance mode, she sill weighs and measures when at home. But she can then eat what she wants when she goes out.
