Jan 1, 2022… I weighed in at 215lbs.I’m on the prowl again. I began to research reasonable ways to lose weight.I knew it wouldn’t be easy but I wanted to find something that wasn’t going to be too difficult but reap results.(Isn’t that what we all want?) LOL
The detox: Water & Fruit & water smoothies for a week with a scoop of organic protein once a day. This was all I had for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for a month. The weight started falling off for the first three days, then I got stuck, fluctuating between 208 and 210. Collectively, I lost 5lbs in that first week. The second week was much slower. I started to get frustrated and do that old give up thing but I didn’t. I did a little more research and realized that even though I was doing just fruit smoothies and water, I was doing too much!!! I have a Ninja blender and I would use the biggest blender cup to make my smoothies and I would fill it as far as I could go… Big mistake. Each smoothie I was making was about 1500 calories… And I was drinking 3 to 4 of these a day!!! That’s 4500 calories based on a national average of 2000 calories per day. That was my problem! I was taking in too many calories!!!
From January 12th to February 10th was a drag.I was getting frustrated again fluctuation between 207 and 205lbs. Even though I was frustrated, I didn’t stop trying to eat healthier and keep doing my smoothies.BUT… SOMETHING STILL WASN’T RIGHT
