You all know that my goal at the start of the year was to lose 15 pounds. Here’s what I have done during the first four weeks of 2011.
1. For the first three days, I went into a juice cleansing diet.
2. After the juice diet, I consumed 1,000 calories per day. This consisted of low fat meals eaten anywhere from 6-7 times a day.
3. I stayed away from alcohol and coffee – items that stir my appetite.
(I have to say that numbers 2 and 3 were very hard to do since I am an avid eater and I enjoy cocktails.)
4. I did 30-45 minute runs, 3-4 times a week.
The result was a consistent weight loss of about 2-3 pounds per week. That’s a total of 9 pounds.
Here’s the downside. Although I continued all of the above, I have not lost weight for about a week and a half. So frustrating!
Despite this setback, I am still determined to reach my goal. Obviously, I will have to change things a bit.
