***I used this recipe for Parmesan Talapia in foil packets. I split the cheese "sauce" between 6 talapia filets, which was about 100 calories of sauce per filet. I then weighed the filets to figure out how many calories were in each filet (4 oz. raw talapia= 100 calories.) I marked the combined calories on the outside of the foil packet before cooking so that I would know how many calories John and I were eating, regardless of what size filet we got.

    Weekly Calorie Deficit: 3020 calories
    Weekly Weigh-In: -2.4 lbs (4% of goal)
    Net Weight Loss: 5.2 lbs (9.5% goal)

    Weekly Insights: Working out with John has been great- he's been so careful of me not over-doing it, and because of that, I still feel good (sore, but good) after our workouts. He's also pushing me to develop my core strength to help protect myself as I venture into other workouts (once he gives the okay.) Not quite the same thing as a personal trainer, but I do get to make out with him whenever I want! Having him on-board with the calorie restriction is so awesome, too (even though he gets way more calories than I do each day.) I feel like the changes I am making are sustainable (more fruits/veggies, lean meats, whole grains, and alternative protiens like beans/rice.) I also think that writing everything down is really helping me be aware of my choices, in terms of not over-eating as well as making sure I am eating a variety of nutritious foods.

    Eating the candy bar each night is a mental thing for me... while I eat enough food that I no longer feel "hungry" except at meal times, feeling like I can indulge every night is really helping me feel like I am making lifestyle choices, not "dieting." And in light of the whole twinkie diet thing, I don't feel a bit bad about doing it. My doctor (hubs) says it's fine, and since I eat very low-fat foods the rest of my day, it is probably a good thing to throw a little more fat into my diet at bedtime so that I don't wake up hungry.

    I fully expect that this will get harder (not losing as much weight per week) once I get to the half way mark. I also, at some point, will probably cut back on breastfeeding (or at least start adding solid foods, which may decrease calorie utilization for breast milk.) So I want to stay on the wagon and work at it as much as I can now... and plan to increase my activity once my knee feels better (stupid bursitis.)

    Goals for next week:
    • Plan daily meals better to consisitently meet -500 cal./day goal.
    • Find better substitute for common calorie suckers (like a lower-calorie substitute for the creamer in my coffee.)
    • Maintain calcium intake with at least 3 servings of calcium-rich foods per day.
