Happy Monday y'all! So I weighed in and I am down 7.2 lbs this week!! I went from 345 to 337.8. I am so excited!!!

Here are my before pics. Don't let my toes scare you, I desperately need a pedi lol..

I am so motivated y'all! I have so much energy now it is ridiculous. I used to feel so sluggish and worn down. I love it!

I look like I am preggo in my side pic but I don't care because it is only going down from here.

What are y'all doing for breakfast? I am fixin to make some eggs, ground turkey, and avocado.

I'm trying to think of healthy lunch ideas for the week but I'm at a loss. It needs to be easy or I just won't do it.
I usually just make enough supper to have leftovers for lunch. That usually works for me. I do that for all of us. Lunch is the one area where I slip so when I have something prepared it is a lot easier for me to stay on track.

Great job on the weightloss Ali!! That is fantastic.

I know back in March I was feeling so much better. I was sleeping better and less and had so much energy. Lately I have been so sluggish and miserable. I am looking forward to feeling better again.

I packed myself some raspberries and my avocados are still good at work so I will have one of those for lunch. I also have some sf jello in the fridge.

I plan to stop by the store tonight and pick up a chicken and maybe some veggies. I am thinking I am going to have a chicken salad for dinner.

Alli that is amazing, great job!!!!

I gained 1.4 this morning so I am at 216.3, I would like to say I am surprised but I'm not. I am feeling very motivated this week though and think we will all have wonderful weeks!! I have no clue what I am doing for breakfast haha, I am going to have some coffee and by the time I am done drinking coffee it will probably be lunch time. I got to sleep in today because I have comp time to use up since I am on call this weekend so not my typical morning haha.

That's what I am noticing now, I am able to sleep much better.

Make sure you are eating enough. Don't want to starve yourself. Might need more than an avocado for lunch. Mmm love me some avocado!! lol..

Chicken salad sounds good. I am still debating on what to do for dinner. I usually keep it light and easy on Mondays.

I think we will do great this week! I am going to make sure I keep my butt of the scale till Monday. I seriously get obsessed with the scale. Especially when I am losing like I am now.

Coffee sounds good but I don't think I have any creamer or anything. Generally don't drink it in warm weather. I usually go for iced coffee but staying away because of all the sugar. Any ideas how I can make it taste good without all the sugar? lol.. Eating the way I am now I see that sugar is definitely bad for me. I am kind of nervous to drink it like I did. Usually load it up with all kinds of good stuff!

Yes, I know I need to eat more I struggled with that before and I got feeling really sick and stopped losing weight. I think today will just have to be a light day since I am lacking on food. I have a few higher carb things in my desk if I am desperate. Oh and I guess I have a ton of nuts in the freezer at work.

I don't typically do breakfast. I like to eat about 10 so I usually have a snack at work. I like to have fruit with a protein/fat. So like an apple and peanut butter. Or today I will have raspberries and macadamia nuts.

Do you use My Fitness Pal? I usually try to get in at least 1200 calories. More if I workout or am more active that day. I think not eating enough can be just as bad as eating too much.

I am so glad I went grocery shopping yesterday. We are supposed to have storms most of the week!

I use to use it quite a bit. I always aimed for 1500-1700 on a low carb diet so I was getting a variety of different things. I probably won't use it much the next two weeks but once I am off for summer break I think I will definitely start back up again.

Alli these two creamer ideas look pretty good http://www.thebewitchinkitchen.com/p...-game-changer/ http://andreasoderberg.blogspot.com/...eamer.html?m=1 ....I use coffee mate sugar free italian swete cream. I usually don't like sugar free creamers but that one is really good! I am going to try to stay off the scale as well, I am guilty of being a daily weigher and I need to stop!

Krissie chicken salad does sound good! Yum. I second MFP to make sure you are getting enough calories.

I got an acorn squash in my bountiful basket this week and have never had acorn squash so I found a recipe that looks good just cut it into rings and cook it with sea salt and apparently it will taste like a combo of sweet potato fries and onion rings lol so I am going to have that and probably a chicken breast or a pork chop for supper.
