Menu Plan 2/13/2012 - 2/17/2012

So, after 3 full weeks, I have released a total of 10.6 pounds, 1.6 of them being last week.  I know it is not the staggering amount some people experience, but I will take it!  Why?  Here's why:
  1. The slower you lose it, the easier it will be to maintain
  2. When you lose a bunch of weight quickly, your skin cannot keep up to shrink down with it.
  3. When you lose it slower, I think it puts you into a better frame of mind.  Your expectations aren't so high that when you don't see that big number in a week, you think it stops working, which can discourage you from working it.
  4. I am eating REAL, PURE food.  Plain and simple, I am eating cleaner and healthier than I have in a long time.  I am not eating artificial junk for the sake of saving some calories. 
  5. Tortoise and the Hare baby!  Slow and steady wins the race...I will take the Tortoise anyday!  Now, I am not saying those who have lost huge numbers are going to fail, not maintain, or not finish;  I am simply saying this is why it works for me.

Onto my menu for the week:

Eastern Carolina BBQ, Veggie Heavy Pasta Salad

Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs, TJ 3 Cheese Pasta Pomodoro Sauce,  1/2 serving Pasta, Grain-Free Garlic Bread, Ceasar Salad

Almond Crusted Chicken with Lemon Cream Sauce, Steamed Broccoli

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan, Roasted Cauliflower, Spinach Salad

Make your own pizza


  1. Slow and Steady does win the race! You are doing great:) Your menus always sound yummy and well thought out.

  2. Again -- I want to eat at your house - YUM.
    I am the tortoise and look at me I won. Slow is the way to go. Ha-ha look at me I am rhyming. Have a great day :-)

  3. Looks awesome! I agree that slow is good. Much better to have lasting results than up/down/up/down..

  4. That is my motto too! Slow and Steady DOES win with weight loss. Yea for you!

  5. I think your weight loss is great. It's taken mea year to do that! But I had many slip ups along the way. Your menu looks great too. There's no stopping you!!! Sending hugs to you from me!


I would love to hear from you! Please leave any thoughts or questions you have and I will get back with you as soon as I can.
