Day 8 of the 100 Days of Weight Loss means that one week has gone by: 2 pounds down and a few percentage points lower on the body fat scale. Not too shabby.
Of course this is the easy part, the low-hanging fruit. Things are bound to get tough as time goes by but for now I am happy with the progress and thankful for the support. Fortunately I have no one around here who will snatch my plate away, give me a lecture about what I can or cannot eat, and so on.
To the contrary they are quite supportive – my wife is always the first one to hand out a compliment (I could follow her example) and once she figures out that I am on a ‘serious’ streak, she cuts down on the junk food purchases.
We had a really nice dinner tonight – Ribolita Soup - from 1000 Vegan recipes. It is a hearty Italian soup with lots of vegetables including cabbage, kale, carrots, red onion and potato. Hearty because of the inclusion of a couple of cans of Great Northern Beans. It was really excellent – very filling and I am sure not too calorific.
My diet has been much improved the last few days; keeping track on Fitday definitely helps.
