Diet Plan and Weight Watching-Week 4 and 5 update

I started my Diet from Dec 2015 , the first two weeks  were to balance my food intake and adapting my habits to cooking/eating more healthy food. The initial two weeks were no weight loss and no weight gain weeks.The last two weeks I had lost 2 pounds in total, It’s not much but it is great feeling to see the scale meter coming down rather than going up as was the case from past few months.

The last two days of Dec and first two days of January, I couldn’t help myself to stop cooking and eating outside 😀 Holiday time . I ate and slept and ate again, went shopping  and dining . Although I tried to check the calories limitation not to exceed the level of 1800 cal, at which I do not gain any weight according to my BMI . I enjoyed my break from diet and also my  favorite food.

    Awesome! 2 pounds is perfect! I figure during the holidays we had to indulge a bit or it wouldn’t be the holidays. Great job you are doing. Do you like tea? That might be something that will help keep you full and hydrated too. I am so glad you are plugging along. ❤
