It's On

Ok, here I am. I am 50 years old, I am 5' 7"tall, I weigh in at 175 pounds. I would like to weigh 135 pounds. So my goal is to lose 40 pounds. Of my many purchases of diet plans, I plan to use SLIM IN 6. I’m choosing this plan because it promises that I’ll get the most results in only six weeks. So for the next six weeks I will be following this exercise plan, but using my own diet plan, which will be a low-fat low-carb diet.

I will eat the same meal from day to day for one week, which will start on Friday and end on Thursday. I have not checked with my doctor or a nutritionist, I will be choosing the foods that I like, because I think that I’ll be happier if I do. I will exercise Monday - Friday at 8:am every morning then start my first meal.

Week 1
My breakfast each day
1pkg instant oatmeal
1 strip of bacon
1 cup of milk
½ cup of grapes
Mid morning snack
1 apple
8 oz or more water
My lunch each day will be
2 slices of Sarah Lee Hearty & Delicious
100% whole wheat bread with honey
2 slices of tomato
2 leaves of lettuce
2 slices of turkey lunch meat
1 tablespoon of regular mayo
1 tablespoon of mustard
Made into a sandwich
1 half grapefruit
8 oz or more of water
Before dinner snack
1 apple
8 oz or more water
My dinner each day will be
3 oz of skinless, boneless, chicken breast
1 cup of green beans
Lettuce and Tomato as much as I want, made into a salad with
2 tablespoons of lemon juice with garlic powder and black pepper
½ cup of low fat cottage cheese
2 peach slices in light syrup
16 oz of green tea with lemon, and 2 packets of equal
Bedtime Snack
½ cup of grapes
8 oz or more water
I'm going to try to stick strictly to this plan, maybe if I get crazy and want something sweet I'll eat some of those baby carrots or chew a piece of sugarless gum. A big thank you to all my friends that will be cheering me on and offering prays and encouragement.

Oh and this has nothing to do with the diet, I know you were probably wondering what that greenery was hanging down. I didn't notice it until after the pictures were taken but, now I don't have anyone here to re-take them so, this is how its suppose to be. I hope you all will have wonderful times today. Deb
