Week one... Victory is Mine!

Week one... Victory is Mine!

So after much anticipation, my week one results are in. But first I want to take a moment to talk about the food. 

It was awesome! 

Now I know a lot of people will feel like I'm only saying that because it's my wife's food and I guess there's a good argument to be made for that. I've always loved her food. Only now I'm loving her food AND I'm losing weight! I was honestly expecting a test of my willpower, after all... I am a cookie monster. But the high level of protein in the meals kept me feeling full all the time and I actually found myself looking forward to my next meal or snack. You'll notice below that I sometimes have two items in one meal. That's only because MyFitnessPal won't let me add a fourth meal, which is what I did. Instead of eating Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner/Snack, I ate Breakfast/Lunch/Mid-Afternoon Meal/Dinner/Snack. The result was that I felt full, content, and happy.

I won't kid you though, I had some pretty serious sugar cravings the first couple days. But they died off quickly and didn't really cross my mind after that. I even went to a children's birthday party on Sunday and got through it without issue. Sure, I was tempted... but I noticed pretty quickly that it was entirely mental. I wasn't really physically craving the food. I had also eaten right before we left for the party. So a bottle of water got me through the afternoon!

Now let's get into the details. Here is my food diary for the week:

My starting weight was 226lbs, and my weight as of this morning at 7:30AM is...

223.1 lbs!

That's a 2.9 lb loss in 7 days with ZERO other changes in my lifestyle. The only thing I did was switch to MImi's Macros for my meals and snacks. 

Stay tuned because I'm NOT DONE!!! This was only week one of a twelve week journey.
