Holy Crap I'm Already Down 2.8 Pounds

It is so counter intuitive to eat more to loose weight. But it seems to be working. I was 127.8 on Sunday and weighed 125 this morning. Woo Hoo. Here's what today looked like. You'll notice a pattern. I'm a terrible creature of habit.

Breakfast:
1/2 cups Protein Plus Special K (2 pts.)
1 cup FF milk (2 pts.)
1/2 banana (1 pt.) = 5 pts.

Lunch:
1 cup Campbell's Select Chicken Tortilla soup (2 pts)
1 apple (2 pts.)
1 wedge WW cheese (1 pt)
Handful of carrots (0 pts) = 5 pts.

Snack:
1 granola bar w/ protein (2 pts.) = 2 pts.

Dinner:
Salad w/ light balsamic vinegar and olive oil (0 pts)
1 cup Campbell's light Santa Fe Chicken soup (0 pts.)
4 oz. chicken with light bbq (3 pts)
1 bun (2 pts.)
1 cup corn (2 pts.) = 7 pts.

Dessert:
1 bag Jolly Time 94% FF popcorn (1 pt.)
2 sticks Hershey's chocolate sticks (2 pts.) = 3 pts.

Daily total- 22 points
Estimated calories- 1, 400

Workout:
30 minutes yoga stretching Wii Fit (1 activity point)

Great news!! Hopefully you don't get burned out on your repetitive eating. I usually eat the same things all the time for breakfast and lunch, and every once in a while I just have to mix it up. Keep it up!

Great job! it's so funny how the body works. Eat nothing one week -gain 2 lbs. Eat a ton the next - lose 2 lbs. Unpredictable, huh?
Feels so good to knock that weight off!
WOOT WOOT!
