My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Getting MORE Serious About Weight Loss

Hello everyone. Meal planning is a great way to organize your meals for the week ahead. You also save time and money in the supermarket! And of course, planning ahead helps you stick to your goals! Click here for my guide to meal planning.

I hope you have all had a wonderful week and weekend. I’m pleased to say I’ve lost another pound! Since February 3rd, I’ve now lost 3 lbs.

But, if I want to lose more weight (and I do) I realize that I now have to get ever more serious about it. I devoured a couple of ice creams and chocolate bar over the weekend 😳 and I realized that I just have to stop doing that. So to the grocery store I went, and I bought grapes, apples and yogurt to have instead of ice cream and chocolate bars, and carrots, cauliflower and celery and a light ranch dressing to dip them in, instead of popcorn and chips. 😊

I’ve been keeping up with drinking 2 litres of water a day and am feeling really great. I added yoga and dance to this and this has made me feel really good about myself, plus my muscles feel much more flexible now which means no more neck pain and headaches.

I’m all smoothied out for now, so I chose to have variations of eggs this week and salads if I’m hungry later on.

Here’s this week’s menu with a view to more weight loss:
