I got an award! Allan's challenge is awesome. He sends uplifting and/or friendly reminder emails daily in this challenge. We're sending him our weights on Sundays and he's counting all the calories lost. I think his goal is for all in the challenge to lose 1/2 ton by the first of the year. That is staggering to me and makes me motivated to do well!
His logic is simple - Eat less, drink lots of water. It's not rocket science. He simply woke up one day from his own denial with obesity and started doing something about it. Now, he's passing his self acquired knowledge along to others who are willing to listen. This Sunday, 8 of the participants lost 10 lbs. or more for the first 12 days. He sent an very nice award to us for our blogs. At first I was embarrassed. I don't get things from people too often so I was touched for the recognition. While this is NOT a contest, I am proud to be one of the 8 women who have "rocked the scale". I've been keeping the 1200 calorie meal plan as accurately as possible and I've been drinking more water per day than ever!
Egg, ham and cheese omelet = 220
Salad = 120
Pumpkin Pasta = 450
1 cup Chickpea Chicken soup = 230
Popcorn = 100
Total - 1120 calories
Plenty of water
