Lindora works! It really, really works!

An extremely encouraging visit to the Lindora clinic today.

Starting weight: 224.7
Today’s weight: 211.0    -13.7 lbs!

Lost a bunch of inches, too!
– 5.5” waist
– 1.5” bust
– 1” hips
– 2” thighs

Blood pressure: 110/78

I love this program! Such progress in only 3 weeks!!!

I am encouraged by my coworkers who are telling me that I’m having a really good attitude and I’m not being a big whiney-butt about the diet – like when I don’t get to eat celebratory cake. I’m happy that they’re noticing my mood. Cheating is simply not an option. I’m on the wagon. Why fret about it.  I’m amazed at the overall lack of cravings I’m feeling. I credit it to the ZonePerfect bars – one per day, in the afternoon.

Here’s my menu for the past week… (still eating Dannon Light & Fit yogurt; didn’t want to throw it away; need to go find the Ralph’s Carb Master and Fage Greek Yogurt) : )
