Next steps

Last week, the nutritionist recommended that I start a meal plan that incorporates two protein shakes a day (breakfast/lunch), and a maximum of 2000 calories a day.

I had to order some more protein powder, and that arrived yesterday, so tomorrow I start that plan. I figured while the ELB is out of town for the next week, it would be the best time to do this since I know I get a little (lot) bitchy.

So here's to getting back on track, losing weight and being healthy. I want to fit back into my previously purchased clothes that I wore two winters ago and not have to buy more things that fit.

(baby) steps in the right direction

Today, I met with the nutritionist at my new Lapband doctor's office.

She had some good advice and we talked about the basics: making the choice of protein first, no drinking with meals, healthy choices, less white bread carbs, etc. I follow up in a month for progress. She gave me a calorie range to work for, and encouraged me to get back to tracking my food--which I am going to do.

I have lost weight recently--about 7lbs since May 16--and I haven't really been trying, so I think that's a good sign.

I just bought a new Fitbit Charge2 to replace my old Flex that has stopped working so great. I got two new shaker jars for mixing shakes, and I found out that even though I'm lactose intolerant, I can still do whey protein isolate, which means I can go back to using Unjury. I also bought some Chike protein coffee, which I tried this morning and I liked it pretty well. 

I'm getting into the right mindset. I feel my motivation showing up in places. Baby steps. Diet first then I can work on getting exercise back.
