Weight loss

It has been a while since I talked about my weight loss journey... the good news is that I haven't really strayed from the 162 that I was at back in Jan. However my goal of reaching 152 by Allie's birthday was obviously not met.

So here is my plan of attack... first I'm going to start back on using the Slim fast Online diary and aim to keep an average of about 1500 Calories a day. This is actually not too horrible when I keep to foods high in fiber and other things that fill me up for the least amout of cals. Yesterday went really well and I ate quite nice I must say. Just to give you an idea of what my 1500 calorie looked like here is my meal info from slimfast:

Cinnamon Toast Crunch 3/4 cup with 1/2 cup milk x 1 1/2

Snack #1
Grapes, fresh: 1 cup
Chips Deluxe 100 Calorie

Lettuce: romaine, chopped, 1 cup x 1 1/2
Meijer Chicken breast Frozen Brown Bag
Northern Italian Lowfat dressing 2 tbsp

Snack #2
Chiquita Banana
Fiber One Oats & Chocolate Bar

Mayonnaise: lo fat, 1 tsp x 3
Subway Turkey wheat w/ Lettu, Tomat, & Amer Cheese x 1 1/4
Lays Kettle Cooked Reduced Fat ~18 chips x 1/2
Munchies Snack Mix 3/4 cup x 1/2

Snack #3
Orville Redenbacher Smart Pop Butter Half Bag

And here are the total Stats for the day:
Actual 1,550 Target 1500
Calories from Fat
Actual 340 Target 280 - 530
Total Fat
Actual 37 g Target 31 - 58g
Saturated Fat
Actual 7 g Target <= 17g
Actual 115 mg Target < 300mg
Actual 2,670 mg Target < 2400mg
Total Carbohydrate
Actual 232 g Target 169 - 244g
Dietary Fiber
Actual 30 g Target >= 25g
Actual 82 g Target * ??? not sure what that means??
Actual 70 g Target 38 - 131g
Vitamin C
Actual 70% Target 100%
Actual 60% Target 100%
Actual 190% Target 100%
Actual 80oz Target >= 64 oz

Now part two is to spend at least 45 mins doing work around the house and getting out for a 30 min walk when ever the weather permits each day. I hope that once again I see great sucess with this and then maintain.
