Week 1

My morning weigh-in gave me a big boost today! 162.5!

I have been on this diet since Monday and already lost the 2 lbs for the week minimum that I want, all the while fighting off a cold. I made it to the gym 2 times and have one more workout, I am targeting Saturday for that.

Yesterday was hard because I got genuinely hungry before lunch and before dinner.

Saturday I start Phase 2 of the diet plan, this one is 6 days long and incorporates more protein supplements and added in a mid-morning snack which I have been doing anyway by taking a breakfast item and moving it to mid-morning.

I want to purchase a couple fish fillets, any recommendations on kinds of fish/brands? I could eat pretty much any fish, although I like salmon the best. But only if its fresh wild... and cooked up by a great chef!

I'm supposed to alternate Fish, Chicken and Turkey for my dinner meal.

Mel, how is week one going?

Anyone else want to join us in our quest?

My Goal: Lose 23 lbs by March 1st 2007. I would like to maintain a weight between 140 and 150 after that.

So everyone else can know..

So far I've tried Tallopia fish. Its good enough, almost no taste at all!

Brandon found a tip to make fish less fishy, soak it for about 10 min in saltwater/brine. Then riense it off really well. The salt water pulls out the fishy.. somehow.

Since I've been on maternity leave, I've been watching a show called Take Home Chef. He makes TONS of fish. He always buys it fresh and he seems to steam it a lot. I don't know if that helps.
