Chef on a Diet: First Week’s Weigh-In

I lost 3 lbs. my first week! Not enough for anyone to notice, of course, but I’m happy those 3 lbs. are gone. Actually, most dietitians recommend losing no more than 2-3 lbs. a week for healthy dieting, so I am right on. My goal moving forward is to lose 2 lbs. a week.

All things considered, last week was easier than I thought it would be. The key for me is planning my day so that I know how many times I will need to eat and when. I have 3 meals a day and either 2 or 3 snacks depending on how long my day is. I have not been hungry at all.

The hard part is balancing the fun factor on the weekend. In addition to the easy access winery & brewery I’ve mentioned earlier, right around the corner we have the Old Place, a one-of-a-kind eatery and neighborhood clubhouse. We are “expected” to show up at least once during the weekend. Friday night we left after just one drink, and now I don’t know if we’ll be welcomed back;)
