Week Five Weigh-In

This week I had a few challenges... one of which was another girl's night out Friday night at Red Lobster (our favourite restaurant)! So with the yummy food suggestions from stuporstar, I made some different food choices at the restaurant which led me to an equally successful weigh in this week. The trouble with eating out the night before a weigh in (eating a big meal, usually a larger meal, and usually a late meal) is that you still have a lot of it in your stomach at weigh in time. But I still had a loss!

It would be awesome to have a really good week next week so I could reach my first ten pounds :)

This week's loss: 0.8 lbs
Total loss: 8.4 lbs

FYI, ounce for ounce seafood will slim you quicker than an all vegetbale diet. There is very little fat in seafood, what is there is good for you. Also, seafood and fish raise the bodies metabolism.

When was the last time you saw an overweight Japanese person? You rarely do. The staple of their diets is fish and seafood.

Actually, the main reason you rarely see an overweight Japanese person is the portion sizes. North Americans tends to have massive and unrealistic portion sizes that are a huge contribution to the obesity problem we have here!

I agree that westerners have to fill those plates to the brim, and Japanese people eat smaller portions.

However, Japanese people tend to east 6 or 7 times a day. So, in effect they really aren't eating so much less than us. ;)

There are a lot of doctors today who support fish and seafood as a staple for a strong healthy diet. You never have to cut the "fat" off of fish or shrimp. The only time they get fatty is when you deep fry them and soak them in butter.

If you like sushi, you can lose weight faster than any other method. Seriously. My mom loves sushi, and she took a couple classes to learn to prepare it. She was about 40 pounds overweight, ended up losing 45 to be right where she wanted. It took her about four months. She isn't able to really excercise, so she walked about a half mile each day.

She ate five portions of sushi or shrimp each day and walked.

It won't work for everyone, like any diet, but fish diets are the most successful in the world, according the the American Medical Association.

But anyway. I am glad your plan is working. Good to know you can still enjoy yourself and come in under par. =)

So what did you go with this time? I never thought I would be as hooked on broccoli as I am the Red Lobster broccoli...*sigh*

Ok, well this sounds like a lot (and it is), but I didn't want to feel deprived or like I missed out on my RL experience :P As it was, I didn't go over on my points (I used a ton of flex points but still stayed under my weekly alotment).

An appetizer - there were three of us, we each ordered one, and then split them.
The new Spicey Asian Garlic Jumbo Shrimp (jumbo garlic shrimp skewers served with spicey sauce, and broccoli). I got the tossed salad with house vinegrette instead of my usual Caesar salad, and I got extra broccoli as my side, instead of rice or stuffed potato.
Then I got a 1/2 lb crab on the side with 1/8c butter. This is a massive improvement to my usual 1.5 lbs crab with unlimited butter.
1/3 of a chocolate wave for desert.

For the first time I left not feeling so full that I felt ill, but I felt like I still got to eat everything I wanted :)
