It finally came to me.
My plan allows for frozen meals 5 times a week.
Frozen meals are easy.
I am a lazy person.
So, I’ve been having Lean Cuisine meals 5 times a week at lunch time since last December.
I have chosen only meals that fall within the guidelines of my plan (LA Weight Loss):
less than 40 g carbs
at least 14 g protein
less than 10 g fat
and less than 750 g sodium
The last time I was in at the center (2 ½ weeks ago) (I know, I am supposed to be in 3 times a week, and I was at first, because we lived in the city at the time. Now, the closest center is 1 hour away – I only go in every couple weeks) Anyway, the last time I was at the center, we talked about my frustration with being stuck on the same “numbers” for so long. The counselor recommended that I use the frozen meals only twice a week, at most because of the sodium.
After 2 weeks of no frozen meals, even with no exercise to speak of, I lost more than ½ of what I’d lost all summer!
Just another example of how my laziness has gotten me in trouble.
And you know? I haven’t even missed them! I’ve been having leftovers or salad for lunches – and enjoying my own cooking much more than the frozen stuff.
Oh, and I moved my ticker today.
