Official weigh-in this morning was 223 lbs. Waist measurement is 46.5 in. around belly button and love handles. The first day went pretty well food-wise:
B- 4 eggs
L- Spinach salad with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and chicken breast
S- Raw pumpkin seeds
D- Crock-pot chicken cacciatore (chicken, bell pepper, onion, garlic, tomatoes, tomato sauce)
I'm worried about the expense of eating organic, grass-fed, lots of proteins, etc. after the shopping trip today. I'm assuming I'll get either better at shopping or have to cut back on the budget elsewhere. As far as ease of sticking to diet, I was very satisfied today.
