Week 2 went by so quickly! I practiced being mindful of what I eat, taking my time to enjoy each and every bite, and making a point to reflect and think on things each day. I made sure I drank all my water each day, and ate all five fuelings each day. I started mixing up when I eat my lean and green, and sometimes I eat it during the early afternoon instead of the evening because it works better with my schedule, and I like that timing a lot.
The OPTAVIA Community is really helpful. I'm in a group on Facebook for our team and even though I'm not very active (ok, not active at all), I still gain from reading what other people post and share.
I like the mental work of this program too. It's forcing me to recognize food as fuel, a necessity to keep going, and not something to avoid (and then binge).
So here's my Week 2 details from my weigh in:
I lost 2.9 pounds this week!
That brings my total in two weeks - just 14 days - on Optavia to -14.6 pounds. Wowza.
Average weight loss on the Optimal Weight 5&1 Plan is 12 pounds. Clients are in weight loss, on average, for 12 weeks.
