Optavia Week 4 - WEIGH IN 11/9/20

Week 4 was probably the most difficult week I've had yet, and it's because I spent the weekend out of town with a group of friends, where we barely leave the rental house and basically eat and drink all weekend. However, this time I packed my fuelings, prepped my own meals (okay, honestly I would have been doing that anyway because I was doing the food elimination and not eating dairy, gluten, meat, etc.). I didn't have any alcohol, although I could have had up to two shots of clear liquor each day and still stayed on the plan technically - and I would have gone with vodka and lime Bubly with a squirt of fresh lime. I still had an absolute blast even not drinking, I don't think anyone was the wiser (haha, I was pretty secretive that I wasn't drinking), and I drank the lime Bubly (sans vodka) in my drink cup, so I could alternate that with regular water. 

Other than that though, my week was great! I feel so amazing. I decided I want to share Optavia with my friends and became a coach (more on that in another post). I even have my first client! I am still in awe over how good I feel, and how great I am sleeping at night. 

Some of the things I worked on this week - the mental work is necessary for my success. 

  1. Eating a larger variety of fuelings. I have a lot that I tend to skip over and put off eating until another time, so I'm being more aware of rotating through them all. 
  2. Documenting everything in my app and my journal - food and water. I like to have it written down so I can go back and reference it if needed.
  3. Going to bed when I should and not staying up reading too late.

So here's my Week 4 details from my weigh in:

I lost 1.7 pounds this week! 

That brings my total in three weeks - just 28 days - on Optavia to -20.5 pounds. AMAZING. I am SO proud of myself and I want to shout it from the rooftops how easy and foolproof this program is. 

Average weight loss on the Optimal Weight 5&1 Plan is 12 pounds. Clients are in weight loss, on average, for 12 weeks.

Four weeks of HEALTHY - I choose ME

 Today is the end of my first four weeks of taking control of my health, making conscious HEALTHY choices. I have traveled twice in those four weeks - once overnight with my family, and this past weekend with friends for an annual getaway. Usually on trips like that, it's easy to snack and drink all weekend. Three years ago I went on our weekend getaway with friends after spending the previous month doing Whole 30, losing 30 pounds, and then completely went crazy that getaway weekend with food and drinks. 

This time, I chose to stick with this program that’s helped me lose 20.5 pounds in 4 weeks, eat the food I know makes me feel good, and enjoy my time with my friends. I wasn't hungry or even tempted by the chips, dips, sweets, or sugary drinks, and most importantly, I felt good choosing ME. I had just as much fun this weekend as any other trip, and the motivation of how well I feel, how great I am sleeping, and how much energy I have without that afternoon slump keeps me going. Losing more than 20 pounds in four weeks is an added benefit!!!

I feel so amazing, and I am so happy with this program, I want to shout this from the rooftops. If you are looking to feel better, sleep better, and GET THE WEIGHT OFF, I would love to coach you on the path I'm following, and help you create your own path to a healthier you!
