Really? 211.0?

I've been losing more weight than I expected the last two week. This morning, the highest number I got on the scale was 211.0, which puts me down a total of 22.6 pounds. That's after seven weeks on the diet. That seems like an awful lot.

Come to think of it, that's four pounds since last week, assuming the number I picked for last week was accurate. And last week I was down 3.6 pounds from the week before. That seems like an awful lot. In fact, it seems like too much. I haven't changed my diet from the previous weeks, so I don't know why my weight loss would be accelerating.

Speaking of my eating habits, I figured this week would be a good time to talk about them. Diet or not, I tend to eat pretty much the same thing every day on week-days. This is mostly because I bring my breakfast and lunch to work with me every day. This is because 1) it's cheaper than eating out and 2) there aren't any good restaurants in the town where I work.

The recommended breakfast on the F-Factor diet is a high-fiber cereal and yogurt. I eat a half-cup or Fiber One and a container of Dannon Crave Control yogurt. It's actually surprisingly filling for a relatively small volume of food. I also have my coffee, but since the diet recommends limiting yourself to a single caffeinated beverage a day, I've had to switch to decaf. Well, less-than-half-caff, actually. This was actually quite the change, as I'm a pretty heavy coffee drinker. In fact, I'm actually drinking more of it now, since having too much decaf doesn't make me jittery.

For lunch, I've been having a turkey sandwich on two slices of that Weight-Watchers bread I mentioned last time, accompanied by a serving of carrot sticks and a piece of string cheese.

My afternoon snack is pretty much a repeat of lunch, with some deli-sliced ham and Laughing Cow brand spreadable cheese on some bran crispbread and another string cheese. Depending on when dinner is, I may supplement this with some veggies or another couple of crackers after I get home.

Dinner is the only part that I usually vary. We normally have a large spinach salad to start and finish with our serving of fresh fruit. I like raspberries for this - with a bit of the diet Cool-Whip added, they really feels like dessert. For the main course, it's some kind of meat and a side of rice, veggies, or whatever we have room for on our carb allowance.
