Halfway done! The 2-month mark of this journey has seen ups and downs, but mostly downs, on the scale that is!
Week 7: Down 1.2 pounds to 265.8 and down a quarter inch to 46" on the navel measurement.
Week 8: Down 1.6 pounds to 264.2, but maintained the 46" navel measurement.
Month two round up, down a total of 22.4 pounds and 3.75".
Pizza wise, I was finally able to make my mashed potatoes pie! An olive oil and minced garlic base, I spread the mashed potatoes on after, added some mozzarella, then fresh-cut corn right off the cob. Some shredded black forest ham, and a little more mozzarella, then some little chunks of the potatoes on the top to get crispy, like twice baked potatoes. Bake at 450 for about 5-7 minutes, then about a minute before finished, add shredded cheddar, finish baking, then add fresh green onion and drizzle with sour cream. Tastes so good you'll plotz!
Two difficult weeks yielded more loss and another great milestone. I was finally able to fit in the chef coat that is a size smaller than my current one…and I can breathe! With this achievement I am convinced I can get close to my goal of losing 40 pounds by May 22, but whatever the end result, I will be satisfied. I am bettering my health and self esteem through just pizza. That in itself is an achievement to be proud of.
