Wednesday diet report

We've had more successful weight-loss weeks.  I do feel sorry for Cliff, since he showed a two-pound loss Monday.  But Mondays don't count.  So, he gained one pound, according to the evil scales today.  His blood pressure readings are staying pretty much the same:  132/78.

I have lost one whole pound in two weeks, but now that I'm in all of my size 12 jeans, I don't care how slowly the weight comes off... just so it continues to drop until I'm below 150.

We eat two meals from Subway every Tuesday because of their Tuesday special.  We get one 12-inch meatball sub and split that for lunch; and we buy a 12-inch cold-cut combo and divide that for our supper.  The cost?  $6 feeds both of us two meals!  And the calories are within our diet budget.

Check out the subway website HERE.  One of the few fast-food places that's proud to post their nutrition information on their website.

Love your outlook! I agree, I don't worry about losing 5 or 10 lbs a WEEK, if I can lose at least 1 a week I'm happy!!!;0)
I have a loooong way to go, but that's ok...took me a long time to get here!
I like Subway on Tues very now & then too. Usually get the Chicken, eat half & save the other half for the next day!
Take care sweetie.
Blessings & hugs,
SUGAR

One of the more difficult things to remember while dieting is that it took a while to gain it, it's going to take a while to lose it.  You know it, you've said it yourself and the slow loss is the best way.  Not a bad deal at all for two meals!  We don't eat at Subway often, but we do enjoy their sandwhiches.  Good work you two!

Now, I'm dreaming of meatball heroes (in NY, they are called hero sandwiches). : )

I admire your persistence with sticking with it! WTG. Wonder if Cliff shows a gain after the Subway sandwiches if there is more salt in them.

I usually pick subway when my kids want McD's or Burger King.  Good food, and a lot less calories.

I like Subway and we have one right down the street. You two are doing well. If you lose it slow you will be more likely to keep it off I think. Paula

I love Subway! They opened on in Walmart here. On Sunday they have 2 footlongs for $8.

Love Subway!  

At least you both keep going down and not up!  That's the important thing, no matter how slow the going might be!
