Week 1 Summary

I lost 1.4 last week! It doesn't show up in the summary report because I weighed in this morning. Exactly 30 pounds to go now. As you can see, I stayed mostly within my calorie targets, but ate more fats and less carbs than usual because I have been using the Flat Belly Diet plan, which emphasizes monounsaturated fatty acids. The reason I chose the diet was not the corny name, but the fact that it came up when I googled "menopause diet" and I like the foods it recommends. I do feel more satisfied than I did on a lower-fat diet plan. It is a Mediterranean-style diet and lines up well with my food preferences. I did a nice variety of exercise last week too. I'm feeling good -- this plan is something I don't mind sticking with long-term.
