Wheat Belly: Two Weeks In

We have three more weeks until Jesse returns to the doctor for bloodwork. We'll reassess if this way of eating is permanent or not when we get his results back.

Jesse thought this week was easier. I thought this week was significantly harder. I've struggled a lot with emotional, boredom, habitual eating.

Quick notes from the week:

Jesse: bicycle twice, jogged once, weightlifted twice
Bonnie: Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred workout video 4x, neighborhood walk w/ stroller twice

Favorite Meal:
Jesse: hamburgers (sans bun) with sweet potato fries
Bonnie: maple-pecan chicken with salad

Favorite Food Modification:
Jesse: adding coconut oil to coffee (Bulletproof Coffee)
Bonnie: experimenting with Paleo desserts

Greatest Food Challenge This Week:
Jesse: a coworker brought cake and frappuccino specifically for Jesse
Bonnie: struggling to eat when hungry vs bored, stressed, or in social settings

Jesse: more energy this week, no cravings, lost 4 lbs
Bonnie: no longer craving sweets (unless it is directly in front of me), lost 4 lbs

Jesse: marshmallows roasted over fire pit
Bonnie: licked one dollop of cream cheese icing

Social Eating Survival Skills:
Church breakfast potluck-brought fruit salad, ate fruit and potato/egg/cheese casserole
Book Club: brought cantaloupe, easily avoided cookies, chips, beer, dips
Play Date: made and ate taco dip (beans, salsa, sour cream, cheese, chicken) without chips, avoided quesadilla and chocolate pie

Total Weight Loss:
Jesse: down 14 lbs
Bonnie: down 14 lbs
