Six Week Weight Loss Challenge week 1 and 2

You’re here because you want to know about the 6 week challenge I’m doing and how I already lost 7 pounds in two weeks. My start weight was 146.6 and week two I am at 139.6. The challenge is called P2P, but if you google 20 pound weight loss challenge you will find plenty to choose from. They are all similar. You put in money, mine was $497 and if you lose 20 pounds in 6 weeks you get the money back. They equip you with a meal plan and give you access to their workout centers.

Pros- What I like about the challenge is that the workouts are in group settings with a trainer. The accountability with weekly weigh ins and of course the motivation to look good and get your money back.

Cons- It’s pretty extreme for anyone who’s not accustomed to working out or eating healthy. The meal plan is quite boring and requires you to eat almost the same thing for 6 weeks. They also do an orientation where they encourage you to buy a bundle package proteins powders, supplements etc…

I know my weaknesses and I know my strengths. I knew I needed help and motivation working out, but I also knew I didn’t need the meal plan. I decided to do my own meal plan of 1200 calories a day. Basically putting my body in a calorie deficit.  The goal was to feel not hungry after eating, but not really satisfied or full. I’m 5’3 so 1200 calories is sustainable for my height. I am not nutritionist, dietician or doctors. I would suggest consulting a professional before starting any diet. Again, this is what I’m doing for myself. I also eliminated flour and processed sugars because those foods were more dense in calories. I tracked my daily meals in Myfitnesspal and below is my first week. Week two is very similar to week one. You can see there are days I’m pretty flexible with my diet as long as I stayed around 1200 calories a day. I also worked out 3 days on 1 day off. I will load my week total of meals and my weigh in every Saturday for the remaining of my challenge.
