This week was much better than last, because I lost 1.6 pounds! Wooooohoooo! I was feeling really discouraged over last week’s lackluster loss (.2 – remember? pssssh), but yesterday made me feel better about things. (And I’ll be honest, if not a tiny bit disappointed as I reminisced over the old school fiber-riffic Weight Watchers plan that could help you shed 3-4 pounds a week at first)
I still had some indulgences this week that made me grateful for a nice loss – I had french fries one night, Thai food for lunch one day, and a slice of birthday cake. The fact that those types of food CAN fit into a weight loss plan make me feel good. (Sorry – I don’t buy the crock of crap about “it’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle”. It will be a lifestyle for me when I’m not wanting to steal candy out of the hands of children. Most people don’t track everything they eat for the sake of it being a “life style”.)
My total weight loss after three weeks is 3.8 pounds. This is a good, steady loss and hopefully one that will not be coming back. This week I vow to keep tracking, make good choices about late night snacking, and keep going to the gym. This weekend will be a bit of a challenge as it’s my one year wedding anniversary, and to me, celebration always entails delicious food. I’ll have to try and enjoy the deliciousness without stuffing my face. It’d be awesome if I could hit five pounds down next week…. Let’s see what I can do! Have a great week!
