Slow and Steady Wins the Race

UHi everybody – just a quick check in today! It might be goin’ slow, but the scale is on a downward trend! Today I lost another .8 of a pound, and while it’s not a whole pound, it’s close, so I’ll take it! I’ve been tracking on My Fitness Pal and reaaaally paying attention to portion sizes, and that seems to be helping. For example, this BLT on sourdough clocked in at 428 calories – notice the plates? Look familiar? 428 calories isn’t exactly low-cal, but for the richness of this sandwich and the yummy-ness factor, it works great for me.


So far I’m down 7.8 pounds and hoping to hit 10 by the end of the month. I need to remember to drink my water and also to amp it up in the physical activity department. I plan on buying some work clothes this weekend, so I wonder if I’ll be able to see or feel it anywhere.

That’s pretty much all I’ve got (I’m sleepy!) so I’ll write more to you on Monday. Have a fantastic Friday!

*update: this morning I lost another .2, so I officially hit 8 pounds lost! Yay!

  1. Great job with 8 lbs down!!!! And you are right… some foods are just rich enough to be worth their calories. The worst is when you eat 400 calories of something and then say, “ok what’s next.” That’s when you know it’s empty calories!
