I DID IT! I LOST TEN POUNDS!
It was hard. It was really really hard. REALLY HARD! A tub of potato salad that was left over from the band pool party tortured me aaaallll week! I ate some every damn day too. I counted the points, but still. NO one needs to eat potato salad every day! On Thursday, before my weigh in, I tried to throw it away. I tried. I didn’t. I finished it instead. 😦 Bad me!! I couldn’t even blame it on the Easter Bunny this time.
But I did it and I gave myself a nice little reward – I bought new sneaks for zumba class and downloaded some new walking music. 🙂 Okay, maybe they weren’t all for 10 lbs, but I got them this week too, so it’s kinda relevant.
In any case, I can see 145 just over the horizon….GO ME!!
(edited to add: this is my 69th post! I had a special one planned, but now I’ve gone and blown it! lmao!)
Down 7 lbs!
I am so excited! Clothes are starting to fit a little better and I can feel a little difference.
I decided to join a challenge group on Weight Watchers Online to lose 25 lbs by Christmas. I just realized that doesn’t include the 7 I already lost. This is gonna be tough! LOL
The keys have been to eat more fruit/veggies, drink lots of water, cut out soda, cut down on portion size at home, started packing lunches with frozen entrees so I can determine exactly how many points I want to have at that meal, and stocking my desk with better snack options than hitting 7-Eleven for a soda and candy bar.
That may seem like a lot of changes, but really it’s not so hard. It does take a lot of thinking and planning though.
Next step is to increase my activity. I enjoyed zumba, but want to start walking regularly too.
I can do this!
Managed to travel while still maintaining my diet. Yay, me! Dad made a delicious dinner of pork fajitas with lots of veggies (recipe later…gotta con it out of Dad…haha). Very few points. Three pounds lost so far and I haven’t weighed in yet today. I’m stoked! Can’t wait to start zumba next week!
The trick tonight will be going to the ballpark tomorrow night for a Washington Wild Things game without eating a week’s worth of fattening crap! I must have at least one beer though. It’s not a ball game without beer.
