I’m not gonna lie. I truly expected a gain this week. I was bad. Went out to dinner with a friend and had drinks. And I didn’t stick to wine, which is at least a better choice. Oh no, chocolate martini and Bailey’s on the rocks. Plus then I had another bad day.
Somehow, though, I still managed to eek out a tiny .2 loss. I will take it. At least it is still going in the right direction. Did I mention I moved down a size in jeans? That means more to me than the scale.
Onward and downward.
On another note, I’m still fighting the flu. This has really knocked me on my butt. I have been in bed since Friday afternoon. But decided to try and go to work. I lasted until 2:30. Then I came home. And now tonight I’m just all done in.
I’m starting to like my Monday posts the most. I lost another .6 pounds this week. In three weeks I’ve lost 7.8 pounds. I’m thrilled.
I’ve been eating at home instead of going out all the time. And finding low point foods that will fill me up. I’m happy with my progress so far.
Ideally I would lose another 38 pounds (at least 33 more). I just keep thinking about all those clothes I have for summer that I could wear.
Onward and downward.
I have decided that Mondays will be my day to report on my weight loss. Hopefully, I will still be thankful every week.
I have known I needed to do something – life has been stressful this past year and I have compensated with food. So the 25 pounds I needed to lose last year turned into 40 pounds this year. Several years ago I lost 65 pounds on Weight Watchers – and I looked fine 🙂 Last Monday I started back on Weight Watchers (I’m using a really old plan that worked well for me before).
I also have nearly given up Diet Pepsi. For those that really know me, you know this is huge. I started my day with Diet Pepsi and didn’t quit until the light was turned off at night. I won’t tell you how many cans I drank a day, but suffice it to say that it was A LOT! I’m down to one to start my day and then water the rest of the day (80-100 oz daily).
I’m happy to report that the first week resulted in a 5 pound weight loss. I know that it won’t stay at that level, but it feels good to know that now I only have 35 pounds to go! So, let’s see how much I can lose this week. I’m more interested that it is always a loss than in the amount. Little by little I will get back to my cute, tiny self!
So this week I’m very thankful that I started and that I lost five pounds!
