I'm down one more pound for a total of 4.8 pounds in two weeks. Not too shabby, last weekend's eating out excesses considered. I'm looking forward to saying that I've lost five pounds! My pants are much more comfortable now! I can't wait to hit my five pound mark at the next meeting.
What's working: I really blew it this weekend. We ate out a few times, and I didn't track or make good choices. However, I treated the rest of the week as though I had used all of my flex points (an extra calorie allowance we're alotted to use where we choose), and it kept me on track pretty well. And cooking at home! It makes a big difference to know what I'm putting in my food and controlling portions.
Also, a beautiful side effect of this program is that since I'm not eating when bored, to distract myself from the impulse, I clean. My house looks better, I feel better, and the weight is coming off. Win-win-win.
What's not working: not writing things down enough, missing practices. My first week, I took advantage of every opportunity to be active- three practices, two walks, and a trip to the inflatable playhouse. I need to get back to this.
I really love these meetings- they help so much. I'm looking forward to what this week will bring!
