Total Loss So Far: – 16.5 lbs.
I was a bit sad that I wasn’t down this week, because I’ve exercised regularly and I’ve been careful about my eating. My eating has been fine portion-wise, but I noticed earlier in the week that I hadn’t been eating that many vegetables. Looking over my food journal I noticed it was true the entire week. There were hardly any fruits and vegetables in my week. I won’t go into too much, but let’s suffice it to say that a good dose of apple juice and high-fiber something right before bed last night would probably have helped my weigh-in today since I also had a good helping of white rice in my dinner last night and not one fruit or vegetable yesterday. I know I shouldn’t try and “trick” the scale. So, instead, I will work on getting in more fruits and vegetables this week, because I learned today that it does make a difference.
It's kind of funny how you don't realize what you're putting into your diet, until you actually take a look at it. I do that too, where I think, “Oh wow. Guess I should be eating more fruits and vegetables, but I've been eating relatively healthy.” 🙂
I think a sign of a person who is going to be successful in losing weight and keeping it off is constant analysis of what is being done and how effective it is. I love reading when someone looks back over their week to see if they did something a little off.
I think it's interesting too how you really are analyzing what you need to change on a weekly and even daily basis.
I'll bet you will have a bit loss next week – that's what usually happened to me. I'd stay the same, and then all of a sudden I'd see a 3 pound drop!
