Today’s Weight: 211.5
Loss/Gain: -4.0 lbs.
Total Loss So Far: -19.5
Yes, I am thrilled! I worked a little harder this week and not only did I lose the two pounds I gained last week, but two more on top of that. Yippee!! I am now half a pound away from twenty pounds lost.
Oh, I can smell it, it’s so close!
A few things I did different this week were:
-I didn’t eat late at night, except a handful of grapes one night. I just told myself, “No.” and then I would stop and see if I was really hungry, which I wasn’t. We’ve had a week of revival services and it’s hard not to come home from church wanting a snack before bed, but I did it. 🙂
-I also ate small portions at dinner and made myself stop and realize that I was satisfied, though I felt FAR from full. This hasn’t been easy. I have eaten homemade tortillas, but less than last week.
– I also haven’t had anything sweet in a few days. I gave the cupcake offered to me at school by a student the other day to my daughter. Plus, I had taken a Snickers snack size candy to a teacher for helping me out (she requested chocolate in exchange for the help) and found I grabbed two instead of one. I was going to eat the second one myself, but I decided to just give it to her later. I knew I didn’t need it, I didn’t really want it and I decided that I need to save my sweet treats for those moments when I really, really want them.
So, those are three things that I can think of off the top of my head that I did differently this week. And they worked! Have a great Friday everyone. :o)
