this week

Well, I am really struggling to get my feet under me in this weight loss journey.  Last week I lost momentum and did a poor job in tracking and drinking water.  A couple of times I made poor food choices and I didn't even care.  Not good.

With that being said, here are the weigh in results:
Last week:     180.0
Today:           181.0
               gain     1.0

Goals for this week:
*Journal all my eating

I hope to be back next week with some victories to report.

Where I am at...

I forgot to write last week and I really want to have a record of this journey.  So here are the weigh in results for weeks 4 and 5:

previous week:   184.0
last week:           182.0
                            -2.0  pounds

last week:           182.0
today:                 180.0
                             -2.0 pounds

Yay!  Beginning weight 189.5, so that's a 9.5 pound loss.  It has taken me a long time to get here, but I feel like I am getting better at this each week.  I am looking for lifestyle change, so slow and steady can get me there! (I sometimes have to remind myself as I watch the scale...)

Weighing in: Yet again

It was a tough week.  I had some emotional stuff come up and emotional exhaustion sends me into default mode.  Default mode is I just start running on auto pilot and not making a plan. So, all of a suden, I am hungry and I don't have any healthy choices available.  In good news, I did not go over my points most days.  But, I did not eat the healthiest choices nor did I drink enough water.  I didn't write down my points either.  Like I said: default mode.

I do, however, consider it a victory that I did not default into emotional eating whatever I could get my hands on- especially junk food.

Last week's weight:  184.0
This week's weight:  184.0

My goals for this week are to get back to business.  I have already increased my water intake and I will be writing my points each day- good, bad or ugly.  I am once again packing healthy snacks for work and I will pack a lunch or have a plan as to what I will eat for lunch.  New goal for this week is make a better dinner plan for our family!

Weighing in for the 3rd time.

Week 2 is complete and I feel like I made some good progress.  I struggled at the beginning of the week and one day I just said "I don't care" and ate at Sonic.  Then I was offered some cookies and I ate those too.  I was frustrated with myself and it took me about a day and a half to recover, but I did it.  I was proud of myself for not giving up.  I have a history in my weight loss journey of giving up when I feel defeated.  But I pushed through and had some really good days as well.

Some victories:  I drank more water.  I ate within my points most days.  I found some yummy recipes on pinterest that are low points and are helping me get out of the cooking rut I was in.  I found a couple of healthy choices at the gas station where I stop in for bathroom and drink breaks, so I have some good options if I am hungry and needing something to eat.

To work on this week:  Keep at it.  Add some exercise.

Last week's weight:  185.5
Today's weight:        184.0
Difference:                  -1.5
