Yip yip yippee!!! This was a good week. After last week’s misstep, I was very conscientious about every bit of food that I put in my mouth, but I definitely didn’t starve or deny myself. I was just smarter about the portions. Rather than having a giant sandwich from Dominoes & chips, I had 1/2 the sandwich and a side salad. Rather than having a Diet Coke, I drank water to be sure I got my 8 glasses of water/day.
Now, without further ado . . . I am down 1.8 pounds this week which brings my grand total to: 6.3 pounds lost total! Almost halfway to my first goal of 13.5 pounds! Hooray! I set my original goals almost exactly one month ago and most professionals will tell you that one pound per week is a normal, healthy rate at which to lose weight and to be the most successful at keeping it off. So, I’m actually slightly ahead of schedule! I know that 6.3 pounds doesn’t sound like much, but it is definitely progress. It is motivation for me to drop another 7.2 pounds. When I hit my first mini-goal, I am going to do something small to celebrate. Something that is non-food related, of course. I am going to buy myself a new pair of jeans or get a massage or get a pedicure or something small but fun to acknowledge that I am doing it. Something to acknowledge that I am one step closer to being at my goal weight.
Any suggestions of my celebratory prize should be?
