I mentioned before that I followed the WW plan before. It was much easier to keep within my points when I was working. Food wasn't always readily available at work like it is at home.
I weighed in this morning. I was dreading it. I knew it wasn't going to be a big loss and thought it might even reflect a gain. I lost .6 - not even a full pound. I didn't let it bug me, since I'm happy it wasn't a gain.
Note: the ticker above will change as I lose
I want to post about my mistakes. Not to make excuses, but so I can come back and read and use these posts to help me along the way.
One of my mistakes last week was getting a Blizzard from Dairy Queen on Miracle Treat Day. I know I can have a Blizzard, I just should have gotten the mini blizzard instead of a small.
The biggest of my mistakes last week, was ordering a regular sized Sonic Burger instead of the Jr. Burger. I figured that it would be both my lunch and dinner and thought I had enough points to cover that AND an order of tater tots AND a LARGE Blue Coconut Slush. Boy, was I wrong!
I need to remind myself that I can have these things, but in smaller form. I remember from my old Weight Watchers days that eventually, a kids meal is enough food to satisfy me when I am in the mood for fast food. I don't always have to "super-size" everything.
Last week wasn't ALL mistakes. There were a some good points as well. I ate more fruits and veggies last week. We walked after dinner a couple nights. I drank lots of water (better in the beginning of the week than the end of the week).
The biggest success last week, was avoiding soda. I only had one glass of Diet Pepsi last week. That is a HUGE success for me! To make avoiding soda even more challenging, Joe found Pepsi Throwback at our local grocery store last week. He bought 6 bottles. Pepsi Throwback is my absolute favorite and even with an open bottle in the fridge, I didn't have any! People who know me in real life will know how much of a non-scale victory that is for me!
Now, don't get me wrong, I will be drinking some of that Throwback Pepsi, but I will drink it in moderation. Especially since it's not diet!
I'm hoping this week will be easier. I'll be sticking to basics again this week.
- 6-8 glasses of water each day
- 5 fruit/vegetable servings each day
- 2 dairy servings each day
- keeping within my daily points (24)
- not going over my additional weekly points (35)
- more exercise
