My daughter finally closed on her house and moved from the big city to a small town this weekend. I offered to help with the move, so DH and I went to help her and her family. She was so well organized that we didn't have as much to do as I thought we would, but we still worked hard...and had some fun too!
It takes us 8 hours to drive there and another day back, so only 5 days were actual work days. I knew my eating healthfully would be a challenge, but I did it. I was within my calories, etc 5 of the 7 days. We ate at Subway for lunch there and back and I brought 2 coolers of healthful food for breakfasts and lunch the 2 days we would be without DD's refrigerator. So my snacking, breakfasts and lunches went well. For dinners, we ate out and I found that a challenge since I don't eat out much. I just decided to be picky and discriminating and if I couldn't find a "lite" or healthy choice on the menu, I asked the waitress for grilled meat and steamed veggies without butter. I did really well. The 2 days I ate over my limit were Memorial Day and the day after. I did eat BBQ and had some Hard Lemonade and wine. I thoroughly enjoyed my DS in law's cooking and made conscious decisions to eat and drink what I did. I didn't have internet during the trip, but I wrote everything down and tracked it when I got back. It was a real test to see how well I could do just judging on my own. I also wasn't able to weigh until I got back.
THIS MORNING I WEIGHED 198 POUNDS! I LOST A POUND LAST WEEK!
198! Thank you Spark People
