So, been working but not blogging. I actually lost some weight--6.4 since starting WW. Not spectacular, but at least it is downward. We travel a lot, eat out on weekends with friends--it's no excuse, but it is fact.
Still working, and thinking through how to participate in the wedding weekend coming up. I can do it...

Well, it's been a long time since I posted. Still trying to find the key, yes, but I remembered that once in the past when I was doing WW, I tried to reduce carbs--the whites and heavies--and had some success. To that end, I have tried this over the past week; my last WI was on Feb 11 until today--we were out of town last weekend. In that 10 days, I lost 1.5 lbs--pretty good for a slow-poke like me. It's more than the usual 1/2 per week that I'm so tired of posting. So, I'm going to stick with it. I think I'm eating too many calories though, so I'm going back to charting meals on SP to see my calorie count vs. carb count.
Today is Ash Wednesday--the start of 40 days of Lent. I'm not depriving myself, but I am going to pledge to avoid sweets--as snacks or as desserts. I did this a couple years ago and it served not only a purpose for Lent of feeling some pain as we relive Christ's journey, but I felt proud that I could manage it and not screw it up. I really pledged myself to monitoring just that one thing and it paid off, emotionally as well as at the scale.
So, that is the plan. My goal is to succeed.

Yep, I knew it, I knew it...I blew it! I expected a gain and I got one. Really, other people do this...I am just not commited to the process. I am recommiting to my WW plan and I am going to work at it...journal, plan, plan, exercise, plan, mind eating out, plan.
Potential problems for this week: Dinner out Monday at a meeting, out of town overnight on Wednesday (that means eating out all day Wed & Thurs), missing my regular gym appt on Wed morning.
Potential solutions: Plan, plan, plan for eating out. Monday is easier, We/Th harder since I have no idea where we will be going. I will take exercise clothes with me and can get on the treadmill at night--just not a morning person and my meetings start at 8.
For now, this is what I can do. I am planning our home meals today for the remainder of the week--unsure of weekend plans at this point. Still trying to find the key.

8 oz., 1/2 lb, not much...call it what you will. Once again, I lost 1/2 pound...will I never see the day when I lose one whole pound in a week??? At first the old negative me said," what the
%$&? I only lost 1/2 lb this week?" Then I tried to put a good face on it. 1) we went to NYC last weekend and ate out F, S nights, Su brunch and dinner; 2) I didn't journal--have been sick for a week and not really keeping track--just eating to fill an empty space; 3)Out to dinner Fri night before WI. Hey! I lost 1/2 pound this week! OK, so I've only lost almost 3 lbs since Dec 17 (oh, that sounds REALLY pathetic), but I'm down about 3 pounds. My goal this week is to lost 1 lb. Ridiculous? Maybe, but it will be a first. How will I do this? Avoid some carbs...I think this is the key to kickstarting loss of a whole pound. More later...
Just posted my pitiful 5% challenge loss of 2 lbs...
I have 4 weeks from now to lose a few: a short trip to Florida coming up.
