This morning I weighed in at 268 so that means I have lost 20 pounds since the beginning of the year. I can honestly say that I am proud of myself since I have had a couple of set backs this year already and since the older I get the harder it is to get the weight off.
Marthasparks gave me some good advice and I have not taken it lightly. I prepare my plate and set down to eat with the kids. When I finish my plate and the kids are still eating I add an additional portion to the food tracker now to see if I can have it and it also gives me enough time to determine if I am full. If I am still unsure whether or not I am full I now drink a full glass of water. Even if I wasn't quite full, putting the additional water in my stomach I am full now. A giant thank you goes out to Marthasparks.
Now my next goal is to log all my food daily again. I'm not sure as to why I have gotten away from that but I know that it's not a good thing to miss doing that. The food tracker really keeps me in check.
One last item before I stop boring everyone to tears, THANK YOU TO ALL MY SPARK FAMILY, YOU ARE MY SUPPORT SYSTEM. WITHOUT YOU ALL I WOULD BE DOING THIS ALONE!
Have a great day everyone and remember sometimes you have to honk your own horn because if you don't no one will know you're coming
