My original goal date was July 7. I was pretty good until I got social again. It's so easy to eat right when you are at home measuring food. lol.
Basically, I've figured out that even when I'm being good, if I'm out being social, I'm going to eat 2000 calories that day. I have hit 3000 which is double my high-end calories for the day.
I just won't say no to french fries or a cocktail though I'm getting better at stopping sooner.
So, a week-ish out, I'm still about 7 pounds heavier than my goal weight and there's no way I'm losing it that fast. Also realizing that I don't put that much effort into working out. Gonna have to remedy that.
The good thing is that I have lost some fat. I've only lost 4 pounds total in about a month and have hovered at this weight for a couple of weeks. Realized that 122 isn't really worth working that hard for lol. 124 is attainable and, more importantly, maintainable. But, man, since I've hit my mid-thirties, this weight maintenance/loss thing is HARD!

I was lying on my bed, staring up at the ceiling, trying to figure out whether I really needed to go to another grocery store when I realized something -- I was still wearing my jeans.
When I started logging my info on SparkPeople a few weeks ago, my jeans were tight. So tight that I either didn't wear them and wore dresses or took them off the second I came home.
They fit. Comfortably. No muffin top. My butt is starting to look good in them. Yay! Fitting into my jeans was my first goal. I'm glad I'm there, even after a bingey weekend and not working out all week (dancing not included).
So, yay! Even though I'm about 2 pounds heavier than my trajectory, I'm glad. Now onto goal # 2: fitting into my low rise jeans without smiling at people from behind

Started my weight loss regiment a couple of weeks ago. Been doing pretty well--learning what I can eat and what I probably should shy away from. Also discovered that I don't eat nearly enough protein, iron or calcium so started taking supplements since I don't get enough in my diet.
Have been on the line exactly (on the weight loss trajectory line). Skipped a trip to Vegas, partly due to not wanting to overspend or overeat. Went to Denver for a festival and to visit friends so I knew that I would be spending money and eating badly.
Overall, this week, I came out about 400 calories over. Not too shabby since I ate about 3000 calories one day (my target amount is 1200-1550 daily). Booze isn't as caloric as I thought it would be. It's the fried foods: hash browns, corndogs, french fries.
Gained a pound not sure how since you need a net increase of 3500 calories a week for a pound gain. Not too bothered by it. Overall, feeling good. Am realizing that even the times when I know I'm going to eat crappy food, I can still manage it. I didn't eat all the hash browns on my plate, didn't eat a snack just because everyone else was, ordered less food.
I go to San Francisco next week to visit my pregnant friend so will have to be vigilant because we tend to eat and watch movies all week. Gonna stop by the Korean market and buy pommelos--it will be a good snacking thing to have as my friend chomps on snack foods. lol
This week will be about getting back to my regular weight-loss eating habits and working out. Pretty pleased overall.
