Lessons from Week 3 of 2010

Friday, January 22, 2010

Well, well, who knew that eating sensibly could become a habit at my age?

This 3rd week of the Win in 2010 challenge I'm in was the easiest yet. I'm basically eating the same breakfast every day and happy with it. I don't think about lunch until it's about time for lunch, instead of dwelling on it all morning. It's the biggest meal of my day.

Dinner has been reasonable and I even told Joe I didn't want him to make popcorn last night.

I have had a few urges to eat after dinner, but guzzled down more ice water and ignored the urge to eat and it went away.

I go to bed happy each night, knowing I'll have a small gift when I get on the scale next morning.

So three weeks and the good habits are settling in; staying on plan is not as hard and the rewards are wonderful. I'm down almost 8 lbs for the year and 1.5 " smaller in my waist.
Most of all, I'm feeling good!

    I do think it gets easier as we start seeing how much better we feel and the plus of seeing the scale go down. PJ
