What a great week...


Friday, April 09, 2010

Let me back track first though.

Saturday before Easter, I hit a new low at 175.2. That was very exciting. Sunday, we decided to have Easter at home. I had a couple of pancakes with lite syrup which wasn't the best I could have done, since Hubby had an egg white omlete. But I like making Easter breakfast and wanted them pancakes. Lunch was light, especially after the big breakfast and dinner we made a lot of good choices to hopefully out weigh the bad ones. We had Turkey instead of Ham; we made mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes, and mashed turnips and dinner rolls (which ended up being my weakness and I ate 3 of em). I had a couple glasses of wine with my mom, and we had a bit of cake for dessert. I indulged on a few pieces of Easter candy. I felt good about how the day went even though it wasn't a weight loss kind of day. We also did some yard work and went for a leisurely walk with the kiddos. The monday after I was up to 178, which is not bad! At least it wasn't the dreaded 180.

So this week I've been very focused on eating right. I'm keeping my calories within 1350 and it's working out great. I'm a little hungry during the day between meals, but not for long. Maybe an hour tops. I'm drinking my water and I found a tea with caffeine that I'm replacing my afternoon coffee & creamer with. My weight this morning was 175.4, so really close to a new low. I'm hoping tomorrow morning I'll see a new low.

Tonight we have the challenge of going to Applebee's but with their low calorie menu options, I think this will be easy. I've promised myself, no appetizers and no dessert. It will be nice to spend the time with the family at the restaurant and that's good enough for me.

So I'm very pleased with how things are moving along. The month is still in the first half and I'm already at a lower weight than I have been all month. I think I can sustain this until I hit goal. I'm loving the warm weather and want to get out on more walks and possibly hikes. So we'll see if we can make that happen next week.

Thanks for stopping by!
