Week 6-Feeling pretty good
Monday, March 07, 2011
So after week 6, I've lost 1.1 pounds! WooHoo! That's a total of 6.5 pounds. My goal was to be about 10 pounds, but who cares?
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, my husband and I were at a homeschool convention. I did not have very good options as far as food went. I just had to keep it in moderation. We went to this one restaurant and it was soooooo good. My options weren't very good there because everything was expensive. So I ordered the best grilled cheese sandwich I've ever had! Yum! Cheddar cheese, tomato and bacon. But they also had the best fries I've ever had. Parmesan fries. And they gave us a ton! It was hard to stop and I probably should have stopped sooner, but I stopped sooner than I would have in the past. In the past I probably would have eaten them until I couldn't eat any more! I'm still dreaming about those fries. They were so good! The next night we walked about 15 minutes to this sushi restaurant. Again our options were slim because it was so expensive, but one of the cheapest things on their menu were the salads, so not bad. And of course we had sushi. When we at at fast food restaurants, I would order just the hamburger and brought in a bottle of water. The only time I really splurged for fast food was on the way home at Taco Bell. But other than that, I feel pretty good about my choices. I even exercised at the hotel. The fitness room was full, so my husband and I went jogging/walking. I could barely do it, but I was at least active. And then we went back to our room and I did my strength training. I was going to try and do it again on Saturday, but I was too tired.
This might be a little TMI, but since we had no kids with us I was either able to walk around naked a little more (i.e. didn't have to bring my clothes into the bathroom for after my shower) or at least walk around in my underwear. So I saw myself in mirrors a little more. I noticed small differences in my body that I'm very happy with. And I also noticed that my jeans weren't fitting very well. And the numbers showed that this week. I lost a half inch in my waist and an inch in my hips. And then I think I lost 2.5 inches in my right thigh and I think an inch in my right arm! I was already feeling good about myself and didn't care if I had lost weight or not. That 1.1 pound is just icing.
