Day 8 - 1st weigh in

Monday, August 08, 2011

Well it went better than I expected!! I had not done as well as I planned on Saturday and Sunday so I thought for sure I had only lost 1 lb. I was ready to be ok with that but when I stepped on the scale I lost 5 lbs, I couldnt believe my eyes!! I am sooo happy with that. The reason for my Saturday and Sunday choices not being so great was due to not planning and getting to the grocery store to make sure I had all the foods on hand that I needed so we had to eat out a little. I made the best choices I could based on what they had to offer and I must have done pretty good!
It has become easier and I am not feeling so hungry once I got past day 3 and 4 If I think I am hungry at a time that doesn't make sense I just find something else to think about and drink more water. Usually I find that I am actually thirsty and not hungry after all.
Another thing I did lastnight that was pretty cool was I really wanted a snack when I came home from the grocery store BUT....I knew the scale was waiting for me this morning so I got out a healthy snack but to make sure I didn't overeat, I tokk a bite, put away some groceries then another small bite, and before I knew it I had only eaten 1/2 of the amount I portioned out and was full and satisfied. Because I ate it so slowly I could tell when I was full without eating too much.
