My weigh-in today, one day short of official weigh-in day, tells me that I've lost 10 pounds so far. In 2 weeks. Wow!
I know that I can't expect to continue this kind of progress throughout, but it does give me motivation. I need some, too. Easter was tough--delicious food, and everyone snacking all day long, while I just drank one shake. And all the Easter candy. And the pasta at home that I cooked for my daughter's birthday.
So far, if I'm not around food, I'm alright. Not hungry even. But if I see other people eating, smell food, or am around it, then I start getting a) hungry and b) bitter, and neither of those are conducive to discipline.
So far so good--I haven't been off plan so far. But this week chaperoning the trip to Chicago will prove a definite temptation. I'm going to have to eat in restaurants with the students, so we'll see how that goes. Hopefully I can keep my progress in mind, as I chomp on my lettuce.
