Hello 141 (smallest ever) and goodbye weekend belly

Sunday, May 06, 2012

Friday I weighed in, hoping to be below 143 because I had gained so much during my week of binging a few weeks my surprise, I was at 141, my smallest ever in my adult life...

On to my cheat days! Fridays and Saturdays are my cheat days and boy did I cheat. It was no surprise to me at all that my 8s were snug and my 10s were on call for most of the weekend.

Today, Sunday, I start back on track and back in the cycle of good girl eating and working out until Friday when I cheat again for 2 days. I'm learning though. I have been cutting my cheat food in half (most of the time) and sharing bad for me meals with friends or a kiddo. The funny thing is looking at my tummy. By the time I'm showering on Sunday evening after Zumba, my tummy is noticeably (at least to me) bloated.

I used to freak out, but I don't anymore. I know what the week brings. I know in a few days my 8's will like my booty again and I will feel good. I used to get mad at myself and think about how much farther I would be if I didn't cheat, but I don't anymore. I have drove myself insane by not giving myself cheat days before and I end up stressing more and thus losing less. I'm learning the science of losing weight that works for me, and I'm pretty content.

Hope you all made it a great weekend! Make it a great week!
