I've been stalled in my weight loss for a few weeks.
And then today, my weigh-in showed a gain of 0.6 pounds. Sure, I know it's not much, but after not losing for two weigh-ins previously, it's a trend that needs to stop.
And I know what's tripping me up. I'm doing great on my fitness minutes, but not so great on my nutrition. I've gone back to snacking a little as I'm cooking supper AND I haven't been tracking my supper/evening calories.
I got complacent.
I figured I knew how many calories everything had, so I stopped measuring my supper. I just eyeballed it and if it didn't look filling enough, I added a little more. I knew I was on a downhill slide this week when I added shredded cheese to my spaghetti. I haven't done that since I started Sparking.
So I updated my page to show that weight gain - no sweeping it under the carpet. And I decided to set a goal of 10 pounds lost by Christmas.
In my case, the goal date is actually the 21st (Winter Solstice!) as I weigh in on Fridays. It's 11 full weeks. Should be doable, even at my normal snailish losing pace.
Starting weight: 182.6
Target weight: 172.6 (Although I'd really do the happy dance if I could get under 170)
Reward: Since I've already set a mini goal/reward for reaching my halfway weight (172.5) I'll just stick with that: $50 to spend at Herrschners.com.
Anyone want to join me??? I'd love to have you along.
