Tracking going well
Thursday, January 10, 2013
Now that I've committed (resigned might be a better word) myself to tracking everything I eat, I think things are going well. My gray pants do not cut in the waist like they did last time I wore them. I have also been weighing myself daily and even though I was up 1.4 pound this morning, I do think it keeps me more on track throughout the day. I thought that 176 I saw yesterday was an aberration anyway.
I have even stayed in my target calorie range for a whole week, and that INCLUDES the weekend, which is normally very difficult for me. I ate cookies AND pie on Saturday. Good Lord! I found calorie counts as best I could and I'll be darned if I didn't stay in my zone! I ate out on Tuesday and even with sharing part of Tom's blizzard, I still did OK. It helped that I checked out the menu for the fast food restaurant online and had a plan going in.
So, the easy weight has come off now. We'll see what tomorrow's weight posting brings, but I hope I'm down 2 pounds from last week and about 5 from where I began.
