500-999 SparkPoints

10 pounds

Thursday, June 13, 2013

I have lost ten pounds! If I sound underwhelmed, its because I have not been able to focus on my weight loss like I imagined I would. Life is great, but so so busy. I have been eating very healthy for the most part. I have not been perfect, but have had some minor successes that I am quite happy about. I went to the movies with some friends and I went in thinking I would skip the regular movie snacks altogether, and was disappointed when I found myself standing in line as the smell of the popcorn proved irresistible. After some thought, I decided I would get a kids pack. It included a small amount of popcorn , a small drink (I chose diet coke) and a small bag of Welch's fruit snacks. I normally get a huge tub of popcorn with extra butter and eat myself sick at the movies. So this was a bit of a victory. I felt guilty at first, but then realized that I very much enjoyed my kids pack. I ate slowly and savored each piece instead of stuffing my face with handfuls of it. This is the way I want to enjoy every movie in the future and maybe after I have a achieved my weight loss goals, I can swap the Welch's fruit snacks for a small piece of chocolate emoticon
