Fourteen cubes of butter

Monday, July 01, 2013

That's my visual to myself: Last week, I lost weight equivalent to 14 cubes of butter or 3.5 pounds.

The weekend - much much harder to track and eat right. I didn't gorge myself, binge or even really overeat - more I had problems remembering to eat, getting too tired and waiting too long to eat, etc. We did eat at Outback for our anniversary (first time we've had money to do so). Did great until we decided, what the heck, we will split a dessert and ordered the Chocolate Thunder From Downunder. I didn't even finish my half and I felt sooo sick afterward. So. Sick. Like just thinking of it now, three days later....I feel sorta sick again. So very not worth it.

This weekend was a testament to "I just feel better when I eat right".

My partner starts her job today!!! WOOOO HOOOO!!!!

And, it's going to be about 100 today. oh...yay. LOL. I'm not a lizard, I'm a turtle. 70 is just right, 75 is bearable, but I don't like it. Over 80? Uh, no.

Stay hydrated, use SUNSCREEN! and have a great day, I will!

    I love your visualization of the weight lost! Keep the momentum! Doing great.

You know, I have been in maintenance for 3 yrs. now and I just remember vividly when I'd been in maintenance maybe 6 months. I'd gone out to dinner with DH and we split a piece of DEATH BY CHOCOLATE cake. OMG, I was the same as you -- couldn't finish but a few bites of my piece and felt awful after. So, never did it again and don't miss or regret it!

Keep up the good work. Congrats to you on the anniversary too!

    emoticon to your partner on getting a job. Also emoticon to you for trying to stay on track on the weekends. Like you that is the hardest for me. We are never at the house much and usually eat late or sometimes I don't eat much at all. Keep up the good work
