I've been on track all week (since Sunday's piggy day), and the weight just isn't dropping! Tomorrow is our Biggest Loser weigh-in day, and it looks like I'll be holding steady again.
So I'm looking at my current efforts... reevaluating. Can I eat a little less? Can I work out more? Yes, I can... Here I was feeling so proud of myself for staying in my calorie range and working out pretty much every day. But it looks like it's not enough. Eat less. Move more.
I'm holding out some hope that maybe, just maybe, it's water retention. My weight jumped up a couple pounds today, and I had a Panera salad last night, which, as it turns out, was rather high in sodium.
I can do better. I just hate getting into that extreme black-and-white perfect eating. It's not sustainable. Mentally, I just can't maintain that forever. I'm doing well with my occasional little treats. They're more rare now. Shouldn't that be helping? The only little treats I had yesterday were... Natural Bliss low fat creamer in my coffee in the morning. Flavia creamer and one sugar packet in my coffee in the afternoon. And then last night as I was making a chocolate chip cheesecake for my son's birthday (his request), I had like 5 mini chocolate chips. Ugh. I just hate the thought of even attempting to go treat-free!
So... I need to trim some calories from my daily intake and amp up my calorie burn. Baby steps. And NO more piggy days!!! Maybe just one teensy widdle itty bitty TASTE of the birthday cheesecake?!?!?!?!
