What a slog this week has been so far! I was overly concerned with the scale, and thankfully it finally moved, but not by much. I am working on this phase 2 thing, and will get back to my workout routine tomorrow. Chris has been home the last 3 days, and I didn't want to kick him out of the living room to do my workout, or move my stuff upstairs. Kind of a lazy excuse, but we turned the house upside down cleaning and reorganizing today, so that was a lot of work and I counted it as my fitness minutes.

I've caved in to temptation on a couple of "off limits" foods according to this diet plan, but I definitely exercised moderation and it hasn't hurt my progress at all. That was a great feeling, knowing I didn't make an ideal choice, but still didn't derail myself altogether. I picked out a (non-food) reward for every 5 pounds I lose, and I'm really looking forward to the next one!

I'm feeling good about my progress this week, even though it's only halfway over. I've conquered a couple of the mental hurdles that can really make me quit caring about working on my health and weight loss, so that's a very positive thing!

    Controlling your eating is a major part of the battle. As long as you stay within the calorie range, you have a lot of latitude in what you can eat.

Getting over the mental obstacles is a great thing! Each time it should get a bit easier to do...rather like walking the same path in the snow... you become used to where the path is.

    I am doing really well at not bothering with the scale lately and if I do see it, I mostly don't care what it says (as long as it's not up a bunch).
Great job on your progress!
