A hungry day

Thursday, November 08, 2007

I went a bit over my calories today! I've been really faithful to the suggested range for quite a while now, so I decided to let myself relax a little. It wasn't anything exaggerated: I've ended up at 1,621 calories when my suggested range (pretty standard, I think) is between 1,200 & 1,550. I was still hungry after lunch, so I went down to the cafe at work & bought a big cookie. Then my husband poured beer at supper, & I hadn't drunk any in several weeks so I agreed. No big deal.

It just feels really, really good to be almost well. You know how wearing certain clothes can make you feel good too: I wore my favorite black jeans (without topstitching--they look like fitted slacks) to work today, & whenever I saw myself in the bathroom mirror I felt slim & pretty.

Still have a few pounds to go for my goal, but it's nice to be able to enjoy life NOW.

    Ditto to Mary Lou's comment on 71 calories over. I still like the Weight Watchers plan to have some flex points (calories) that can be used during the week. I think it makes it much easier to stay within calories most days if you know there's flexibility for eating something special occasionally. I usually only used my daily points, and then used a few of the flex points weekly if needed. It was a great "safety net". Maybe we should build something like that into our team support criteria.

    71 calories. Big deal. When you throw it into the whole week it's not going to make a bit of difference. You had a great day, you were looking good and feeling good. Good for you!
