5.1 Pounds LOST!!! I can't believe it. Last week, on my scale at home, I lost 5 pounds, but our weigh-in scale only showed a 2 pound loss. This week my scale at home showed a .5 pound loss, but the weigh-in scale showed a 5.1 pound LOSS!! YEAH!! I don't know if I'm the biggest loser or not, but I don't care--I DIDN'T HAVE TO PAY IN AGAIN!!
I have been staying within my calorie range pretty steadily this week. I haven't had terrible cravings, but I have been tempted. Just the sight of sweet foot tantalizes my taste buds, and I can't seem to stop with just one. I ate SIX cookies on Monday. I did come home and do some stairs, but I woke up Tuesday morning knowing that I didn't want any more cookies all week long.
Yesterday, I went to the grade school to talk to some teachers and the 1st grade class was having snacks. They had oreos, and I asked for one. Then I read how many calories each oreo had, and it just wasn't worth it. So I put my cookie back. The teacher said, "Oh, take one. I had one earlier." But I didn't, and I was OK with that. By the time I got back to the high school, I wasn't even thinking about that missed oreo. (The high school is across the street from the grade school.) Anyway, she was trying to sabotage my plans!! (She's one of my competitors in the Biggest Loser.)
So, losing that weight was a big bonus for me.
