First rough week since I started on Jan. 2006
Monday, April 24, 2006
I was up one pound this past week and I knew I would be. My hubby says I shouldn't stress over a measly pound but he doesn't have as much weight to lose as I do. Now, if I were already at my goal, which is to lose at least 64 pounds, then I wouldn't worry about a measly one pound or even 5 pounds but I have a ways to go. The holiday's are tough for me. I come from a family who loves to cook and eat all kinds of wonderful foods. Also, obesity runs on both sides of my father and I take after my dad more then my mom, "so", genetics doesn't help.
Also eating out is hard for me and it makes me feel insecure when I can't weigh and measure my foods. I am trying to get used to using "visual" measuring to help me when I'm away from home. Thank goodness we usually only eat out on Saturday "date night". This past week though I had 4 dinners away from home. Next week will be a better week.
