Week three of my journey

Monday, January 17, 2011

In the past when I have entered week three of losing weight, it always is the most challenging week for me. Knowing since day one that this would be a critical week, I have been trying to come up with strategies that would get me through week three. The good thing about week three is that my body is starting to get used to the reduced calories. I did a work out with Leslie Sansone this evening and I really wasn't hungry after but since I hadn't had any freggies all day(I know, I know), I knew I had to make a big salad loaded with veggies for dinner. It felt good to work out especially since I lacked the energy to work out this weekend. I had a night out with my honey Saturday, which we haven't done in a long time, and we had sushi and martinis. Not the best food choices but I didn't go overboard like I usually would either so I view it as progress, especially since I didn't partake in any snacks when we went to the basketball game.

So week three is off to a good start. I'll need to go to the store to stock up on fresh freggies since I'm nearly out. I have a meeting with my health coach this week and that will also help with the week three hump. And of course, I have my support team here at SP!

    You can make it through week 3!! It is the toughest week for a lot of things. When I was trying to quit smoking, I found week 3 was inevitably when I'd start back up again. So the last time I quit, I just promised myself I'd push through week 3. If I still wanted to start smoking again in week 4, I could. That was over 6 years ago, and I'm still smoke-free. Week 3 can be beaten!!!

    It's soooo good to recognize where we've fallen before so that we can avoid it in the future. Great job on being active in the solution.

    I'm just out 'blog hopping' and found yours.... we have a LOT in common! We started at the same weight and have the same goal. I am also in my third week of my latest attempt to make living healthy a permanent part of my life. I went to WW about seven years ago and did great... I need the accountability of having someone weigh me! Unfortunately, I didnt care for the meetings as a whole, or the money I was spending. I've never tried the online version, but it sounds like it is working for you. Hope you dont mind if I add you as a Spark Friend so I can follow your progress. Best of luck to you!
