And Kept -- during a challenging week

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Third Sunday in a row with the scales under 160! Even better, last week I was traveling and still under 160 on the Sunday weigh in. Did a lot of walking, but no workouts. Paid attention to what I was eating in restaurants, but fully enjoyed the meals with family and friends. Result -- weight about steady for the week, and still under the 160 mark. Two strategies that help me: 1) picking low carb choices and 2) realizing that it's hard to avoid huge portions when eating out, so leaving some food behind may be a necessity if there's no way to take it home.

Looking forward to next week!

    This is the point so many folks mess up on, the maintenance side of health and fitness. You are doing great, keep it up.

    Good job and spot on with the strategies for eating out when on the road.

    I agree fully with you. My scale at home has been 158 that last two days (even at night) but I use the gym scale on Tuesdays for my official weigh-in. So excited to be under the 160 mark! I had a similar experience with dining out the other evening too. emoticon
