Luck ran out


Found 3 pounds

Weight 250lbs.

I was counting points for 4 of the 3 days. I did have a birthday ... with cake (too much)... not enough walking inbetween. This may also be my body catching up with my "winging it" approach in the last 2 weeks.

You know, I thought I was doing better last week too... despite the cake on the B'day. I had even brought in a lean cuisine ( I call them lame cuisine)to work but found it not enough to satisfy this bear. mid afternoon I was grazing for more food... and someone brought in girl scout cookies. Please don't feed the bears.

I am back on track this week. No cake or girl scouts in sight. I am counting points and back to walking.

( Thanks for the nudge Kim)

2 More pounds this Week!

Current Weight: 247.0 lbs
Weekly Loss : 2.0lbs
Total Loss: 7.6 lbs

More walks helped I think. I am still having a hard time writing the points down. This is a struggle. I got "lucky" this week. But I have to get honest and shoot for a better journal of the points.

Week 6: Back on track

I managed to lose 1.5 pounds post Holiday food festivities.

Weight : 249.0
Weekly Loss : 1.5 lbs
Total loss 5.6 lbs

I've been walking a mile a day this week, but I have to admit to not counting points religiously. I've only been flying by instinct. I need to get back to the "routine" or I'll blow it.

It's tough. Like one day, at the tail end of my walk, I passed a sub shop and couldn't stop myself from having a hot pastrami... ( one of my weaknesses but high in points) ... that night I had a spaghetti squash spaghetti to compensate with LOTS of salad. I fogot about the temptations that come and the "voices" telling me which way to go or not go. Its a constant internal struggle. Blogging about it gets it out of my head.
