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.

Compensating the same day rather than feeling you blew it and so writing off the rest of the day, is a seriously good state of mind. It took me a LONG time to reach it.

I've been struggling also. I very much agree with you about the importance of returning to a routine. I think you're helping yourself with the walking. I think you can give yourself kudos the next time you walk past the sub shop without going in. After you've done this for a few days and then a few weeks, walking by it without going in will be routine for you.
