I had another good week of tracking and it paid off once again! I'm down 3.2lbs which means I met two goals today.
- I lost my first five pounds. Something that has been very hard for me this Fall. I would have a good week, loose like 3lbs and then be back up the next week. Those five pounds were a huge mental block for me. And while I know it is not going to be easy ongoing, it feels pretty good to get over that hurdle. Just gotta keep going. I have proof it's working.
- I lost two weeks in a row. Like I said above, this Fall I would have a good week and loose a few pounds, but then gain them all back the next week. So when I set out to do this I said I just wanted to loose two weeks in a row. And I did!
So, I'm setting my next goal for five pounds...which is really close to another goal of going under 200lbs. But just one thing at a time,right?
I also decided I'm going to make some sort of magnet for my fridge for every five pounds that I loose. I can't afford to go to meetings and collect the five pound stars. But I think I can make something pretty cool to hang on my fridge and remind me of my progress.
I'm also going to challenge myself to use some of the recipes I have found on WW or from other people's blogs. The food I have been eating the past two weeks has been filling and making me feel good and taking the pounds off...but I can tell I'm starting to get bored. I usually hate to cook, but I'm going to try at least one new recipe this week. I saw a post about whole wheat waffles which has had me craving waffles all week, so I think I'm going to try that.
Oh...and I want to have fish for at least one dinner this week. I'll treat myself and get something from Whole Foods to make.
It feels different this time. I can see the end goal and I REALLY REALLY want to get there. But I'm also able to accept reality as it is right now and accept what I have to do to get to the end goal. And that it will take TIME and a change in how I approach things. And I think that is a HUGE life lesson that I'm learning right now and will have a huge impact in so many areas of my life.
