Sooooooooo. I will start off by saying that I am ashamed that I have been M.I.A. for 2 weeks with my weight loss journey. Even though I haven’t been here at the site I have been sort of doing it at home.
I usually start out pretty good, with a tasty grilled chicken on a salad bed, with a side of sweet potato. And then it gets followed by 4 chocolate chip cookies. They truly are a weakness. I think I need to stop buying chocolate chips, because my daughter makes the most perfect chocolate chip cookie, and whenever she makes them, all good intentions evaporate.
Having Labor Day and spending a long weekend with family didn’t help me either. At least mentally. Whenever a holiday rolls around, I tend to think that I have an excuse to eat whatever I want, because the holidays are meant to be enjoyed. Although, I’ve found that since I’ve been keeping this “diary”, I’ve actually felt disgusted with myself when I give in to these excuses. So in the end, I lose (not pounds unfortunately). I end up gaining and being unhappy with myself, and not feeling my best on top of it all.
I do thank you for listening to my whining.
So here you can view my progress, and see where there is a lack thereof. It was kind of sad to see how high that line went when I owned my downfall and entered in my numbers for the week. It was one pound but, to lose it does take a lot. I’ve noticed that this is about where I plateau and lose interest.
Wait, wait! I’m getting an epiphany! Ok, I’ve always heard that you should make small goals in order to easier accomplish your big goal. It all makes sense now. So total, I’ve probably lost about 5 pounds, which I am proud of. My new goal for the next month, another 5 pounds. Wish me luck.
