This week I started to get back on track and lost 2.2 pounds. I still indulged in too many Halloween treats, but I was also able to just say no and walk away a lot more than I have in the past few weeks.
I said this in the beginning of my journey, though it apparently hasn’t stuck with me since I’m really struggling with it on a daily basis. My biggest problem in the attempt to lose weight is letting myself get too hungry and grabbing the most convenient thing instead of what’s healthy. Lunch is always the hardest meal. I tend to be the most hungry around 10:00 in the morning. Which isn’t exactly lunch time, so some days I’ll grab a snack, usually fairly unhealthy. Or I’ll hold off until 11:00, but by then I’m so hungry I’ll grab what’s easiest. We’re always running around in the mornings bringing Caden to and from school, swimming, or speech as well as running errands and by the time we get home all three of us are starving and cranky and it’s just SO hard to put a healthy meal on the table. I guess my only solution to this is to plan better. Which is easier said than done most days.
I suppose I should mention that I’ve pretty much given up on Weight Watchers. I haven’t tracked my food intake in two and a half weeks. I just got sick of it. And I wanted to prove that I could do this on my own. Last week was an utter failure, though like I said in my last post, I didn’t try AT ALL. This week I tried and lost two pounds. I’m hoping that if I keep making better decisions I’ll eventually lose another 15-20 pounds. It’s going to take a lot longer than I ever expected, though. But as long as I keep trying I can be proud of myself. That’s what counts.
