This week: 168.2
Last week: 168.3
Well, this week's loss was a bit disappointing, but I have to remember that a loss is a loss. That is 0.1 lbs gone and, in the grand scheme of things, I know the weight will continue to come off. I'm not looking for an instant cure, after all. Like I've said before, it's a lifestyle change so, if I stick with it, the weight WILL come off.
This week will be a challenge, as Jackson is turning 3 and we all know that birthdays aren't complete without the cake! I'll just have to be careful, have a small piece, and count WW points for it. No problem - I can do it. And, if I want more, I'll just drink some water and pop a piece of gum... and send everyone home with the leftovers!
While I'm planning for the inevitable cake-fest this month (which includes Jackson's, Natalie's and my birthday), I should also start preparing myself for the holiday season. Last year, when I was enormously pregnant with Natalie, I was eating all of the Christmas goodies I could get my hands on - cookies, candy, chocolate. This year, I'm avoiding. Well, not completely avoiding, but just tasting instead. Ugh, it's hard. But I can do it. After all, I did manage to lose over Thanksgiving. But, that was only one day. Christmas eating has seemed to engulf the entire month.
I can do it. I can do it. I will stay strong. I will not eat my weight in cookies.
Stay tuned to see how cake-fest (part 1) turns out!
