I hope you had a great week last week. Let's just get down to business, drum roll please.............I lost 1.5 pounds.
I swear I am a professional dieter, I know what I should be doing but don't, why is that? I know that a healthy amount to lose is 1-2 pounds a week and my loss for this last week fits right in. But I was so disappointed.
Note to self: Don't weigh in during the middle of the week. I had lost 2.5 pounds 1/2 way through my week but that's not what it ended up at the end of the week and I think that may be part of the reason I was disappointed. I wanted so bad to go out to Burger King or McDonald's for a breakfast sandwich and just say to heck with this weight loss thing. But I persevered, ate my oatmeal and stopped thinking about fast food. That was a huge non-scale victory for me.
To be honest I'm having a hard time staying committed. What? I can only handle eating healthy for two weeks?
With God's help I am coming to this conclusion, life is life and it will have it's ups and downs. I can not let food control my life and I can't avoid life because of food. This weekend my niece graduated, there was the open house and dinner out with friends we hadn't seen for a long time. I didn't obsessed with counting points and if I should eat it or not I just tried to make the best decision with what I had. We'll see what the scale says Saturday morning.
Please pray for me for the next couple of weeks. I have come to realize the my emotional eating is no where in control at this point. I'm am a huge stress eater. My daughter graduates on June 6th and I am starting to stress out and worry that everything won't be ready, (my definition of ready anyhow). I just don't want to gain what I've lost because of stupidity.
