Tuesday weigh-in

Well, last week I was discouraged about being unexpectedly up 4 lbs. The very next day I was down by 3 lbs., so there must have been some kind of water retention or something going on.

This week I was dreading weigh-in because I had blown it a couple of days, but besides that 3 lbs., I was down another 1 and 1/2 lbs.

So I am a happy camper with a total loss this week of 4.5 lbs.

One (of many) things I still need to work on is feeling like I am entitled to a "treat" at certain places. For instance, yesterday I went to lunch at Fuddruckers with my oldest son -- he and I like it and no one else in the family does, and we were out at lunch time and decided to stop there. I know hamburgers aren't the greatest things to eat when trying to diet, but it is one of those things I am going to allow myself from time to time. :) But besides the hamburger, which I was allowing for, I got a brownie from the bakery because I "always" get a brownie there. So I need to change those rituals in my mind and stop looking on those things as a treat and rather as an obstacle.

I am within half a pound of passing one of those milestone weights that ends in 0 -- I haven't been on the other side of that number in years, and I am hoping to do that this week. Back on track, Barbara!!!

Great job, Barbara! And I love your thoughts on "treats" being "obstacles". I will try that next time I want one of those yummy milkshakes from Chick-fil-a!

Those milestone 0's are so great to get past, or under, or whatever. Good for you on your losses. I am trudging right along in that area too. Not as fast as I used to when I was younger though. Seems it takes a lot more work now.
