Due to the holiday weekend, I weighed in a little early on Saturday and lost 3 more pounds this week for a total of 10.8 pounds! I feel great about the loss and hope to lose another 10 by my birthday on Oct 2.
Overall, this week was a little harder. I felt really hungry a couple of days and seemed to get all of my energy sucked out at 4pm. Except for a 10 minute attempt at yoga, and a walk Saturday night, I have not exercised this week. I am going to focus on exercising 3 times this coming week and see if the energy level picks up.
The weekend was a bit challenging. We went out of town to celebrate our niece's 30th birthday. We stuck to the plan with the exception of the birthday meal itself, which was fairly healthy - grilled steaks, grilled veggies, salads... but it was "off plan", especially the corn on the cob and 3 bites of birthday cake I ate. It could have much worse so I'm not beating myself up over it. I don't think anyone does this weight loss thing perfectly, but I have been that person that used every occasion as an excuse to blow it. And keep blowing it until Monday, or until I go back to the grocery store, or until after so & so's party next week. So far, this has been a most unusual experience for me in that I've stuck with it for so long, even after blowing it a little.
56.2 lbs to go!
