Last weigh-in: 254
Well, I’m not sure exactly what happened this week. I ate really, really well. I measured my foods and counted points and drank lots of water. Plus, I only ate out once this week. Usually that’s enough to lose more than just a half pound. Not this time, I guess!
One thing that was lacking: exercise. I have been so, so busy that I haven’t found time to work out much, except for two hour-long walks on Sat. and Sun. So, while there is that as a reason for only losing a half pound, there have been other weeks in the past where concentrating on my diet has produced better results, even when exercising only a couple times.
Sometimes as we travel down this weight-loss road things just can’t be explained. We do everything right and the results just aren’t what we hoped they’d be. The thing I need to keep in mind this week is, hey! It’s still a loss! I didn’t gain. I didn’t even just maintain. I lost weight. Every pound, every half pound, counts. Every little step matters.
So I’ll keep plugging along, counting points, measuring food (I know this helped! And mentally it just made me feel like I was making progress. Doing well.) and drinking water. I will be out of town this weekend, a long weekend, and I’m going to eat as well as I can and try to make healthy choices. I will definitely get in some intense workouts when I get back, too, so I can work off whatever indulgences I do partake in (Hello, Northeast pizza!). But I hope for the best for next Friday, long weekend vacation or not!
