On My Holiday...

I was not a good dieter. I decided if I deprived myself of BBQ pork and brisket made by my father in law, I would just be resentful and lose ground. Especially since I had bypassed German Chocolate cake at the church potluck Sunday night and still had not lost more Monday morning. Angel food cake with strawberries instead of what looked like homemade german chocolate cake should be good for a pound or two lost. So when we were doing Memorial Day lunch with Erik's parents, I decided to take a day off. He had also made banana & Coconut cream pies. They were mighty fine. My compromise was that we rode bikes to and from their house and also did yard work.


Today, as I stepped on the scale, I was prepared to pay the price of a splurge the day before weighing in. But the scales are my friend today and showed a loss of 5.5 pounds. So YAH!!! This means I will get a button and a gold star and I am so excited. I had hoped it would be a good week because I have been faithful to Weight Watchers points all week and also have been moving alot. I won't call it exercise, but I have been going on walks and just moving more.

After gaining two last week, I really needed this. This may be just what the Dr. ordered to kick depression out of my bed for good. This makes him available, so be on guard.

Congratulations! Moving always makes the difference. I know it has helped me. I hope that this week it is even easier to make good choices with food. one thing I keep in mind is that after I am full and satisfied, I never sit back and think about how good what I ate was. So whether I am having a low cal shrimp and scallops over rice with lemon or a steak dinner, I am satisfied to the same degree, but the difference in fat and calories is just drastic.

Keep on going. I put my fitday journal for eating and fitness up as a public journal, so if you would like to view it, it's here:

I have gone from eating about 6500 calories and 370 grams of fat down to 1200 and 10 grams of fat. I feel so much better! I can't wait to see your posting next week.
