My Diet until Thanksgiving – Week 2 (Weigh-in) I Lost only 0.4 lbs! Started at 140.4 and I am at 136.6 total of 3.8 lbs lost. in 2 weeks.
OK, I admit I was disappointed. The first week I did so well and the second I struggled and cheated and it showed up at weigh in. Shock! For example, I went to a buffet to just eat a salad and by the time I left I had eaten every kind of animal they served…..cow, pig, fish, and chicken. Oops! I decided to call it my “free cheat day”……. There will be no more of those until Thanksgiving Day! I worked out 5 days this week but my problem has always been what I put in my mouth.
I admit, this second weigh-in has made me want to try harder this week and I did well over the weekend. I went to a friends pizza party on Friday night and brought my own chicken salad and avocado. I didn’t want to NOT attend. I explained my “packed dinner” and they were fine with it. Don’t feel like you can’t socialize with your friends, you just can’t eat what they are eating.
Funny, while I was writing this my neighbor came over to invite me over for fresh homemade pumpkin pie with fresh whipped cream. I was there in a New York second. I’m smart. My girlfriend is one of the best cooks there is. Like I said I had a good weekend and I am not going to miss out on a “gift” like that Pumpkin is my favorite. No guilt.
However, I am really going to hit it hard this week with workouts and see if I can get to a 5 lb. loss total for my Friday weigh in. That means 1.2 lbs of goo off my body this week! I’m on it!
When all else fails, try again.
