My Week's 10 Weightloss Observations

6 years ago


So I've observed a few things this week and last about my journey to health and weightloss. See if you can relate....

1- Last week I ate much healthier than the week before, but didn't lose any weight.

2- I feel on days like today I kind of balanced things out when I ate 3 homemade cookies for lunch, then a small bowl of beanie weenies and a few stalks of celery for dinner. What do you think?

3- I consider it a VICTORY when I can wear my 27 year old daughter's hand me down pants. I feel like I went shopping today!

4- I had coffee with a new friend today at Starbuck's. The Vanilla Skinny Latte was delicious, try it if you haven't, you'll never know it has fewer calories than most the other coffees there.

5- Vanilla Wafers are so much better for me than a Hershey's Almond Chocolate bar, right? I hope so, half the box disappeared last night.

6- I am drinking even more water this week and spending more time checking out bathrooms around my county.

7- My mind seems to be clearer, not so foggy as it has been lately. I'm not sure if that has something to do with the changes I'm making or not but I suspect it does.

8- I discovered lowfat turkey hotdogs are not as good as they sound, however they get the job done.

9- I received a compliment from an older gentleman this week, he said " You look like you're losing weight." Does this count even if it was my 74 year old father-in-law? Hey motivation is motivation wherever it might come from.

10- I have a sleeping problem. It is imperative if a healthy lifestyle is to succeed that one get a good night's sleep. Unfortunately there's a train in the bed with me every night. Anyone have any ideas other than surgery or nose strips?

All in all this week was just ok. Watching the scales tip in my favor would have made it much better but I did get that compliment which gives me motivation to go on another week. It's day by day, week by week for me.
