OMG, you can eat healthy too. Or rather, Wow I lost 3 lbs!

7 years ago

So I weighed myself today, a day early I know, but I had to see if what I was doing was working, and shockingly I am down to 220lbs, and that was with jeans on!  I realizze this is not much and that the beginning water weight comes off "easy", but I am quite happy at my little 3lbs.  

What have I done differently this week.  First, no sweet snacks, no candy, no eating for the sake of eating.  I only ate my prescribed points and horror of horrors, I wasn't really any hungrier than usual.  That says to me that I was way overeating, eating because it tasted good or even out of boredom.  And it says I need a hobby, eating from boredom is no good.  Second, I actually exercised 3 times this week.  I went to Curves after work 3 times this week, and I need to keep it up, I was slightly sore, but it was a good kinda sore.  

Well I am proud of me, and I really want to keep this up.  I did make some good food this week, but it was not really photo ready, i.e. tasted good, looked odd.  But I will post some receipes in the coming weeks.
