Weigh Day Vol. 3
Last week was, well, the start of a new cycle, so it didn't go as great. I still tried and mostly stuck to the tracking, but there were definitely some comfort eating moments. There also may have been some half off Easter candy to blame for that. All in all, it was one of those weeks where I was just happy if I tracked some to most of my food.
Luckily, the two weeks evened each other out or something, I was down 2.8 pounds, which brought me to having lost 5% of my weight so far. That's a good milestone in itself, as I've read that the health benefits of weight loss can start with losing as little as 5 to 10% of your body weight. I also keep noticing small changes in how my clothes fits. Its probably not noticeable to anyone else, but its nice to me at least.
One hitch in the weight loss so far has been that I've been relying on processed, packaged, and fast food. Its just easier to keep track of points that way. Those aren't always the best or healthiest foods though, and last time around I had trouble with this same thing. I have two weight watchers cook books and, you know, the whole internet at my disposal, so I'm hoping I can pick up cooking again. Now if I could just figure out how to meal plan and keep it affordable too. Oh well, I have to start somewhere!
Here's hoping that the losing keeps going! Thanks for stopping in this week.
