Week 1: -6 pounds</span>
DH and I ate out two nights in a row. The first night I was really impressed with myself - I showed major self-control, and took more than half of my entree home!! My water comsumption, which is something that I struggle with, has been really good. I'm getting at least 8 glasses a day, but am averaging around the 10 glass mark.
My biggest struggle with the new eating plan is that when I see points left over at the end of the day I sometimes feel like I *need* to eat them, even though I'm not hungry. I haven't caved yet, and have learned that a cup of carrot sticks will go a long way between meals.
OK, so, this week wasn't too bad. I allowed myself to sway a little - still didn't use all of my weekly flex points, but I was craving chicken fingers and french fries. DH and I went out for a bite, but I didn't eat all the fries, after about 15 or 20 of them I was satisfied.
I'm getting better at planning ahead with my meals, and making healthy choices, and learning what some low point snack foods are that I actually feel like I'm indulging a bit.
So, I'm almost finished my third week, and it has been pretty rough.
I don't know if it's PMS (likely, very very likely) or what, but I just want to pig out. I have been doing pretty good at staying within my point allowance each day, and I'm making pretty healthy choices for the most part, I just want more.
I've stocked my fridge with easy to grab, good choices for snacks and meals so I don't sabotage myself. But, I'm fairly sure that when Monday rolls around I probably won't have seen a loss. . . and wouldn't be surprised if I saw a gain. I know that I've lost more than the average of 2 pounds per week, in fact I'm almost downabout 10 pounds, so I should feel great about my accomplishment. But I can't help like feeling I'm just not trying, but I know that isn't the case.
I'm chalking it up to a rough week, and hopefully the next couple of days are better.
