So, this morning I stepped on the scale and like rays of sunshine coming down in the bathroom, the scale finally went down a pound! Yes, I’m not crazy! I can actually lose weight! I didn’t think I’d ever be so excited about one pound but I am! This week it felt like no matter what I did I still felt bloated and fat. But, finally the scale is moving down! Can I get a “Hallelujah”?!
Once again, I’m saying no to temptations and it it’s starting to actaully feel good and keep me focused. Why, when people in your office are competing in a biggest loser challenge would you bring things such as cinnamon swirl cake and doughnuts?! I guess unless they are trying to tempt people so they can win? But, that would take a lot of will power to compete in a weight loss challenge and travel with doughnuts in your car..just saying.
I might not have a handle on the exercise yet, but I’m at least improving what I put in my body drastically. I’m so happy to say that so far Mon-Fri, every day I have had at least 2 servings of fruits and 5 servings of veggies! (And no, none of those servings of veggies were french fries) 🙂 In fact, I’m thinking back and making sure, but I haven’t had anything fried since last week. I’m sure my arteries are doing the happy dance and feeling some relief.
Unfortunately I’m really trying to not self-sabatoge but what do I do when friends and family want to go out to eat? Do I get what I normally like and just eat smaller portions? I don’t really want to order something I know I’m not going to like. I love Mexican food. It’s true and On The Border is my favorite place to go. But, you know if I add up the chips, salsa, guacamole, fajitas, and dare I say a margarita, that’s my whole day’s worth of calories almost in one meal!!! What’s a girl to do? Actually, I might just skip On the Border all together tonight and just go to the movie…popcorn is way better than that meal and much cheaper.
But, does anyone else have tips for eating out with friends? Any suggestions? I really want to stay on the right track. Any of you who have lost weight..what do you do in social situations like this, parties and eating out? Any help is greatly appreciated. ~Cahrity 🙂
