Finally made it to my meeting last night. It felt good to take time out for myself again. I didn't go last Thursday because my sweet husband was working on our oldest's vehicle and wasn't done in time for me to go and my car was driven by our oldest to work too far away. My goals this past week was to hit 10,000 steps or more each weekday and to track whatever I ate. There were days that this was very difficult for me and I don't fully understand it. I had to repeatedly remind myself that no one else would see my tracker unless I showed it to them. I am proud to say that I tracked EVERYTHING that went in my mouth last week. While all of my days were not perfect and many were over my Daily Smart Points, I tracked it. I was rewarded on the scale last night with a 3.2 pound loss. I can't say that it will happen each week, but I'm proud of my efforts last week and that the scale showed it. Going into next week, I am hoping to make the time to incorporate other workouts in my day.
My last weigh in of 2016, I was at 200.2 pounds. My first weigh in of 2017, I was at 199.4. I am down a total of 4 pounds during the 4th week of the year. I am not going to complain about that. Just one step at a time I am learning to focus on real food while still making sure that I track. It definitely helps that I am meal planning more. I am determined to make changes for me. What are you doing to help yourself?
