Not about my weight loss - or weight maintain. But I went the night without after dinner snacking. Huge, huge victory for me. Not only that, but when I was about to walk over and crack open a bottle of wine for an evening glass, I chose a Diet pepsi and water instead! When I went to bed, I actually felt good about my day for the first time in a really LONG time.
And it doesn't end there. I made split pea soup out of my Weight Watcher cookbook yesterday for my lunches this week. I finally picked up some steel cut oats which everyone seems to rave about. Made that yesterday too for my breakfasts for the rest of the week. I had it this morning with some cut up strawberries. Yummy! I also cut up all my veggies so they are easy to grab and munch throughout the day.
I think my goal of hitting 185 by Christmas is still possible. That would be 2 lbs a week from now until Xmas. Totally doable but I really am not going to punish myself if I don't reach it since it is a tight time frame. I just feel that if you set goals (especially in small increments) it gives you something to work towards and they feel more possible to reach. If I sit here and think, ugh I have 25-40 pounds left to lose then it gets discouraging. A 12 pound loss seems much more attainable.
You know what? After the planning I did and the eating healthy yesterday, I am in a great mood today! I really think that I am back on track after veering off slightly for a bit. Off to go have my soup!
