Yesterday was my WI day. I lost .4 lb and am 158.6 lbs. Its kinda amazing to me, especially when I sit here and read that number written out.
I have written about how I have been having some dedication troubles. I have definitely gotten off my path to success and stalled out at 160 lbs. This week I am re-committing myself to living healthy. My friend Dacia over at ThirtyThreeandCounting.com is a constant inspiration to me. She has so much dedication to her journey of weight loss and healthy living. So, in an effort to get back on track I am following in her footsteps and going for my #7daychip. Basically, you set your own goals and try to stick with it for 7 days in a row. Click here is more information. Dacia just rocked it and got her #30daychip and is working toward #100day chip. Holy crow!!!!
For me, my #7daychip goal is to stick with the Weight Watchers plan all seven days. I know that might seem so easy, but I have been having a hard time doing it. I keep finding “special occasions” every week to stray from the plan. I know things come up every week. I think every weekend until the New Year there is something, a birthday party, a holiday, or a gathering of some sort. I CAN NOT let that be an excuse to eat poorly and give up.
Last night, there was a get together at a bowling alley. So, I planned for it. I ate more fruits and veggies during the day and less of my points in order to be able to enjoy my night out with the ladies. I also ate dinner before I left the house so I wasn’t starving upon arrival. With that planning when two beautiful, delicious smelling pizzas showed up I didn’t gobble the whole thing up. I actually didn’t have a slice until about an hour later, when I was actually hungry. I have to write that again. I didn’t immediately eat half a pizza. I watched other eat theirs but knew I was full and listened to myself. The Kathleen of last week would have totally had a few slices, full or not, simply because it was there.
If you feel like you are slipping on a goal you have made don’t despair. You can do it!
