It’s been several days since I even weighed in and I think that was kind of on purpose. I mentioned I was getting bored and loosing focus and although I haven’t given up, I did take a break. The really cool thing is that I ate a bunch of stuff I really wanted, I didn’t gain any weight. I’m not even going to think of this last week as a bump in the road. I have realized that my road is going to be a winding path.
I think that I maintained my LTD (Loss To Date) because I’ve changed some fundamental habits. For example, I love potatoes! I especially like french fries. So I got myself a new Actifry and made myself one potato’s worth of no-fat fries. They were gooooooood! And very satisfying. I love pasta. So I made myself a batch of homemade pasta sauce from the season’s fresh tomatoes and some zucchini zoodles with this funky machine my daughter gave me. It was goooooood! And craziest of all – I ordered and ate a pizza! But instead of getting the 2 for 1 special and eating both, I got a single medium and spread those 6 tiny slices over 3 days. And it was goooooooood! I did pass on the ice cream and pie and loaf of garlic bread but I don’t feel deprived.
I still have a few days for the month and only need to lose a tiny bit to hit my 25 lb/month goal. And now I’m ready to focus again. I’m actually kinda looking forward to month 2 :).
