Note: I have updated the frequency of posting my measurements to once a month (I am not sure why I thought I was going to do them every other week…I don’t expect to drop size that fast, or at least not fast enough to make that much of a difference in the measurements).
I can’t express how exciting it is to see a smaller number when I get on the scale! I’ve been really good with eating at least a full lunch and dinner all week (and something for breakfast, though usually not what most would consider a “full” breakfast). Last night I had dinner at friends’ which wasn’t the healthiest of meals (nachos and jalapeño poppers), but I kept the portions very small. It will be a challenge keeping things healthy when eating with friends…something I do on a fairly regular basis. We’ll see how it goes and how frequent it actually happens. From there I will decide how to handle it in the future. I did skip the potato chips that were out – talk about a challenge! I love salty snacks. Ultimately, I found I didn’t really want any of it and I had an upset stomach all night. I am wondering if that was just a one-time thing due to something else going on or if my body is starting to crave better foods.
Speaking of breakfast, time to go fix something to eat. Later is day two of week two – wish me luck!
