I was hoping for a huge loss this week. I wanted to lose all the weight I gained during two weeks of grieving and then some.
No such luck. I mean, a 2.9 pound loss is a good loss. I just wanted to undo my bump in the road completely and then some.
It's good. If I keep going at this rate, I'll hit 196 before I know it. I'd be lucky to lose 2.9 pounds every week.
I started strong this week. I almost got on an elevator without even thinking of it this morning, but as the door was opening, I remembered my pledge not to take the elevator this week. I also put everything I ate today into The Daily Plate. Everything. I even came in 177 calories below my target! I'm going to do it every day this week. Eventually, it will become a three-week challenge, but I'm going to try for one week first. Some people post everything they eat on their blog. I'm not trying to hide anything from you, but that's really not my thing. If you want to see what I'm eating, create a free profile on The Daily Plate and add me as a friend on the site. Here's a link to my profile.
What I will post is a screen shot of my end totals for the day.
I'm under on total calories, cholesterol (way under), and carbs. I'm over on fat (a lot of which I dabbed off the top of the pizza I made for dinner so I'm not too worried about it), sodium, sugars, fiber, and protein. The protein is fine and so is the fiber. I ate a lot of natural sugars today in things like milk and fruit, but I still need to control it somehow. Sodium is the big one though.
It's past my bed time, which brings me to my final point. Next week, my mini-goal is going to be to get at least 8 hours of sleep every single night for an entire week. I think a lot of sleep will go a long way to making me healthier and happier.
One pound left to go before I'm back where I started at the beginning of February. I can do that in a week.
