Weigh In

Well, it's really better than I thought. I lost 1.2 pounds this week.

Reflecting on the week, I could've done much much better, and this week I plan to. Last week I had a few downfalls;

1. I did alot of baking. This doesn't seem like a downfall because I love it, but when you factor in the licks of this finger or spoon or that, it really starts to add up. I don't forsee alot of baking this week, so I should be good on this front.

2. Last week I was having a munchie week, so I allowed myself to eat carrots freely. At least they were carrots right? When I went to the fridge and had the urge to grab something, I would grab a handful of carrots. Well while that was a much better decision than anything else I could've eaten, they still add up.

3, Ummm, yesterday. It started with picking and turned into licks of this and that, and into eating a bit too much of some things (like homemade granola...the devil in disguise). I feel like I got a reprieve this week by losing, so I will take that as a get out of jail free card.

4. I only got to the gym twice, this is only one less that my normal, but still, that's alot of calories I could've burned! So I definately want to get to the gym 3, if not 4 times this week!

Ok, so there you have it, my confessions for the week. Now I get to start over! That's what I love about life...everyday is a new day!

Hope everyone has a great Sunday!

congrats on your loss! I think you need to move the carrot munching into the "Things I did Right" column though. Seriously. Good idea to review the week though. I do in my WW 12 journal and I find it helps. You have to be sure to review the good things too though.

1.2 pounds - HOLY SMOKES!! Hey maybe all the peace and quiet at home helped too???

Be proud of your loss and the fact that you binged on carrots. Are you still journaling - I miss your menus - I stole a lot of good stuff from you....just so you know - LOL!

Hugs and for the record, I'm incredibly jealous of your loss - carrot stick eating, baking bad ass that you are!

Congrats on the loss!

Carrots - that is NOTHING to fear. We did not gain weight by eating carrots. Carrots are good, good for you, and not to be considered an evil. Periodendofstory.

(I have some strong beliefs about carrots - they're my "grab it when I'm munchy" food. It works really well for me.)

GO YOU!

Congrats on the loss, that's awesome. And way to go with the snacking on carrots - if you gotta snack, that's what you should be eating (now if I could only follow my own advice). Good luck on your goals this week, I love when people make them realistic....

A loss is a loss is a loss, girl!

And homemade granola is sooo yummy and soooo easy to pick at! At least that's how it is at my house.
