Weigh in Day--Week 3
This week has been a little more difficult when it comes to my weight loss goals. I had cravings for the first time since starting the diet... and my body feels tired from all the exercise, so my daily exercise routing has been a bit more challenging. Because I had managed my calories so well, the days I had cravings, I just went ahead and got the food. And I was able to stay close to my calorie goals. Yes, I did go over those days, but I think deprivation is the worst, because if you don't feed your craving, you will totally splurge eventually and knock yourself way off your goals. I have exercised every day this week, but I think my body is telling me I need to rest. So today, I took a slow stroll with the dog to the front of my apartment complex and back. it took all of about 10-15 minutes, but I think that's all the exercise I will do today. Oh, and the good news is--I lost 2 1/2 more pounds! So that's a total of 6 in the last 3 weeks! Slow and steady wins the race! I have a very good friend who is a nutritionist, and she's helping me with my goals, so I thank her very much for that. She knows me, understands me, and is not going to make me eat anything I don't like! That's important! I'm hoping to keep up the momentum! If I keep it up, then in another 4 weeks, I will be halfway to my goal! Yay me!
I will all of you luck in your goals! If I can do it, anyone can!
