The day started good and ended badly. Did great until I got home from Bible Study and found out the internet wasn't working! EGADS, NOT THAT!!! I always catch up on blogs and tv shows while my girls watch an afternoon video and I had planned that today! My plan was messed up. And when my plans get messed up, I get messed up.
This is one of those behavior modifications I need to make. I need to not grab food to somehow "fix" the problems at hand, because it doesn't. I think I'm mentally okay now. Hubby got on the roof to fix the antenna to our internet (because I didn't want to wait until tomorrow afternoon!)
He's really the greatest.
Because my plans were "messed up" I couldn't bring myself to make dinner, so we ordered pizza and fried chicken. One of my twins will not eat pizza, but the other one loves it. I ate more than was good for me. I'm hoping that this will just give my metabolism a boost instead of making me gain weight.
I read a very good article today about slow weight loss.
I have been losing very slowly compared to my times on WW. I must remember that I gained it all back quickly. Losing it this way might make it more sustainable. I took the advice in the article and have made a chart of each week and how much I should weigh if I should lose (-2 per week). Then I can see if I'm on track. So far I am. It looks like this: - It's not actual weights, but what I should be weighing at that week.
August 10 - 290 (starting weight)
August 17 - 288
August 24 - 286
August 31 - 284
September 7 - 282
September 14 -280
September 21 - 278
September 28 - 276
October 5 - 274
If I haven't reached the number by the week it says, then I need to up my efforts. Right now I am a few pounds ahead of schedule, which will allow me not to freak out when I have a bad week, or day, like today.
