Back on the Bandwagon
weight loss: 20 lbs.!!!!
This past month has been rather chaotic. The family had around of a respiratory crud go around (and it looks like we're on round two). I find that this tends to be the number one thing that gets in the way of my acquiring new eating habits. When I feel awful, grocery shopping doesn't get done (and then when the kids are feeling awful, it doesn't get done either, and I'm stressed....when I'm sick, I miss those old single days where everyone would just leave me alone!!!) and so fast food becomes the option again. Along with that, nothing clears a terrible, achy, mucus-coated throat like a good soft drink.
Thankfully, I didn't gain much. Maybe about two pounds. I also lost an inch around my waist. If nothing else, 2 months of new eating habits has changed the WAY I eat, and the amount. I've found I don't snack as much, and I am still likely to choose options that are at least closer to what I should be eating.
This week, though, my choices have been better, and I've lost three pounds, and that puts me at a 20 lbs. loss! I am so thrilled. I don't think I've ever managed to lose 20 lbs. before. I want to keep going. Now that the weather is getting better, I might be able to motivate myself to actually go walking.
