Down 2 lbs today! Yippee! I looked over my journal for the past week, and to be honest, I really think its getting the veggies in in the morning that's doing it for me. I'm definitely sticking to WW points (old habits die hard) but I'm doing it differently this time.
For instance, last year one points, I'd hoard and hoard so that I could have 3 glasses of wine. This year, I'm trying to limit alcohol to one day a week. Last year, probably at least 6 or 7 points a day went to junk, candy, fake desserts, or some other crap. This year, I'm limiting sugar and most of my points go to real whole foods.
I like it better this way. I like how I feel and how I know I'm doing this right. Yes, I'm still allowing myself treats and yes that includes a big vat of chips and queso earlier this week, but that's the only treat. Or maybe one of only two treats. But still. You get my point.
Now I only have two weeks-ish until my Feb 14 goal of 185. That means I have to lose 2.5 lbs in two weeks. This should be do-able, but I'm going back to D.C. to visit some friends the weekend before Valentine's Day, and I'm scared that might throw me off track. So I'm going to move up my goal date to Thursday, February 9. If I don't make it, that's okay. If I do, that's great. It's all about keeping it moving while staying realistic. :)
