Day Three

Well, yesterday could have been so much worse. Not gauging my hunger = making myself feel like throwing up and then a late supper, could have led to a massive binge. Seriously. But even though I ate more than I should have – it was “better for me”. I call that a win.

I had made a small promise to myself not to weigh in daily – and to do it every Monday, because as we know – we fluctuate in our weight and it can be dis-heartening to see it go up, even if it’s .2 pounds. That’s not the way it’s suppose to go. So I didn’t want to sabotage myself before even trying to lose the weight I need too. Well, I weighed myself today. I know I shouldn’t have but I did. So after 2 days of trying to eat better, I’m down 3 pounds. Now yes, the first week or two are AWESOME for weight loss because you end up losing water (I think that’s what it is) – but in my case I think it’s a matter of being more conscious of what I’m eating = eating less = my body going hell yeah this feels good I’m going to lose some pounds. That’s how I like to see it :)

I am not going to lie and say that this is going to be smooth sailing… because every day is a challenge for me.
Today is again, no exception. Tonight our daughter has a band recital. I work until 5pm, and we have to be out the door by 6:30pm. Have I planned anything? Not really. I was going to do a slow cooker of the Pot Roast I have in the fridge, but the hubby mentioned that there just may not be enough time to get it all sorted out. Which he’s right – so save that for tomorrow.

What did we end up having?

McDonalds.

Dagnabit.

I had a two cheeseburger meal, two cheeseburgers, a medium fries and a medium Ice Tea. You could say in one fell swoop I managed to totally screw my calories with this one. I didn’t necessarily need the fries – but I ate them. It was really good too – gah – I swear they put something in their food to make you crave it.

So by the end of the day this is where I stood:

Totals 2,130 264
Your Daily Goal 1,340 168
Remaining -790 -96
Calories Carbs

If every day were like today…   You’d weigh 254.9 lbs in 5 weeks

You bet I felt like I’d fubar-ed myself on this one, but I know I’ll have days like this.  I just have to make the decision that this one day isn’t going to screw up the rest of the days in front of me.  Move on, Move on, Move on.
