I pretty much got the diet down to a science, it’s basically the same routine everyday. Oatmeal for breakfast, fruit or veggie snacks, Lean Cuisine lunch, yogurt snack and a sensible dinner. Sometimes I mix it up, if I get tired of something or I have a craving. I really need to work on making exercise a priority. I was walking in the afternoons but lately my afternoons have been too busy with other activities.
Week 6 was hard because it was Valentine’s Day. My husband and I have been married for 13 years. We don’t do the over priced gifts or the over crowded restaurants on Valentine’s Day. We are perfectly content staying at home. He usually cooks me a nice dinner and I usually make dessert. This year he made me delicious steak and lobster dinner, better than I have had at any restaurant. He knows that I have been working really hard to lose weight, so he made a salad to go with it. Then I decided to make a chocolate cake for dessert and that is when my will power went out the widow. It was self sabotage. This is the first time in 6 weeks that I have fallen off the wagon. It happens, it’s over and I am back on track. I can’t change it, so I just have to learn from it and move on.
Week 5 I lost .5 pound and Week 6 I lost 1.5 pounds, so that gives me another 2 pound loss. It’s not as good as I want it to be but at least the scale is moving in the right direction.
