... sticking to one's food and exercise plan = weight loss. Who knew?
I will admit that this is not the most mind-blowing of insights, especially after spending so long at this particular rodeo, but it is very gratifying to see positive results from my first disciplined week back from the wilds of Snackville.
This week I stuck to my guns, more or less, and kept the hitherto rampant snacking under control. I also upped my workouts back to their previous level to dial up the challenge. The result: 1.7 pounds down this week to 197.4 pounds.
Depressingly, I am still around 8.7 pounds higher than my previous low weight, but on the good side I am down from my recent high of 199.1 pounds. 1.7 pounds down is right on track for where I want to be after the week I have had, and to get this result during the Christmas week (or as I like to call it, Food-a-palooza), is a major triumph.
I have to stop thinking those "if only..." thoughts, and focus on the good results I am having now. The plan for this week will be to try and stay focused on my plan, and build on my loss of this week.
Onward and downward!
