This has been a good week! I just felt so much better. I had the 5.5 pound weight gain when I got back from vacation and was a little worried. I knew from eating out I had consumed too much salt. I really didn't think I had done horribly on my diet and so 5.5 pounds seem extreme. I really felt it was mainly water weight, but I knew I had to get serious and get it back off.
Early in the week I had already knocked off most of the gain so that made me feel much better. So when I weighed in today I was looking for a better number. And I got it!!
I may have lost the two weeks around vacation, but I did great this week. I feel like I mentally am back on track with my eating. I expect to have good results! This week's stress has made me forget about food so that hasn't hurt, just hasn't given me much time for anything.
I haven't been exercising as I should be. I have gotten some walking in this week and that's about it. I walked around the field at the baseball game while I was waiting for the game to start. I love exercising, I just seem to feel like I don't allow time for it. I really need to think about that now.
My goal for next week is to continue eating well, and get in exercise at least 4 days, with additional walking.
I had my son take a picture of my favorite pair of size 12 jeans. I think they are going to have to go by the wayside. I was wearing them yesterday and I felt like one of those kids who wear their jeans in the sag style. The crouch felt like it was hanging to my knees. I kept pulling them up. I liked them before because they were always comfy. Not to tight around my middle!!! So time to move down a size, at least with this pair!
