BIG loss this week — I’m down 3.2 lbs!
It is really weird to lose weight this time of year. I’m so used to hitting the reset button every January 1.
I hope to hit my official 25 pound milestone next week. I get a charm for that one.
I had an emotionally draining week after finding out my cat Hank has cancer. Instead of drowning my sorrows with food, it seems the stress made me eat less. So, this loss was a silver lining to an otherwise hard week.
HOWEVER… I did have a moment where I wanted to eat my feelings and go get some french fries and a double cheeseburger when I passed by a McDonald’s. But I knew eating that would only make me feel worse. One moment of mindfulness kept me out of the drive thru. I consider that a victory.
I did eat a few mint chocolate chip Klondike bars that my roomie picked up. We decided those are no longer allowed in the house though! Too tempting. I enjoyed them while it lasted. Still not as bad as McD’s. This may be the only eating plan where two Klondike bars won’t keep you from losing 3 pounds.
