Hi all! How was your weekend? My weekend was good with some pretty amazing 75-80 degree weather. A few of you have asked about my progress this go round and how I am doing. I never know if I should share my weekly weigh in or not but I’m always happy to if you all are into reading about it. Do you all want the update each week?
I am really feeling in a groove and can say I lose more weeks than not but not every week is perfect. I’m ok with that because neither is my journey….for me, it’s all about persistence over perfection and that is what makes it a lifestyle for me. I’ll just continue losing to my goal then continue doing exactly what I do now. I never feel like I’m deprived or missing out this way and it makes it “ok” to fit treats into your daily points.
All that being said, I lost 1.8 lbs at weigh in this week bringing my total loss to date to 24 lbs – 1 lb from my short term goal! I’m totally going for that this week.
I truly try to focus on eating right 80% of the time so I can feel good about the treats I have 20% of the time. And sometimes, you just have to have frozen yogurt for dinner when your husband says we should make that our Summer Sunday dinner tradition.
