2 Weeks of Progress

Whoops, forgot to post last week. I'm happy to report that even though I'd been feeling live I've hit a little plateau, or at least a wall in my motivation/discipline, the scale still shows good things. I lost .3 pounds last week, and then this week the scale was down another 1.9 pounds. Hooray!

I think the motivation problem stems from 2 things... first, I've been getting a little bored with some of my meals lately, so now I'm making an effort to try some more new things. And, second, we had 2 special occasions at work last week so I had a bad lunch, and then cupcakes 2 days in a row. And darn those cupcakes -- cuz I can go without sweets for a long time, but once you take a bite, it just makes you want MORE. So I was a bit dissatisfied with my healthy little snacks after eating the sugary-buttery-fatty goodness of 2 cupcakes. But, I've moved on and am doing better again. Thankfully the scale was forgiving!

Chugging Along

Even though last week was rough, with a couple of bad days for lunches due to work schedules, I still lost 1.9 pounds. And that means I'm at just under 10 pounds lost total. Hooray! That's good motivation to keep on going.

Didn't Expect That

I just weighed in after 5 days at a conference, at which I *tried* to be good but it wasn't always easy with all restaurant or catered meals... and I was expecting the worst on the scale. BUT - I lost another .9 pounds. Hooray! It's nice to see that downward trend continuing. And now I'm back home and back to my routine, even though there are several events this week that'll tempt me with catered food again... but this is a good way to start the week.
