As you can tell by how I start this post, it was ready to be published on Wednesday, but here it is on Sunday and I’m finally hitting the Publish button. I had some serious motivation issues this week but today is a new day, and I’m moving forward!
It’s Wednesday again and you know what that means; it’s about to get real. In case you’re new, I’ve started a weight loss update for Wednesdays, a place to catch up and review the last week. Did I watch my calories? Did I have one piece of cake instead of three? You know, the usual. If you want to read why I need this update, check out my story here. If you struggle with stress eating or overeating, you can check out this post where I talk about my struggles.
I never want this to solely be a numbers game, so these posts are going to start off with non-scale victories. For this past week, I can count a few things as successes:
- I only ate fast food once.
- I incorporated more veggies into my meals, like celery and green pepper in some sloppy joes.
- I tried to drink one big glass of water every morning. I may have missed a morning or two, but overall my water intake went up!
- No real exercise routine yet, but I consciously got up out of my chair more often throughout my day.
Now we come to that part where I face the scale, using it as a benchmark for the week and not the be all, end all.
Last week’s weight: 223.2
This week’s weight: 222
Overall, I’m pretty pleased with how this week went. I know I’ve got a long road ahead of me, but I think I’ve got some good ideas to start. I made a much bigger effort to eat meals at home, which helps the waistline and the wallet, as well as drinking more water. A goal for next week would be to more consistently track my meals as well as move more throughout my day.
Thank you so much for joining me and sharing in my journey!
