It's going to be a quick post today. I have to hurry because I'm dealing with a water leak under our house, and I have to go take a shower pretty soon that will require in and out as soon as possible as to not waste anymore water than necessary.
It's been a pretty stressful week, and that is apparent in my weight today.
Last week, I weighed 244.8lbs.
This week, I weigh 243.8lbs.
I've lost a pound this past week. A loss is a loss, but it's not exactly much to write home about.
And do you really want me to write the same old stuff?
I've decided that as long as the scale is moving in the right direction, I won't beat myself up too much. I know I could be doing a lot more, but the small efforts I am making are having some impact...and that's better than nothing.
I know some people will translate that last paragraph in to me starting to give up. That's NOT true. I'm just tired of being so negative about my weight loss. I know what work has to be done, and if I'm not doing the work I have no one else to blame but myself.
I'm pretty stressed out right now, and if I can still make it through that stress by watching what I eat, and managing to lose a little weight... I can be OK with that.
I am very happy that I made it through Halloween without going crazy on candy. That's a victory. There is and has been candy in my house since Halloween. I'm not going to say I haven't eaten any of it, but what I have eaten has been a small piece here and there. Far from overdoing it.
I have been packing my lunch each day, and I've been on a soup thing for a little over a week. I've been buying those low calorie, throw in a microwave and eat kind. They aren't the most healthy option in the world, but they don't hurt my calorie intake, they fill me up, and I love the variety of flavors that I can choose from. There aren't any more calories in a bowl of that soup than there is in a sandwich. So, I figure it's not that bad of a choice.
All in all, I'm just happy that there is some weight loss.
And, now I need to go and hurry and take a shower.
