Good morning! Well scale reads 287 pounds. Step counter read 4730 steps (2.37 miles). Doing good here so far. I don't want to think about it, but unfortunately my brain says otherwise, and still wondering if I can do this. I thought for sure last evening's episode with my son would have thrown me off course but I managed to stay focused. What will today bring as it is Monday and my weight loss group meeting and back to work.
Work is a difficult place for me as I work in a hospital. They have a fantastic kitchen and when we go for morning coffee everyone usually has something to eat. Today I am going to try and just get by with a cup of green tea. I have to learn that I do not need to do as everyone else does. The same goes for this evening. Usually we go out for supper after the meeting. Tonight I am going to try ordering a Steak Sandwich and eating only half of it. I suppose I could skip going but I enjoy the socialization. So these are my commitments for today.
3/4 cup rice krispies
3 oz 1% milk
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 canned peach
2/3 cup cooked macaroni
1 1/2 cups raw vegetables (green onion, cucumber, celery, green pepper)
2 oz mozerella cheese cubes
2 tablespoons of salad dressing
1 half piece of lemon square (1" wide x 2" long x 1.5" high) made with graham cracker crumbs, lemon pudding and whipped cream
Dinner (going to try eating out by knowing before hand what I will order)
Steak Sandwich with baked potato, vegetables and garlic toast
Garden salad with small amount of dressing
So far it has been a good day, will see what happens this evening. If I can make it through this challenge I should be good to go.
Well I did it, ate out and managed quite well. Ordered my dinner as above and put half the meat and potato in a take home container before I even began to eat. Thought I would eat a whole slice of garlic toast and ended up bringing half of that home as well.
Weigh in was good tonite, down 5.4 pounds from 2 weeks ago. Now I must explain here that I weighed in at 289.4 pounds tonight and it is different from what you see at the beginning of my blog each day. The reason being is that when I weigh at home each morning it is without clothes on. This gives me a better perspective of my actual weight as different sets of clothes can weigh different amounts. But it was a good lose and I am proud of myself for doing it and keeping it all together tonight. Atta girl!!!!
