Week 5: – 1.2
Total: –9.4 lbs.
I’m writing this while suffering from a major headache courtesy of entirely too much sugar and not enough water. Lesson learned: Stress eating a piece of pink birthday cake will not, in fact, make me feel any better.
I don’t have a lot to report this week. I could be eating better and working out more. I’m so close to a total weight loss that sounds like something substantial. I really thought this would be my TEN! POUNDS! week, but I am not whining. As long as things are moving in the right direction, I’m thrilled. Seriously. Have a mentioned that I’ve never successfully dieted before?
When we first started, I did a few major shopping trips and made sure that we had a ton of good food on hand. I need to do that again, because having only one or two fruit options and one decent snack choice in the house is making it really easy for me to choose pink cake.
If I have once piece of advice for anyone who’s thinking about dieting it would be this: Take a before picture. I mean, if my pants are looser and I’ve lost weight, then I probably look a little different, right? Something, somewhere is probably flatter or smoother or less dimply? And yet, I can’t see a bit of difference. Plus, I bought two swim suits this week. That’s all I have to say about that.
