When I started my weight loss journey, I was so focused. Tracking everything I ate, making sure I drank enough water and exercising. Fast forward 11 weeks and I have only lost a total of 3.8 lbs. I have a great week, a horrible week followed by a worst week. I get refocused, re-energized, follow the program and drop weight without a lot of effort. I've come to the realization that I'm an emotional eater and I do not put myself first. I resolve to do the following this coming week:
- Track my food and be honest about my points. That coffee that I drink in the morning is probably closer to 5 points than it is 3.
- Drink more water. Lots more water.
- Eat more fruit. They are 0 points. Seriously, I can get full and still have points leftover for a snack. That's truly a no-brainer.
- Exercise and give my Fitbit what it wants....10,000 steps, 10 flights of stairs, 1000 activity points and 5 miles a day. However I can get the stats, I'm getting them. Wii Just Dance, walk during lunch or hit the treadmill. Come hell or high water, I'm going to give it what it wants.
I can prepare for the week ahead, but won't pack my breakfast and lunch. Seriously? This week, I will make myself a priority.
I think I'm going to start posting my weight next week...
