Today at weigh-in I found out I'd lost another 1.2 lbs. I have almost recooped the 3+ lbs that I gained a few weeks back. It boosted my confidence to see a loss over 1 lb. Kinda made me want to keep going.

At the meeting, we talked about setting goals for September and writing down things we will do to try to reach our goals. I have decided to set a goal to lose 8 lbs in the month of September. That will be 2 lbs/week basically. I know that I need to step it up a gear and setting a goal like this might just help. I think I will do several things to reach this goal:
  1. Reduce the number of 100 calorie packs, manufactured foods I eat. Eat more naturally occuring foods such as fruits, veggies.
  2. TRACK my points. Stay within the recommended ranges (i.e., actually FOLLOW the WW plan!)
  3. Reduce the number of times I eat out in a week.
  4. Reduce the number of desserts and snacks I eat.
  5. Only eat when I need nourishment, not because I'm bored, happy, sad, etc.
  6. If making something at home, change the recipes to be healthier.
  7. Remember that although I look a lot better now, I still want to lose almost 20 lbs!!!

cheerleading for myself...

weighed in yesterday. lost 0.6 lbs since my last weigh-in august 7th. i think that's pretty good considering all the food i had for our anniversary, then eating out while on biz trips the last 10 days. i feel a renewed commitment. i only have about 20 more lbs that i want to lose. i know that i can do it. i want to get down another size. then i can really begin to SHOP! YAY!

revamping the diet

thinking about going on a "raw" diet where i eat nothing cooked for as long as possible. only fruits, veggies, nuts, etc. no meat. or maybe the protein shake thing again for 2 days. i need to jump start the weight loss again, stop eating 100 calorie packs of doritos and cheetos cuz i feel it's not as bad since it's only 100 cals. if i do something drastic like this it will psychologically shrink my stomach and maybe i won't feel the need to eat as much as i have been the last couple of weeks.

Ahhhhhhhhhh...gained 2.4 lbs this week. A little discouraged but deep down I know that I am just not trying as hard as I did when I started this diet. I need to be realistic and stay focused. I feel fat tonight.................ate too much in a state of depression after weighing in I think...
