Weight lost this week: 0.6 pounds
Weight left to lose: 52 pounds
I did really awesome last week. I ate tons of vegetables, and I stayed under my daily calorie limit almost every day. I snuck a weigh-in on Friday and I was already down a pound and a half. That meant I would probably lose almost 2 pounds my first week. How exciting!
Unfortunately, right after that came the weekend, and I ate the world. Seriously. And eating the world kind of undid my progress. A little bit. A lot. Fridays are usually “date nights” for Zach and me. We like to order some takeout, rent a movie, and spend some time together. It’s fine if I just do that on Friday, but unfortunately eating poorly begets more poor eating for me, so I kind of let Friday night spiral into a 3-day free-for-all.
My goal for this week is to have my normal Friday night indulgence, but not to let it bleed out and ruin the rest of my hard work. I want to exercise some control over the weekend and not treat it like a vacation. Wish me luck!
Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, and I have a perfectly grouchy post planned. In the meantime, you should check out what Emily had to say about the day because it’s hilarious.
Also, thank you for all of your kind words and support yesterday. You let me be completely self-indulgent and not a single one of you told me to put a sock in it already, and that means a lot. I’m still responding to your comments, but I just wanted you to know that you are the best!
