This is only day 5 of my weight loss journey and it has been all over the place.
On Sunday and Monday I was very hungry because my body is so used to the mindless eating and such a large amount of calories being consumed but I made it through those days with lots of water, gum and pure determination.
This week has also brought with it a test for me because I have a particular family member who likes to cause trouble and that person decided to target my husband and I on Monday. I wanted to run for the nearest store immediately and buy some chocolate but I resisted the temptation and it soon went. I know I am an emotional eater so I am keeping a close check on this.
I have been eating very healthy all week and feeling great! Feeling great physically and so in the game.
I was out of town for a day of shopping yesterday and was able to stick with my plan....usually when I go out of town I eat all kinds of stuff (read.... MacDonald's Fries, donuts, milkshakes and family size chocolate bar for the drive home) because we just don't have the fast food and availability here on the Island so I take advantage of all the things I feel deprived from. What crazy ways our minds think! My eating for the day away was as follows... breakfast at home and then Tim Horton's coffee for the drive, Subway Turkey breast sub loaded with vegetables and a small chocolate milk for lunch and for the drive home a bought a container of fresh fruit from the grocery store.
I have began working out also this week. I purchased new shoes and a great DVD (that I have used before until I wore it out) and I am anxiously awaiting there arrival.
All in all so far this week I have had a few Non-scale victories! YEAH!
