Weighing In on Weighing In: Week 2

So, it’s week two of my diet. I should be embarrassed but I’m posting anyways. I have not strayed from points, haven’t cheated, and have continued to walk daily. In a previous post, I mentioned that I gained 2 lbs and thought I had been doing everything right. I was concerned with how I was doing the program and was given a little advice to try.

What I’m doing: Eating below my daily points.
Suggestion: Eat ALL the dailies. Your body feels like it’s starving so try fueling it.

What I’m doing: Not dipping into my weekly points. (I’ll hoard them but not use them, I don’t know why)
Suggestion: Eat some weeklies. It’s ok they are there for a reason.

Some other suggestions are that my walks are putting on muscle which weighs more than fat, water bloat from salt intake, and drink water. I’m drinking water but I do love my salt. I’m going to try the eating techniques. If that doesn’t work I’ll keep trying but at least I lost what I gained. So, I’ll try harder and hope that next week’s weigh-in experience is a little better.  It’s ok, it’s ok, it’s ok. You’re in it for the long haul (just wish the distance wasn’t as long).

As for the recipes I tried, I didn’t get to take pictures but one of my favorites was the Slow Cooker 3 bean chili, blueberry sauce and yogurt, and chicken with veggies on a corn tortilla. The awesome find would have to be the chicken and apple sausage. 2 points for one link and it filled me up with scrambled eggs.

  1. This is one time when saving is bad! Apart from anything else, you might find you need to cut calories later for a while if you plateau so starting with less cuts your fall back space. Good luck! Use your excess for a treat. My best friend saved calories for a bar of chocolate every day and lost over 100lbs total 😊

  2. I hear your struggle. I’ve been up and down for 6 months. I’m guessing things like depression, not moving, not staying hydrated enough, and insomnia are my downfalls. My coach says “one day at a time”, but even that is a struggle most days.

    1. I understand kiddo. One day at a time is easier said than done. As long as we try, I’m happy with that. If it’s something as small as changing my position from one side to another I accomplished something. I try to choose one thing different I can do a day and that helps. If all you can do is nothing, do nothing in a different position. I get it and than you for sharing.
