I decided 4 weeks ago that I wanted to lose 10-15 lbs. of weight that has crept on over the years. Then I posted 2 weeks ago that I had already lost 9 lbs.
The week after that I was on the road, having slumber parties with Smockity. Have you tried her pizza?! She melted a stick of butter in each pan before she spread the crust, and we were all in heaven. I ate 5 pieces for lunch.
I did not lose weight that week. I blame Smockity. Of course there was also a wedding and plenty of good friends with other friends, but mostly I blame Smockity’s pizza.
When I got home, I found myself slipping back into old habits. Instead of waiting for my stomach to growl, I ate when it was time to eat or when somebody offered me something appealing. I took Rachael out for a big, juicy birthday cheeseburger and shake. Hubby took me out to eat not once, not twice, but three times to celebrate our anniversary.
I didn’t lose weight last week either.
In light of my performance over the past 2 weeks, I’m very thankful that I haven’t gained back what I lost. I’m still down by 9 lbs. and I’m happy about it. Now I want to get back on track and lose more!
If you’re working on losing weight, how have you done? Win, lose or draw?
