No weight loss this week, but also no weight gain. I’m not disappointed. We enjoyed family weekend with all three girls so of course that meant lots of eating, but I didn’t do any serious damage to my weight loss plan. That’s something to celebrate!
Since several people have asked about my weight loss program, I thought it might be a good time to summarize what’s worked for me. This will also be a good reminder of where I need to focus in the coming weeks to meet my final goal.
- Log all food and exercise in Lose It! every day. What better way to be conscious of eating decisions.
- Weigh myself every morning. This helps me keep a pound from becoming five…ignoring does not work for me.
- Exercise. Even when I don’t want to…I need to do this at least four days a week. My secret weapon is walking while working at my treadmill desk. That’s why getting back to work next week will be a good thing for my weight goals.
Of course in addition to these three keys, eating a good breakfast with protein and a burrito bowl for lunch helps keep me on the right track.
I’m shooting for 1/2 pound this week to get back on the right track!
