BAM! Whatcha think about that!?!
This seems to be my pattern lately, I lose a little, gain a little, lose a fraction (repeat) and then BAM I lose 5 or 6 pounds. Cest la vie.
This week is proof that you can make good choices and lose weight.
It's proof you can lose weight during your time of the month.
It's proof you can have one meal that is as far from healthy as possible and still lose weight if you are making good choices otherwise.
It's proof you can eat a 450 calorie cookie and still be okay if you work it into your calories for the day/week.
Was every meal perfect this week? Heck no, but I made conscious choices. At work there is always left over food from lunch meetings and events - this week I had two boxed lunches from Panera. The first I had a salad, chips and cookie (the 450 calorie one), the second was a half sandwich, half salad and a peach I brought from home. I immediately gave my cookie away and threw the baguette away. I've said over and over, it's about moderation. And it's about being honest with yourself about what moderation means. Every cookie is not "just one cookie".
14 more pounds to my Garmin Goal! I'm ready!
