The Saturday Weigh-In: 3

Losing-weight-naturally

Here it is in all it’s splendor.  The good, the bad and the ugly.  Well, it isn’t that dramatic, but this week was a bit schizo for me.  Let’s just say I let the bus run away a bit last Sunday, and boy was it nice!  Then I added up the calories (a few days later) and realized the damage. I did make a mental note that the days that I am “naughty,” the fruit and veg consumption is almost nill.  Coincidence? I think not.  Then I had the rest of the week to face.  Those calories had to be balanced somehow.  If you want to know how to re-bound after a binge or mistake or whatever, read this post.

Some notes:

1. If I don’t list the amount of a serving, it means 1 portion.  Example: Sourdough Toast – 1 slice, 130 cals

2. When I list “Coffee w/H&H” that means I had 1 cup of weakly brewed coffee with 2 Tbsp. Half and Half

3. STILL working on those vegetables.  I do have a plan though, and it may surprise some. I’ll get back to you on it.

4. Remember my goal: 1350 daily calories a day (combo of eating/exercise), 115 lbs total body weight. This is a four month challenge, and I won’t reach my goal, but I’m going to take a huge bite out of the apple.

5. I must say that this process of writing things down to post here has been a weight life saver.  If this were not the case I would be scratching my head today wondering why I had gained a pound instead of lost one this week.  It works folks, DO IT.

Current Weight: 140   Pounds Lost: 3

Measurements in Inches: Bicep 11 3/4; Bust 34 1/4; Waist 32; Hips 42; Thigh 24 (According to this I’m getting bigger? Muscles folks!)
