Hot for the Holidays Week 2

I love my scale this morning! I didn't have high hopes for my weight loss this week so I was excited to see I was down 1.5 pounds. Woo hoo! Hopefully the weight loss will help me stay on track, especially over the weekend. Last weekend I gained 1.5 pounds. Eek! So actually I've lost 3 pounds since Sunday. But I'm only down 1.5 pounds from last week's weigh in. Does that makes sense? Am I rambling? It's Friday. Rambling is bound to happen when the only outside contact I've had all week was the cranky librarian on Tuesday.

I can't say that I feel that I earned my weight loss. I made better choices in the food department but not great ones. I made homemade bread last night (hello carbs!) and I ate a lot. The kiddos have been sick this week so we missed out on our family walks. I did cut back on Mountain Dew and chocolate which obviously helped a lot. Going into next week I have a few goals.
  • Eat breakfast every day
  • Remember to take my thyroid medicine to give my metabolism a kick in the pants
  • Drink lots of water
  • Get moving!
Happy weekend to everyone!

I like your plans, especially this one: "Drink lots of water"

Water is very important. Best wishes.

I've only had three soda's since the end of August...I read somewhere that each 12 oz. can has the equivelent of 2 cups of sugar in it. Congrats on your loss and your goals for the week!

Great job on the weight loss! I had a very similar week. 1.5 lbs. lost but didn't exactly feel like I earned it. Bad eating due to sick kids but did make it to the gym. Good luck this week.

Congrats on the weight loss!

I ate a few too many carbs as well. Sometimes you just have to I guess! :)

Good luck on the weight loss this week!
