Weigh Day (week two)

Today is the day.  Another week has flown by and I was greeted by the scale this morning.  Why do I always feel like the scale is mocking me as I anxiously await stepping on it?  It is almost as if I can hear it laughing because I fear it.

Once again; however, I was pleasantly surprised as I squinted and tilted my head forward.  I have lost 4.4 pounds this week, which puts my total weight loss at 11.6!  This is so exciting!  I am really proud of myself for sticking with it even though I have had opportunities to make bad choices.  Friday night my husband’s best friend was in town and I made pizza and french fries for everyone.  However, I did not eat a single piece – not one.  Instead I made a salad and had some dried fruit and nuts with it.  Not eating pizza that night was worth it to me now, of course.

How did you do this week?  How can you make this week better?

I am going to stay strong and keep dancing every day with my chicklets.  Additionally, I am going to continue to stay away from refined carbs (white bread and regular pasta) and focus on eating whole grains.
