Weigh-In Wednesday

Burst into Summer Challenge @ Sisterhood of the Shrinking JeansNo change this week. Which I'm okay with. We spent the weekend camping with The Man's family, which, as you can probably imagine, involved a lot of sitting around and eating.

Personally, I don't believe lunch is necessary when you only finish breakfast at 11 am, but obviously not everyone is of the same opinion!! The powers that be cook provided three square meals a day, so that's the way it was. I tried to make sure I limited my portions ~ especially at lunch! ~ but it was still more food than I really needed, given the general lack of activity.

And then the night before last (which is the night before weigh-in for me), a girlfriend and I went out for supper in the town near the camp where we'd just dropped our kids off for the week, so that didn't help either.

But I'm happy. It's been a fun week with lots of great food and I haven't gained, so I feel pretty lucky, actually!!

Weigh-In Wednesday

Burst into Summer Challenge @ Sisterhood of the Shrinking JeansOkay, so...

I have a bit of a confession to make.

I didn't actually step on the scale last week.

I forgot.

So I just kinda fudged the number.

I figured if I reported a loss of 0.6, I could easily lose it the following week if need be. You know, a realistic number where I wouldn't get caught in my lie.

But I kinda got caught anyway.

Because this week, I am suddenly down 3.4 pounds!

And y'all KNOW there's no stinkin' way I actually lost that much in just one week!
But I can chalk up that success ~ over the last TWO weeks Flirty 2 ~ to virtually no snacking of any kind (it happened just one evening over the last week and a half, and it was two large pancakes smothered in butter and swimming in syrup.... mmmmmmmmm, delicious!) and really watching my portions at mealtimes.

And the nicest thing is, I haven't really been thinking about it much.  It's really only crossed my mind a couple of times when I wanted to eat late at night and I forced myself to be content with a cup of green tea.  I have not gotten my daughters involved in meal- and snack-planning yet like I said I wanted to, but one thing I've noticed myself doing is making sure I eat only what I give them or tell them to eat.  And sometimes I just don't, even when they are.

(Since June 1)
So maybe I'm finally getting somewhere!

Weigh-in Wednesday

Burst into Summer Challenge @ Sisterhood of the Shrinking JeansWoo-hoo!  I'm down 0.6!  It's not a lot, but at least it's the right direction.

I am still not into the swing of summer holidays ~ the girls finished school a week ago yesterday and we were gone for the long weekend, so there's not much of a routine yet.  And I'm also finding I don't have much time for blogging!

Hope all y'all had a great week!
