This week I finally broke a barrier. It's a barrier I have been fighting with for at least 6 weeks now. I wanted my tens column number to drop. I was holding steady at the one or two( in the ones column)...depending on my week. Well when school started I was walking my son to school. Then he got moved to AM kindergarten. I decided I would walk him home. Then we hit triple digits heat by noon and there was no way I was walking in that. Then our air conditioner broke. I seriously must have sweated away what I lost, because yesterday I busted through that barrier! My tens column number finally went down! I am also comfortably fitting into the next size down. So what am I doing?
1. Three meals a day
2. 2 to 3 snacks a day--lately my mid day snack has been an apple
3. I was having a real hard time with night time nibbling. And I mean lots of nibbling despite having a snack. I have changed that too! When I feel the urge to nibble I chew gum, or eat carrots.
4. Since Rich had his surgery I was doing a lot the first few days. It has slowed down some, but I am still moving more.
5. Listening to my body's cues. Am I really hungry?
Next week Weight Watcher is doing something really cool! For every pound that is lost they are donating a pound of food to local shelters. Isn't that awesome! I want to try and lose a pound each week. With my birthday being tomorrow, that will be an interesting challenge! But I still want to try and add to this wonderful cause! It's a great motivator.
What motivates you?
