All week I was worried that I wasn't losing, especially the other day when I thought I gained. But then today, I get on the scale and it says 203.3 lbs. So I lost 2.4 this week. I'm very happy with that. It means I lost 10.1 lbs so far this month and have made my goal of losing 10 in February! Check!
Last night, I went out to dinner with the family and ordered salmon, steamed vegetables, and a baked potato (that I only picked at). I also had a salad with Italian dressing and one piece of bread. I didn't feel deprived at all and felt good keeping it healthy. I kind of wanted to order the fillet mignon that my mom got (which I had a bite of, and was so good), but the salmon was good too. Also, I didn't drink at all even tho everyone else did.
Today, my sister wanted to go to the Mexican restaurant, but I said I didn't want to. I said I just didn't want to not be able to have chips and feel guilty for whatever I ate, but that they should go anyway. My dad ended up having some leftovers from the fridge and said he wasn't hungry and didn't want to go, so they didn't. I have a feeling if I hadn't said I didn't want to go, we would have, so I kind of felt bad, but hey, I only control myself.
For this next week, my goal is to lose 3.4 lbs to put my weight at 199.9. I'm almost down 50 lbs! I plan on eating extremely healthy and working out every day.
Attitude of Gratitude: I have self-control! I can make good food decisions even when tempted. Why? Because my goal is more important than any piece of food.
