Happy Weigh In

I lost 1.6 lbs this week, which brings me to 169.5. I am happy to be in the 160s again. May it only go down from here! Also, since I started really being healthy again, 4 weeks ago, I've lost 10 lbs!

I have been eating pretty well and working out, mostly on the elliptical, but I did go for a run/walk a few times.

Last night was so hard. Our roommate bought a dozen cookies from Subway. If you haven't had Subway's cookies, don't even try them because they are beyond awesome and you will be bitter if you have to say no to them. White chocolate macadamia is so my fave cookie, and then they have a raspberry white chocolate cookie that's even better... So good. They are 6 points. And I said no!Of course, I thought about them all night and they are still there this morning but no.

I also made banana muffins because we had to use up some over ripe bananas. We didn't have applesauce or anything to make it a healthy version, so I just made it with sugar and flour, and also said no to this. Although this morning, I did have one muffin top and threw away the rest.

I saw this interesting quote this week that made me think. Mixed feelings on it- first thought was, "Yep, that's true!" Other thoughts were along the lines of, that's sad, losing weight can really be torturous, such a mental game...

Gwen Stefani on staying fit - “There is no secret: You just have to eat healthy, work out, and torture yourself!”

It's not really torture - it's just not fun all of the time!

Great WI! Gwen Stefani is right - it takes hard work & effort, but so darn worth it.

I don't agree with the "torture" part - not at all. If living healthy is no fun, why do it?

(And it is totally acceptable, IMHO, to have a regular muffin and some fruit for breakfast every now and again.)
