Rainy day but I'm feeling great. One of the nice things about embarking on this journey is the initial change of losing excess water weight. I can see it in my face and joints. I had a very good day yesterday eating healthy food and had little cravings until 10PM - why is that? I was all cozy watching the Apprentice when I got this urge to eat. This urge formed into a need for a health bar (I purchased the Kashi bar as they are low in fat, sugars and sodium). I tried to get it out of my mind and drank a gallon of water but it persisted to so I had a bar. Actually I had two. I knew it would not hurt my tally for the day (yes I track my calorie, fat, sodium, carb and protein intake daily). The second one took me over a little so if it meant I lost a pound in 2.5 days instead of 2 I was OK with that. After I felt very satisfied with my decision and my craving. I wish I could have stopped at 1 or even a 1/2 as this would have been a positive sign of controlling my craving or urge but at this stage I couldn't. I know this will come too.
So I hopped on the scale this am after a great night's sleep and behold, I lost 5 pounds... Notably water but wooohooo anyway (for those of you not familiar with wooohooo it is native to Ottawa and the cheer for the Senators). It is just what I needed to propel me through the weekend and got to my biggest loser weigh in on Sunday. I have to go to the county fair (that's what you say in the US I think) not because I like sloshing around the mucky ground waiting for kids on the rides but I am the parent chaperon for the first 2 hours. Then I can come back and go for a long walk with my dog Kosmo if the weather permits. Tomorrow is a boys sleepover with 6 11 year olds. The just want to play soccer outside and then play video games which I'm OK with. I'll be chilling reading a book, watching TV or on the net (probably blog surfing!
So down 5 and 76 to go... Mind over fatter is going strong. Be happy!
