It struck me this morning as I was packing my lunch that my choices are looking a lot more colorful.
I have definitely increased the fruit and vegetable choices and reduced the processed foods in the past couple of weeks. I am finding sometimes that because of the point penalty for processed foods, I am turning to healthier alternatives more often. The downside has been not eating all my points some week days and then having an extra glass of wine or something to use them up.
I am on vacation the rest of the week after the 4th so I planned to weigh in a couple of days early so I wouldn’t have to go or be anywhere on Thursday. I was leaving early for a doctor’s appointment today, so I couldn’t go at lunch. I found a meeting near my house and went at the end of the day.
My body always seems to know it is weigh in day. In the morning at home I was down almost 4 pounds. For some explained reason I felt bloated at the end of the day and so the scale only gave up 1.8 pounds.
All in due time. If I keep doing what I am doing it will show up on the scale (and yes I have bad spelling texting thumbs).
I’ll update my weekly progress and goals when I post for Thursday.
