Well, this was a tough week (which I will blog about in the next couple of days), eating-wise. Actually, it was a FABULOUS week, fun-wise. Spent most of four days out of town, partying, eating with friends. Had a dessert get-together at our house with neighbors last night. I was hoping to just hold steady this week and not gain anything back.
SURPRISE!!! I lost two pounds. I really did try to be good, but I didn’t think it was good enough. *whew*
Three weeks down, seven pounds gone. Picturing a stack of seven pounds of butter, I think I should look much thinner. Oh, well, the scale is making me happy and I’m still motivated to keep counting calories. It’s encouraging to know that you can deviate from the straight and narrow dieting path, eat the same foods as everyone else, and be okay. Moderation is my mantra. I even have a nut log, chocolate truffles, and a piece of Dreamsicle Cake left over from last night, and they aren’t calling my name out loud. (Well, maybe just a soft whisper…)
