I weighed myself Sunday morning and found that I've lost five pounds.
I didn't eat perfectly last week but I was much more conscious of my food choices. (One of you told me to make small choices - for instance, instead of cupcakes, have a single cupcake. It's not all or nothing, right?)
So when my daughter wanted to go to Smashburger on Saturday, we did. Instead of ordering a burger and fries though, I had a salad which was delicious and filling.
I found that choice easy because I remember how my stomach hurts sometimes after eating the fries (though I love them) from that place.
Having produce clean and ready to eat was great, too. For instance, one afternoon I was hungry and found that celery and hummus satisfied me. (I like celery!)
I also walked nearly every day--even though it's been stupidly hot around here. My walks are only about 1 mile and a half or a little less, but it's a good starting place considering the ongoing trouble I've had with my feet and Achilles tendons. That's about as far as my big dog can make it in the heat anyway.
So I continue on tomorrow, making better choices. Not perfect, but better.
