It's weigh-in day!
I know that it's only the fourth day of March but, last week I found out that I actually get some motivation from weighing in on Friday mornings! It motivates me to stay good throughout the weekend.
Today's weigh in was not as amazing as last Friday's weigh in (where I lost six pounds in one week). This morning I weighed in at 246 lbs. This week I lost one pound!
Do I wish I would have lost big again this week? Sure! Who wouldn't? The truth is though, I didn't really do anything to warrant another big loss. I did stay within calories this week, just like I did last week, however; I didn't drink very much water. I also got out of the habit of taking my vitamins daily, and I didn't eat as many fruits and vegetables, either.
Going to bed earlier last week really seemed to help me lose the weight, too. This week, I was busy with a lot of orders for my at-home craft business, so there were a couple late nights.
Specifically, last night, I had a "Quarter Pounder with Cheese" from McDonald's at like 9 p.m. simply because I had the calories and I was craving a burger. My husband was hungry too, so we treated ourselves to a greasy treat while we worked late on some banners.
Even with that greasy treat, I am a pound down this morning for the entire week. Staying within calories definitely works for me, but doing it in a way that is more healthy (like not eating McDonalds at 9 p.m.) provides better results. The proof is in last week!
