What I'm Doing Differently for Weight Loss

Holy smokes! I don't know what clicked this week but I have been doing great with sticking within my nutritional goals. I have noticed I've done a few things differently this week which I am going to share. 

Instead of eating breakfast just to eat breakfast, I have been waiting until I am actually hungry to eat. Some days I was hungry around 10am and a couple days I wasn't until until noon. Either way, I started my day with a turkey and cheese sandwich because it was what I actually wanted to eat instead of breakfast-type food this week. Why do we sometimes make ourselves eat foods according to the time of day instead of foods that we're actually hungry for? Hmm.

Another thing that I did differently this week was cut out coffee. I didn't do it intentionally, either. I did, however, decide not to have any coffee until I drank an entire bottle of water. It just so happened that by the time I was done with my water bottle I didn't want coffee, I wanted more water!

Finally, I took the extra time it takes to weigh and measure my food so I had a more accurate idea of what I was eating before I ate it. I won't always do this but, I do know that it helps me in the beginning of starting to get back on track. Eventually, I will be able to get to a place where I can keep moderation without needing to measure, as I've done before!

Overall, this was a great first week of getting back on track in July! I am going to weigh-in on Monday and share my results with you then! Make it a great weekend, everyone!
