Another one bites the dust! Down another pound, officially 216. I'm SO pleased w/ that this week especially b/c I totally pigged out on cheese enchiladas, these and these too. It was a great weekend, I just need to learn to "embrace that healthy lifestyle". So NOT doing that yet. Why does this have to be so hard sometimes?

I've been bad about getting to this today! I even took a pic (I'll load it later) of the scale. Down to 217.2 Glad to see it...wanna keep going. I realized that I'm a little more "slow & steady" than I want. At this rate it'll take a couple of years! Hoping I can start to get some bigger numbers. Although, I must say watching The Biggest Loser last night isn't helping my want of those large numbers! Oh well...I'm going for realistic!

Here's the article I mentioned in my last post.

It's called:

Parents focus on kid's diet but neglect their own

Even if you don't have kids, there are some good ideas in here that could be implemented to ensure you are eating healthy and not grazing on junk b/c it's convenient.

So I'm a little confused. I'm pretty sure I've stayed constant this week. (No weight loss) My scale and the scale at the nutritionist's office are significantly out of sync. I think by like 3 or 4 pounds. So, I'm not really sure what my weight is and have not been home until now (4:30 in the afternoon)...too late to weigh myself. So w/o giving more excuses, I'm's that?

My goals for this month: (three of them set by my Nutritionist & I):

-No more evening snacking. (i.e. after dinner) This one is KILLING me. It was a goal of mine last month that I was not successful at. Lots of sabotage going on there. Do you self-sabotage in any way?

-Embrace a healthy lifestyle. I have a love/hate relationship with this one. When I'm doing great, working out, etc. it's easy to come up with reasons to be happy with these changes. Not so much when I'm stressed. These last 2 weeks have been a doozey for me, too.

-Work out at least 3 days a week. I'm doing pretty good at this (excluding this last week and a half of course) Back on the wagon for me!

I have an article she gave me on parents who encourage their kids to eat well, but in turn don't do it for themselves. It was very good. I'll have to share it on here soon. Hope y'all are doing good. Thanks for stopping by!
