I'm only down 1.2 lbs this week. There are many things I could blame that on. The trip to Dairy Queen on Saturday, having hamburgers Friday night instead of the weight watchers recipe we had originally planned, the fact that I skipped two workouts. OH WELL.
For those of you who are wondering, here's what I'm doing in terms of diet: eating less. HA! I know that is like the most generic way to diet, but that's what works for me. Specifically, I've stopped making desserts (and don't think that brownie mix isn't calling my name) and I quit snacking. I know the idea behind lots of small meals instead of three big ones, but if I snack? I eat many, MANY more calories than I would otherwise. I found that out when I was doing weight watchers. Most days I ate close to half my points as snacks. It's because I don't like healthy snacks. If my choices are carrot sticks or nothing, I'll pick nothing every time. So nothing it is. I have a hard time not snacking in the morning because we eat breakfast so early, so most days I have a diet soda (or energy drink) while Will is napping. The caffeine helps curb my appetite. And I KNOW that is not the healthiest way to do things. And once I'm done losing and go back to maintaining I'll just go back to snacking.
I'm no good at the diets that exclude stuff. As soon as you tell me I CAN'T have something it's all I want. That is probably why weight watchers works well for me. Anyway. It's a new week, so I'm back to being good. Right after the cake I'm going to eat tonight.
