Down 1 lb :)
And I'll take it. So after stressing about switching the meeting time from Thursday morning to Thursday evening, it turns out that I still lost 1 lb this week, yay! I have to admit after my pitiful loss last week of .4 lbs, I lost some faith in my ability to lose weight. However, I feel much better now that I lost a pound and I am slowly but steadily on the way towards reaching my goal.
Yesterday at the meeting, we discussed the importance of fruits and vegetables, which coincides with my goal this week of getting at least 4 servings of them per day. For me, the hardest part about getting my servings of fruits and vegetables (during the day at least) is that doing so involves PLANNING on a regular basis. I would have to go to the grocery store to buy the fruits and vegetables, and then decide which to eat with each meal/ how to prepare them, etc...However, that's just what I'm going to have to do from now on. Because that's what HEALTHY PEOPLE DO.
You know, I was reading an article about a woman who successfully lost nearly 100 pounds. She said that as soon as she joined WW, she started acting like a "skinny person" would act and making decisions that a "skinny person" would make. And before she knew it, she had transformed into one of them. That's how change happens. You start consciously deciding to be something different, and all of a sudden all those little actions--skipping ice cream, going for walks, eating fruits and vegetables--add up and you become a new person.
So, I feel confident that if I consciously make "healthy" decisions on a regular basis, pretty soon I will transform into a healthy person. After all, this blog is called Katie's Way to Healthy for a reason ;) So...on that note, I am going to try desperately to find a fruit/ vegetable to eat with my staple breakfast of peanut butter and honey on a bagel thin.
Happy Friday everyone!
