NROL - Week 24 - Sunday

147.5 today, down half a pound. On the one hand I'm glad for any loss. On the other, I'm disappointed that it's not more. I know eating wasn't the best this week, but it felt better than having to be perfect. If I have to choose between being perfect 100% of the time and being fat, I don't think I'm ever going to be thin. And now I'm thinking, "Oh, I can't eat like I did last week because it's not very conducive to weight loss." And that's silly, because I did lose. Not much, but it was better than gaining. Then I spaz because I know as I get smaller, my body will need fewer calories. Right now, I'm eating at maintenance level calories for my smaller body, and really, it doesn't feel like a whole hell of a lot of food. I don't want to change they way I am eating now. I'm having things I really enjoy without the guilt and the binge that usually goes along with it. I don't know. I'm not going to do anything drastic right now. I think that would make things worse. So, I'll carry on.

7:30 AM - coffee w/ half-and-half & Splenda

8:40 AM - "fried" eggs w/ taco sauce &  toast w/ margarine

12:30 PM - homemade granola bars; I posted the recipe in my blog

1:25 PM - chicken breast w/ cheese & taco sauce on millet, flax & spinach wrap

2:50 PM - homemade granola bar; I wanted to see how these tasted after being refrigerated for a while; they are still okay - airy and chewy, not very sweet

4:45 PM - coffee w/ half-and-half & Splenda

6:25 PM - roasted chicken w/ onion, green pepper, salsa & taco sauce

You are doing great, Becky! :) You are consistent with your exercise, you are eating well, and you are holding yourself accountable without being too hard on yourself when you do have hard times.

You know as well as I do that healthy eating is a lifestyle change and that it's a daily battle...that you are winning! :)

Keep up the great work!

I think another pound is great! Remember that losing 1-2 lbs a week is normal and healthy because that way you know you're not losing muscle mass. You'll get there! Just keep doing what you've been'll keep it off if you lose it slower anyway. I think you're doing awesome! :) Patience...I'm learning that, too!
