No Cheat Challenge Day 7 and Weigh in!

Thank you all so much for the great comments that I receive! Ok, I just really needed to say that.

You all have convinced me not to change my WI day. Having my WI Monday morning was something that I chose to do, just to keep me more accountable on the weekends. And changing it would not really be helping myself but rather enabling myself.

So, today has been better... much better. I weighed in at exactly 245, which was down 1.6 lbs. Not bad considering my cookie disaster yesterday. I'm totally back in control with the eating stuff today and I feel much better about myself. I really can't wait to crack my 20 lbs mark! Hopefully next week for sure.

Today's Menu (so far)

Breakfast: 4 points
Reduced sugar oatmeal, 1/3 cup skim, half banana, half grapefruit

Lunch: 6 points
Smart Ones Florentine Lasagna

Dinner: 9 points
3 flatbread crackers w/1 tsp hummus (while I was making dinner)
M&M's bbq chicken kabob, 4 spears asparagus, 1/2 tsp oil, 4 oz baby potatoes, 2 tbsp light sour cream
1 tbsp sunflower seeds

Dessert: 2.5 points
fat free vanilla pudding cup w/2 tsp slivered almonds

Snack: 2 points
London Fog (one cup skim)

That's only 23.5/30 but I'm sure I'll have a little something else too.

Anyone else care to join in for another round of the No Cheat Challenge starting tomorrow? Though I did slip up yesterday, it's an improvement! In the past I've stopped tracking most Friday nights and haven't started again until Monday. This weekend I only stopped tracking Sunday afternoon/evening. I can do it!!

I'll join you again--it's cheaper than going to meetings and works just as well :)

Thanks for the photobucket tip.

Thanks for the comments. I just get bored soemtimes posting about just food, so I figured I'd throw some pics up there. I LOVE looking at pics of others, so I figured, why not?
You did great this week... Kudos! You'll get the working out back on track soon, you'll see.
And I agree about not moving your WI day. Either way, you'll see the results at some point (even though that point may seem FAAAR AWAY).

Hey,great job on the weigh in! And I think your decision to keep your wi on Mondays is a good one. Yeah!

Heather said...

congrats on your loss! see, so often we think that if we indulge, the scale wil lcertainly be up, so why dont we just keep on indulging? but the reality is, if you indulge and can limit it to one occaison, youd be surprised how it doesnt really affect your weigh ins. glad that you are back on track!

Whew! Glad there was no harm done on The Cookie Incident. Keep up the great work and the great attitude!

I think your doing fabulous! we started with very similar stats, I have an inch in height on you but I also started a bit heavier, 288, so I know it can be done and it just takes commitment and time, you choose to have both and that is inspiring.

Wow, Congratulations, 1.6 lbs is a great loss and especially considering you had a cookie fall. Been there done that!!

Just found you, I'll be back!!
