I've lost 3 pounds from my original 190. I know it doesn't seem like much, but remember that my goal is to lose 50 by 50 which is still 54 weeks away. I'm going to make it. It doesn't take a ton of effort, I'm discovering, to lose a pound a week. The challenge is in not gaining it back the following week like I did in Florida. I ate everything I wanted. If I do that at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and every Tampa or Baton Rouge trip I take then I could see cutting my weight loss in half. So I'm ready to implement new vacation/holiday strategies:
2. Lunch and dinner at restaurants:
Option 1: Look at the menu, pick what I really, really want and eat half.
Option 2: Eat from the appetizer menu and have a house salad with dressing on the side and/orlight dressing.
I'm going to get to try these out this week since we're going down to Baton Rouge and Pensacola. My goal is to still lose a pound.
I'm not planning on taking my laptop along this week since our days and evenings are planned out, but I'll jot down my thoughts each day and post them on Friday or Saturday when I return. I'll blog the old fashioned way with paper and pencil - lol!
