It’s MONDAY! And boy is this week a slow one. Since Friday the work days have been dragging. Today is no exception. I have a new trainee observing with me so we have been talking non-stop since I started at 0600. Good thing I had my caffeine today.
I think I’ll delay my WI until Tuesday evening. I got on the scale this morning and there is a good meeting/leader at the Meridian center this evening. I do like the earlier time on Tuesday so we will see how the leader/group is. I need to clean house before my friend Jacquie comes into town from Toronto, Canada. She sprung her visit on my a few days ago and her visit will be quick. I love having guests and I am very happy I have the spare room all ready to go. This was why we liked the floor plan we selected. With Jacquie’s visit, I will also be getting my cleaning done early before our open out on Saturday. Yeah!
I met my friend Cathy for a bite to eat after work yesterday. Yesterday was a huge struggle as I was hungry…all….day. And, it was a bit cold outside (freezing in dispatch) and I was bored. The three didn’t make for a good combo and I had my lunch at 10:30am! Since I knew I was eating out later in the day I kept myself on track by not eating out for lunch despite feeling hungry. I filled my belly with Starbucks instead. Americano for the win!
I knew where we were eating and I had a plan to order a lettuce wrapped chicken sandwich. Once I arrived at the restaurant in my starved state, I caved and got a burger and fries. We also had frozen yogurt. It was all very yummy and there was no guilt involved. However, I know in order to be successful with my weight loss I need to keep the calories/points low. The hard part is low points usually means I am hungry a lot. My lunch on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday didn’t hold me over very good. Eating low points make my body crave more food and/or I feel like I’m searching for something else. I know with time it will adjust so I need to just stay the course. I’d like to say I had my “high point day” yesterday but I know there is stuff this week that will generate “high point days” as well.
I’m loving the WW Connect site and all the success stories. It can be a little tough sometimes to feel like I’m not losing weight as fast as the others. I also know that I’m not working as hard as the others. And we all know we can’t compare our success to another.
