Nobody said it was gonna be easy...

Wednesday, June 08, 2016

So it's about a week since DH and I committed to be healthier. We both did good as far as eating. Some snacks, but they fit into our calories for each day. The first full week is always the hardest for me. It's like a test run, but it went well this time. So... how did we do? Well, DH lost (drumroll) 15 pounds! He always does amazing the first week. Me? I gained 6 pounds. Yes... I would have been better off eating whatever and having a margarita or two. But seriously? This is not unusual for me. Well, not to gain, but to stay the same or lose maybe only 1 pound which I am happy with. Oh well. It's OK. I am still one week healthier. emoticon

Time to pick up the exercise and stick to the plan. Some days vegetarian, some not. Stronger focus on sodium. Lower carbs. I still have my focus. I still have my motivation. That is all I need. That and a sense of humor. LOL

    Omg that meme is so funny! Our bodies can definitely react in a way that is unexpected. I'm happy to read that you are staying the course. emoticon

    Glad you aren't too freaked out by what the scale did! I actually put my scale away for awhile because I had NO control over what it did. Instead I focused on things I COULD control (Yes, I CAN eat another serving of vegetables today! Yes, I CAN exercise 10 minutes more than last week!). By focusing on the things I COULD control, eventually that scale cooperated. Hang in there!
