Well it was a holiday weekend which meant that I had more time off, I also took an extra day off. I was concerned of losing track or overeating and I don’t feel like either were necessarily an issue. I was much more consistent on weighing myself. As of this morning I weigh 230 lbs. I was hoping to have gone down a little more since yesterday, but I didn’t. I am trying not to get discouraged because 8 lbs even if it is just water weight is quite a bit. I may be eating too little which could contribute to the scale not moving any the past two days.
My big thing so far has been not telling myself that I can’t have a certain food. When I do that then all I want is that food and I binge on it. So I can have whatever I want I just cut the portion. Overall this has worked pretty well. I know that I am not getting my Macronutrients where they need to be which will be my next focus, along with drinking more water. I have been making small strides toward cutting down the amount of sweetened drinks I have and increasing water. I will order both at a meal out, and sip slowly never finishing the sweetened beverage, typically never even having half. I also make sure I order a water and drink quite a bit before the meal starts or I have anything sweet to drink .
