All streaks must come to an end. This means my 8 week streak of loss was broken Saturday. I had a gain of .6 pounds. I was disappointed but not surprised. The scale moved up Monday and never budged.
I’m not concerned though as I ate on plan and exercised seven days last week including three pilates classes. So this week the loss number decreases to:
Total Loss: 13.8 Pounds
This week’s meeting was about preparation for dining out. One woman’s strategy was to never eat out but that’s not a realistic solution for me. I have two trips next month and having a plan makes it easier to stay on track.
Taking snacks, preplanning by viewing menus online and refusing the bread basket are a few of the strategies shared. I also like to eat a piece of fruit or some carrots before leaving for the restaurant. Better decisions are made when I’m not “starving”.
Next week: I hope to get to 15 pounds lost at the next weigh-in, but no matter what I’ll have an on-plan week. Do you have any food or exercise challenges this week?
