Monday

Well, yesterday I stopped over at my friends house that we do the Weight Loss Challenge on Tuesday's together and I took an early peak at my weight. At first the scale said 174lbs, I weighed 169 last Wednesday, I was shocked, then I took off my belt and some things from my pocket, 172lbs, still shocked because I have been eating relatively healthy and I ran 11 miles on Saturday morning. I think even though I have been eating healthy, my calorie intake has been too much, so I have to watch that.

After weighing in at my friends house, I went to work. Before work started at 9p.m., I was starving and decided to eat, put on my plate more food than I needed, I eat 3/4 of it and stopped and threw the rest out, which was good, it goes to a pig farm, so don't feel too bad and the food at work really isn't that good. The rest of my 8 hour shift, I had one instant herbalife shake with h30 hydration drink mixed in(180calories), two herbalife protein bars(140 calories each) and lots of water. When I got home from work, I was very hungry and had one abs burger(250 calories) with a think sandwich bun(110 calories) and water instead of the usual milk. I was still slightly hungry but I dealt with it and finally fell alsleep. Good day all in all.

The scale for me sometimes is a reminder that I need to readjust.

My goal is 155lbs by Dec. 12th when I go back to Utica, NY to visit family. One day at a time and I can make it!!

Never take an early look at the scale :) It's never where you want it to be!!
You are doing what you need to. And i have no doubt that you will get where you want to be :)

Sounds like you have a good attitude with the one day at a time thing! Good job listening to your body and stopping when you had enough. I find myself too often eating things I don't really enjoy or want the whole portion of. It's definately something we can all work on!

Maybe your clothes are heavy? Keep up the good work emmett. Plus, his scale and your scale may not be simpatico.

As Suzi said, just keep making wiser choices. The scale does not always help us.

I think you'll do it, Emmett.

well done on your wise choices, we all need a kick up the backside from time to time when we get complacent!

however, it's worth remembering that weight can fluctuate massively over the space of a few days so possible a better plan would be to pick a day and stick to just weighing in then... no other sneaky peeks on scales - it's tough though!

Even if you don't make 155 by December 12th, great changes have taken place and it shows. Don't get hung up on a certain number or date.
