Jamie's Weight Loss Diaries....#7 Weigh In....

Thursday, February 24, 2011

***Thursday is Weigh In Day...I weigh myself ONCE a week. I can't jump on the scale every day, all times of the day, when I feel fat, before a date....too much on my medicated brain. lol! Once a week is good for me. I'm a born again scale person. I'm  just now embracing the scale. I avoid it all thru my teens and twenties....***

-1 lbs

Down to 225lbs

(14 lbs lost since 12/30/2010)

I lost 1lb and I'm happy!!! Hey, I didn't GAIN and that's what's all the about! lol!

I did really well with my eating not with the exercise. I wish I was gym rat and fitness obsessed but I haven't caught the bug. Still doing my mini workouts which I'm trying to perfect.

Every Wednesday, the day before I weigh in, I eat a splurge meal....and I do it unconsciously...real talk! This Wednesday, I had a Hardee's Thickburger Meal with fries and sweet tea and I slayed it...murdered that heaux, there was even no ketchup left!!! Splurge Meal the day before I weigh in....smh.

Like I've said before, I don't eat out much. First, its money consuming and I need my coins. Second, there is nothing healthy at fast food restaurants no matter how much research you do. I'm not going to buy a $6 salad when I can make it at home with 1/2 the price and 1/2 calories. Third, If I go out to a restaurant like my favorite place, Monsoon Noodle House in Spartanburg or PF Changs or our local Mexican spot...I'm going to eat WHAT I WANT, so I make that trip out to eat , the "splurge meal". I don't want steamed fish and veggies at PF Changs...I want Garlic Noodles, Lettuce Wraps and Wonton Soup! No more that ONE splurge meal a week. If I eat more than one, I gain weight...last weigh in was proof of that. The getting to the splurge meal is hard work, too. The wait is crazy, but most of time, I dont even eat the whole meal or it either makes my stomach hurt or bloated.
