I was down another half pound this morning. That's 2 pounds in 2 days. I feel like I'm on "The Biggest Loser." During my Weight Watchers days, I was happy to lose a pound in a week. Of course, I also was never very good at sticking to my Points range.
One of the most intriguing things about this is the thought that with just the basic skills and a daily food plan I write for myself, I might be able to lose weight without following someone else's idea of what I should eat. It's an intriguing thought. Of course, I'm a veteran Weight Watcher, so I have some idea of portion sizes and what I should be eating if I want to lose. A lot of people might try to either eat too little or, conversely, might have an unrealistic idea of how much they should be able to eat and lose weight. I am going to try the plan, too, once I master these basic skills.
I am still having trouble eating without distractions. When I'm sitting alone and eating I have the urge to read or use my iPod or something. I guess I am used to having company when I eat. Yesterday I didn't really get much in the way of spontaneous exercise, either, unless you count walking across campus to pick up my mail. I'm not sure that I do, considering that the campus I was walking across is so tiny. I am told, though, that a lot of the faculty in my building have the administrative assistants get their mail for them. Personally, I need the excuse to get up and do something!
