It's that time again...
I'll be happy with any loss this week. I was over my points by quite a few, because I let planning slide -- I still tracked everything, but without a plan, it's easy to get into too many points. I was also a little less active this week -- only earning 46 activity points instead of last week's 63. I just got back from a run, but those points actuallly count for a new week. I also have my meals for today all planned out. That's really the only way I'm going to hit the numbers right and still get in all the foods I need for a balanced diet.
Because of the Lose for Good program, I'm bringing food to the center when I weigh in. The idea is to bring the amount of weight in food that I think I'll lose. Last week I brought a 2.5 pound jar of peanut butter. This week I'm bringing three 8 oz. cans of pineapple in juice. That's 1.5 pounds, maybe a little optimistic, but that's OK. The real point of the food is to remind ourselves that in a way, a weight problem is a "lucky" problem to have.
