340.6 – Good Week Despite Challenges in Weight Loss (Fatty Friday)
Well, this week was surprising for many reasons. I had my fair share of challenges in weight loss goals, but it turned out okay after all.
Have you ever had one of those weeks where the challenges in weight loss seem to be around every corner and in every cabinet door you open? I think having Howard working in the evening, along with two days of work trips, really wore on me this week. I let myself cheat a little and I didn’t have my routine and regular meals. I gave into the chocolate/sweets cravings, only to find out that I have my period today (always a tell-tell sign). I also didn’t get to weigh in on Thursday (hence Fatty Friday on Sunday). But…
I lost 4.4 lbs this week!
The good thing about weighing in on Saturday was that Howard got to weigh in with me and after several missed weeks, he still lost 0.6 lbs! I’ve been proud of how he has tried to stick to our eating plan even though he hasn’t been to the weekly weigh in, getting the shot, or having the appetite suppressants. We were both happy to see his loss and I was glad that my metabolism didn’t give in to the cheats.
