Today I got on the scale!

And the scale revealed….

bathroom scale


My regular weigh in day was Wednesday but I went to get on my scale and of course, after one week of restarting the simply filling technique on my own, the batteries were dead.  That meant I had to suspend my weigh in until today because I had to go out and buy batteries.  


The last week went pretty well.  I’m actually very proud of myself.  I made much better choices for snacks which was one of my biggest downfalls.  Instead of reaching for chips, cakes or candy, I opted for an apple, orange or strawberries.  That alone is a huge step for me so I kept my focus on my snacking.  I was kinda sorta following the simply filling technique but I also did count points and would flip flop back and forth as it suited my needs.  Needless to say I was petrified to get on the scale.


I also make sure I ate the right size portions for lunch and dinner because those two are the biggest meals I eat.  I even ate things like pan pizza and lasagna!  I just made sure that my servings were smaller and that I didn’t overindulge in things that didn’t have as much nutritional value.  I even went out after work and packed a lunch that I ate quietly in the car.  I opted for thin seedless rye bread with some lean thin turkey breast, mustard, tomato and lettuce.  It made me feel so good to know that I; saved money and that I really did feel better that day.  Not for the health factor per say but because I knew I made the right choice.


I wore my pedometer and realized that I don’t walk or move around nearly enough.  It is a goal of mine for this week to talk at least 5000 steps.  I’ve been averaging about 4000 steps.  I need to keep moving and pushing it forward.  I know I’ll get there.


Now for the weight update.  I was pleasantly surprised when I got on the scale that I lost 3.4 pounds this week!  My first week and I’ve learned a lot and I’ve lost more than I thought I would! 


So, that was my exciting weigh in …how was yours?
