Wednesday Weigh In - Week 1

Or should I say Weak 1?  It wasn’t a good week at all.  I wanted to be able to put up some cute graphic with the -1 or -2 pounds that I lost.  Instead I need to report that I’m +2.  Uggh!  Not good. 

This week I thought a lot about why I eat vs. why I should eat.  I eat because:
               I’m bored
               It’s there
               I’m showing the dog that’s it’s good and he should eat it too (yes, really!)
               I have time to kill before an appointment
               It’ll go bad if I don’t eat it now
               The refrigerator needs to be cleaned out
               I’m frustrated with a work assignment
               I’m sad, angry, mad, etc.
               I need to relax

I should eat because:
               I’m hungry
               My body needs fuel

I tend to pick and snack and nibble a lot.  I need to be more conscious of what I put in my mouth.  Just because food is there doesn’t mean I have to eat it.
I really should take a look at what I eat as well.  I guess pizza, Chinese and homemade mac ‘n cheese aren’t diet foods!  Farmers’ Markets are opening up all over the place and there’s an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables available.  DH and I are planning on heading to one of the better ones by us this Saturday.

Here’s to a better second week!


  1. Sounds like you have the right attitude and i'm sure next week will show a loss ;) Stay positive!

  2. You can do it! I'm right there with ya!
