I was a tad nervouse to step on the scale this morning because I had a sliver of a piece of cake for my daughters 2nd birthday last Sunday (this was after my first weigh in of course). I didnt feel bad about it I just knew I needed to stay on track the rest of the week. In fact that sliver of cake may have been just what I needed to keep me determined for the rest of the week. The original plan was to not start the diet until after her birthday but I thought you know what life includes birthdays and cake is part of what helped me get to where I am, so I need to face it head on and deal with as I will need to in the future. Im proud of my self for just having a sliver like that I actually put thought into how much or little I was going to have-I made a very conscientious decision. It almost feels as though my brain is being retrained in this process as well! And I should note my will power is not totally absent I did forgo everything but the veggies at a gradutation party the day before and that included passing up on the cake!!
Well on to the good news after another week and a sliver of cake Im down 8 more pounds! Thats 20lbs so far and boy can I feel it! Im very proud and am looking foward to tackling the transistion to cycle 2 this week-Im going to try and enjoy it more then I did last time! (last year I just constantly felt as though I was cheating with addition of the extra carbs) If I remember correctly last time for week 3 I lost 5lbs-My goal for this week will be to try beat what I did last year for week 3. Lets see if I can do it!!!
