Wahoo! Wasn’t expecting to see two pounds gone from the scales this morning. But that’s exactly what I saw!
Not only that – when I took my measurements, I was down another 1/2 inch from my waist, and another 1/2 inch from my thigh.
Yeah! Things are coming together, I guess. I am still using (more or less) the Cucumber/Lemon Water that I wrote about two weeks ago. Missed a couple days, but for the most part I have been pretty diligent. Didn’t really do much exercising this week, so I can’t point to that. But I intend to get back to my hiking and walking this week.
It must have been just plain being more careful about my eating, and maybe staying busy this week. I have found that I am a “bored” eater – when I have nothing pressing to do, I eat. If food is available, and I have a few minutes, I will eat. There – I have figured it out. 🙂
So I guess packing my schedule tight is my solution to weight gain. OK, I know that’s too simplistic – but it’s something to think about. Maybe by staying focused on other things, and staying out of the kitchen, I can keep losing pounds and inches. If my mind is occupied elsewhere then it can’t be focused on food.
How about you? Are you a “bored” eater, a “stressed” eater, etc. What emotion makes you head for the cookie jar? Or is that your problem at all? Let me know what YOUR trigger is, and how you deal with it. 🙂
