Thursday is always an exciting day for me because it’s weigh-in day, but yesterday was so much better than a typical Thursday. I got to spend a little time with my friend, Anne, who always puts a smile on my face. And Cal made a spontaneous decision to head my way after class (he’s in law school) because we won’t see each other as much over the next few weeks. And he attended my Weight Watchers meeting with Mom and me. After the meeting, he took me to dinner at a cozy Vietnamese restaurant just outside of the French Quarter where I ate Tap Chu (rice noodles) over salad with pork before doing some other fun things. Have I mentioned that I kinda like him? 🙂
But back to the meeting...I lost 2.8 pounds this week, and Mom lost 7.6! Whoa! I was happy with my numbers and totally floored by Mom’s! She typically eats a big breakfast and a light dinner which seems to be working well for her. She doesn’t lose that much every week, but she’s been on a nice downward trend since she began attending meetings with me. I’m proud of her, and I’m trying to grasp the kind of will power she exhibits all week!
My plan for this week is to make good choices one choice at a time which could be challenging because I’m traveling all weekend. Being alone in the car for seven hours or so makes me want to snack like crazy, but I plan to bring fruits and veggies that are easy to snack on while I’m driving (like cucumbers, bananas, grapes) because I want to feel good about what I’m doing long-term. Do you find it harder to eat well while you’re on the road? Are you happy with the progress you’ve made this week?
