Wednesday Weigh-in

That number on the scale has gone down this week. I think mainly it's because I'm being more active overall. With the snow and ice melting off the sidewalks  and the weather warming up, I can do a lot more walking! It's still cold here in the mornings, around 0C (or 32F) then it gets a little warmer during the day. 

Making sure to get in more protein during the day so I'm not super-hungry by the time I get home. I add an extra egg in the morning then some tuna with veggies for an afternoon snack. My lunch is about the same portion and calorie-wise but my supper, in consequence of moving the calories around, is a little smaller.

Still fighting off various food cravings especially in the evenings. Definitely not hungry, just craving. Wow, it is ever a mental game these days! I usually ignore those thoughts, have a glass of water, maybe some tea, then keep busy and stay out of the kitchen. Doing laundry and keeping on top of chores helps before putting in a strength training and/or T'ai Chi DVD.

Still limiting my personal Internet time to an hour per day. It's still tough but necessary.

At work, I have been able to stay away from the pre-Easter treats left out on the common tables by the manager of another sector... who is struggling to lose weight. Great camaraderie, eh? I don't need that kind of sabotage.

Telling myself something like this helps: 
"It's just horrible tasting, cheap-ass chocolate and won't do me any good just make me fat!" 

Weight this week: 189.4lbs


  1. It is horrible, cheap-ass chocolate and not worth your time! Keep up the good work!

  2. I so understand there is all kinds of that crappy ass chocolate and such in our teacher lounge. I have to just stay completely out of there I am an "outta sight outta mind" type girl.

  3. Congrats on the weight loss, and resisting the toxic chocolate! ;)

  4. I'm so glad that it's finally warming up too, Nikki!

    Congrats on the loss! That's awesome!

    I've also starting bulking up on protein in the morning/afternoon, as I'm getting home at night, making supper and snacking CONSTANTLY. Crackers and I used to be best friends, but carbs are not good and don't keep you full.


  5. Thanks ladies! All your supportive comments and advice help keep me on track.

  6. Congrats on the sinking numbers on the scale!

    I'm with you....the weather is making it SOOO much easier to get out and move! (physically AND mentally!)

  7. Well done on the weight loss

    All the best Jan
