Day 84 - 89, New Year

It has been one hell of a week.  Lots of roller coasters.

I didn't have a stellar week eating since last Wednesday. I was away for a few days and that meant restaurant meals, although I made pretty good choices, there's no way to really control the sodium or the hidden fats in seemingly innocent foods.  Actually, Applebee's in the US has a Weight Watchers menu and I ordered Paradise Salad, including dressing it was 9 points, since I never eat salad dressing, I know I over tracked that meal.  IHOP has a Slim and Fit menu with items under 400 calories and I ordered from that for breakfast the next day...but there was a lot more carbs than I would normally eat over the last week. Once I start the carb slide, it's a quick ride down to an all carb free for all.  This week was kinda like that, I did go over my total points by 5 for the week but I never count my activity points.....argh...somehow it all balanced out to a loss of 2.5 lbs this week.

That is 0.3 lbs away from 10%. Yeah, I know I'll get it next week...but close!!!

Total is 22.7 lbs, average is 1.75 lbs a week...still a great average, I think.

Plan for the week ahead is to count my activity points - just to see ;) and also to end the carb overload and get back to more balanced eating.


  1. End the carb OD - great words!
    When ever I get some carbs, it takes days,
    if not weeks for them to completely leave my system....
    I have concluded that they just aren't worth it....
    in the end!
    Good job on the loss!

  2. Carbs are evil!!! LOL!

    So close to the will be here before you know it.

  3. That's a great loss! You're doing so well: sodium or none. :)
