This past week was by far the busiest week I have had all year. I ended up eating out a lot with family because my little sister was in town and I went to three birthday parties. I ended up gaining one pound this week and currently weigh 188.8 pounds and have a BMI of 30.5. I was really disappointed I didn’t lose weight but I was also proud of myself. I was proud that I had made some good food choices throughout the week…
-At party #1 there was no cake. At party #2 there was cake and I had two bites of the strawberry filling. At party #3 there were two cakes and I had half a piece of one of them. In the past I would have enjoyed large pieces of cake and at the party with two cakes I would have *had* to try both.
-At my brother’s party there were many appetizers and I didn’t eat any of them. For dinner we had lasagna and I wanted seconds of it because I was still hungry but I chose to eat seconds of the vegetables instead.
-When I went to the movies for the screening of Pirate’s of the Caribbean I would have normally ate a whole bag of candy. I allowed myself a handful of Reese’s Pieces.
As you can see, I ate some unhealthy foods this past week but I am learning to control my eating and practice moderation. That lesson alone was more valuable than the weight loss would have been because I am learning healthy eating habits that will extend beyond this challenge.
