Week 18

Week 18: 219.0
Last Week: 219.2
Progress: Down .2
Starting Weight: 270.2
Total Weight Loss: 51.2
Average Weekly Loss: 2.84

I was hoping for a better loss this week, but I'll take any loss. I did a lot of mindless eating this week and tonight, again I am just feeling SO hungry. I've made good choices today, much better than the chocolate and chips of last week. I'm hoping my string of big loss-small loss continues and I'll have a good week next week.

This week at our meeting we discussed resources, we discussed a lot about the 4 pilars of success: thinking first, attending weekly meetings, eating wisely and get moving. It turned out to be a good meeting, we all got Bravo stickers as our group has really stepped up to the plate and attended most of the meetings throughout the whole summer. It can get hectic, but I'm doing it because I want to.

Today, I got me cholesterol checked at work. I've never had it checked before and had no idea what to expect. Turns out I had one of the lowest scores: 115. Guess my change in eating habits is starting to pay off.

Congrats on that low cholesterol number. That's the proof you're doing the right thing.
Have a good weekend!

We always like to see those higher losses, but I would always take take any loss over a gain!

There's a book out called Mindless Eating that explores the whole phenomenon. The author conducted a lot of experiments on just how much we eat when we're not paying attention. The paperback version just came out and I'm thinking of picking it up.

Great job with your cholesterol!
