I had to skip my Weight Watcher's meeting last week due to the minor inconvenience of having my body ravaged by an ungodly flu-like illness.
So I went last night with dread. I knew I'd gained. After all, I had gone from walking 20 - 25 miles per week to walking 20 - 25 steps a week. My appetite had diminished, true, but when I did feel like eating, gone was the resolve to put together something healthy, like a nice salad. Instead, I grabbed what was quick and easy. Cereal. Some toast. A bagel. Carbs and I became reacquainted. We were like long lost chums sitting down to catch up over a cup of coffee.
I was afraid, very afraid, to step on that scale.
But happy day, happy day, I lost another two pounds!
Total to date: 28.4 pounds down.
I had hoped to lose 30 pounds by the end of September, but I guess I'll have to settle for a week late.
And I can share a lesson learned here: if you're trying to lose some weight, be prepared for illness. Keep some healthy and easy-to-stomach foods on hand such as soup, crackers, and ..... oh I don't even know what else. I'm still thinking of my carbs. I miss them so.
Anyway, that's it for this week. For any of you also on the weight loss path, hope you're doing well. Let me know how things are going for you!
