I hesitate to credit this, because my weight can easily fluctuate by this amount in a single day, but I hope by saying it, I'll draw encouragement and make real progress over the next couple of weeks. This morning, my weight was four pounds less than it was on the first of October.
Other than last night when I wasn't feeling well and didn't to any and tonight when I only did one, I've been doing two FitDeck cards per day for the last week and half. It's been easy, and it feels good to do (how many push-up cards are in that darn deck, anyway?).
I've done a good job of journaling what I eat each day -- including adding comments about what was going on when I think I've done some emotional eating to document and maybe validate patterns. By validating patterns, I can devise specific alternatives.
I'm fortunate to have a physician's assistant for an office mate, and he leads a very healthy lifestyle (his job here, until this reorganization, had been wellness). By paying attention to him, I've been getting some great ideas. For instance, his lunch today was yogurt and a banana. Is that a quick and easy lunch, or what?
