Week 1: +2
Week 2: -5.2 (net -3.2)
So, TECHNICALLY I lost 5.2 pounds this week, but that might be skewed just a bit. My 2 pound gain last week was… unusual. I ate too much the day before and some of it was “water” weight that us women tend to gain at times. Plus, I weighed this morning at my in-laws, and their scale was weighing me a little low. I’m deciding thought that I’ll take what I can get so darn it, I’m recording my 5.2 weight loss! *grin*
I HAVE done better this week though. I tried to eat 2 meals some day instead of 3. (Do not lecture me on this!) I tried to eat smaller portions, especially if I knew a “big” meal was upcoming. This weekend will be my ultimate test though. I’m at my in-laws and *sniff* she’s making brownies for the cookout tonight.
Have I ever told you about my love affair with brownies?
It’s worse than my drooling over frostys. When I was pregnant with Karalynn, Scott told me I was going to give birth to a brownie if I didn’t stop eating them. This may sound really mean to you, but understand that I would sit down with a full pan of brownies and eat over half the pan in one setting. (the other half a day later) It was horrible. It is also why I gained 50 pounds with that pregnancy and only lost 20.
Some people would recommend me completely cutting out brownies from my diet. This cannot happen. I’d go into brownie withdrawal and … I really just don’t want to.
So I’ve started Operation Brownie Control.
I only make brownies when I have company coming over or am taking them someplace like work. This helps me limit my intake by putting many other people around me to eat them. It works… most of the time. I only have like four instead of the whole pan. *grin*
