Well, I was hoping for a bigger loss this week, but a 3 pound loss is still progress in the right direction.
The biggest disappointment was in knowing I could have done better than I did this week. On Thursday I grabbed a restricted item (something I am supposed to limit to once a day) and had eaten it before I realized I had already had a restricted item for breakfast that morning. I think that deviation most likely hindered my progress.
But I can't beat up on myself for a single transgression. I am back on track, discovering the joys of healthy eating. (Who knew I'd love roasted cauliflower as much as I do?) Today I've stuck to the plan without deviation so that makes me a successful dieter now - and what matters is what's happening now. The thing I need to remember is that I still lost weight and 3 lbs. is nothing to be ashamed of.
My goal for next week is to beat this week's weight loss and I am positive I can do it.
