Hello again! It's just me here to tell you about another successful week on my Weight Watchers journey.
This week I focused on portion control. I also wanted to eat a lot more vegetables and so I made a lot of recipes that included many fresh and frozen vegetables.
I also have this sudden passion for tikka masala. I eat it in small amounts, but love it with chick peas and basmati rice.
I make sure to eat a healthy breakfast every morning. I usually will have eggs, egg beaters, puffed wheat cereal or oatmeal with fresh fruit. I limit the amount of bread I eat. Usually if I have bread, it will only be in the morning with breakfast and is usually a light english muffin since the entire english muffin is only 2 points. I almost feel like I am cheating when I eat it. I also do not drink my calories.....with 1 exception. I limit coffee to a couple of times a week and I use Silk Almond Creamer. It is delicious and less points than regular cream.
I went out to eat a couple of times this week. I always order a big salad with dressing on the side to start or as my main meal. I really like salads that have fresh fruits and a little bit of nuts and feta or goat cheese. I also look in the light section of the menu and I don't hesitate to customize my meals by telling the waitress exactly how I would like it. They are usually accommodating. After all, I am eating for me, not the person who designed the menu.
This week I lost 2 lbs!! I was so excited when I stepped on the scale. I honestly didn't think I would be down that much. I am now down 20 pounds! I am so happy about that. My goal right now is to be down 25 pounds by Christmas. That would be a great accomplishment for me..... baby steps.
I would love to hear how you stay focused on your goals and what inspires you to continue on your journey to success.
I will succeed. I am determined.
Have a great and healthy week!
