Failure Is Not An Option - My #WeightWatchers Journey Week 9

Week 9 was another successful week for me. I lost close to 2 more pounds.  18 total pounds down.  I didn't have any major events planned for the week and kept on track.  I made sure to keep a log of all of my meals and snacks.

I find that when I get hungry at night, a glass of unsweetened almond milk and a cut up apple really helps to curb my hunger and only costs me 1 point.

I did go out to dinner with my husband one day to Longhorns steak house and ordered the Grilled Chicken Strawberry Salad with the dressing on the side.  I left a lot of the nuts that were in the salad so that I could keep my point count down.  

One thing that I never do, is deny myself.  I have done that in the past and it just sets me up for failure.  If I really want something, I will have it, even if it is just a tablespoon or taste.  Sometimes that is all it takes to get rid of that craving.

I also went out to a local Italian cafe for a cappuccino.  I ordered decaf made with skim milk and added splenda sweetener.  Along with that I had a small amount of berry mousse.  I gave most of it to my husband, but was satisfied with the bit I had.

I refuse to fail on my diet.  I will reach my goal and I will do it on my terms, and at my pace.  There is no rush to the finish line.  I want to get there the proper way.

If I had to put any criticism on my week, I would say that I need to drink more water.  I have never been a big water drinker.   I went to the store today and bought a bunch of flavored, unsweetened, sodium free seltzer waters.  They were on sale 3 for $1, which is a plus. They should help me to consume more fluids during the week.

The holidays are approaching soon and I have already been planning my meal out in my head.  I want to be prepared and focused on Thanksgiving.  I know a big part of that is going to be portion control.  I will succeed.

If you are on a journey to be more healthy, I would love to hear your success story and how you handle holiday temptations.

Have a successful week.  I will. 

Remember ...... You can do it. You are amazing!
