Week 5 Food Log 8/10 :)

My fifth week tracking all my food. It’s tough to remember to log each bite, but I’m getting better at it.

One of the things that makes it a commitment I can do is because of what I gain from it: the facts about what I put in my mouth.

The facts stare me in the face when I veer off course, and they provide applause when I stick to my plan.

Week 5 Summary 8/10

I’m really happy with this week. 🙂  I ate well most of the time, had 4 days without alcohol and moved my body 2 days. I would have liked to exercise more, but that’s ok.

At the end of last week, I was down 6.2 lbs. So, what happened this week? Well, I went up and down a bit and ended up down .02 lbs more.

It may not seem like much, but that means, I am down 6.4 lbs down in two weeks, which is awesome! Most times when I’ve lost weight, it comes back soon. If I keep doing what I’m doing, I should see steady weight loss over time. That’s the best way to do it, so the loss can be maintained over time.

Next week’s strategy is to keep at it.
