56 and weekly reflections: 3/16 – 3/22

change in weight (3/16/21 – 3/22/21): –1.2 LBS

It is going to be a short post this week, folks. But… 6 weeks in a row! I have continued the downward trend for 6 weeks in a row. With another 1.2 pounds lost this week, I am now at 56 total pounds lost and I feel so proud of myself and proud of my effort.

The week saw more focus on walking and my eating. I continued to try and get good, lively walks in when I could and continued to be more disciplined about tracking my food. I succeeded at both and the replacement part for the Peloton came so now I have started to get some rides back into the mix. The increased activity and work felt good.

There is a big difference in my attitude lately. One thing that has changed is that I am more willing to make smart decisions and tough choices about food because I feel more confident the outcome will be what I am hoping. When I was stuck on the plateau, that faith in outcome was waining so the resolve to make the hard choice was not as strong. A perfect example came the other night when we had pizza. I had the opportunity to have more, but I limited myself to 3 slices of pizza. Before I would have 4 and then sneak back 20 minutes later for another one… just because.

As the weather is turning warmer, I plan on spending more active time outside. That is my overarching goal for the next week. Get outside and continue to track every bite of food.

What is your plan this week?
