The scales usually tell all..... but I haven't gained a pound over this holiday..WOO HOO !!! Considering I ate chocolate and goodies, but not excessively. I was careful to have only what I really liked.. a tiny piece of cheesecake and 4-5 chocolate dipped strawberries. I ate a bunch of berries.. but those are pretty good for the diet anyway.
On my feet a bit and my feet are again swollen.. ugh. Never ending battle with the feet. Likely the salt in ham, veggie pizza, and of course, the chips I ate..though not many.. just a couple makes for havoc for me.

So..... gotta watch closer and move a bit more.. back to crunches every morning.
I've been missing my breakfast every morning too.. for about 4 days worth. I don't get fueled well so I don't eat well much of the rest of the day.
I need water again.. that slows me down too.
On to tomorrow......... !

I am holding my own. I've not been routine about eating at all. So many things get in my way during the holidays. At least there is no gain. Food takes a back seat for me. I eat when I get the chance, and usually start out right in the morning, but as the day wears on, I forget and grab something quick- my downfall. Last night it was BK chicken sandwich with some fries.. on the run. I gotta learn to eat slower and less and with less calories, though the BK sandwich is pretty balanced. Today will be another day of running around.. I will try to do more constructive meals from here on in... we'll see how it goes.
In the mean time...every morning on the scales which show my stationary weight is not all bad..just not real encouraging.

I got on the scales as usual this morning. I've not been unfaithful to my diet, but just haven't been able to eat everything on it. That's important-to eat. You have to eat to lose weight. And drink more water. I've not been good at either, but I'm trying.
Well, happily, I have been in a holding pattern for the past week, but today one more ugly pound has been eliminated. Happy Day !!
So on to today.. a healthy breakfast and a cup of coffee to get me started.

Well, I didn't eat well over the weekend, but the scales are stationary for the moment reflecting that bit of poor eating. It wasn't how much I ate.. but what I ate.. Nothing sweet.. but not balanced.
Today I'm already doing much better:
Cheerios 1/2 cup with Non Dairy milk
1 small banana
2 cups coffee with ND milk

Ah.. lunch......
4 oz tuna
1 apple
1 tbsp mayo
1 cup coffee

I did stop today and bought 2 cases of bottled water. That will last the rest of the week I hope. Water goes fast around here.
Tonite we are having a pork roast. I can smell it in the crock pot and it makes me want to try some now.. but I'll wait. I'll have Mandy bring home some salad stuff and we'll have green beans with it.. and perhaps some fruit for dessert.
Yep... back on track again.

Well, with all that's gone on this week, imagine my surprise when I stepped on the scales this morning and saw another pound gone. I'm lacking in exercise.. but trying to stay on the diet.
It's not easy when I have to cook for myself.. Wendell is still on the BRAT diet.
I'm concentrating on amounts. I need to get some water.. drinking water. I'm out and that limits me on the amount that I consume.
I'll do better.
Wish I could hop on a bike like the above picture.. I need to access the exercise bike upstairs.
More later..gotta eat a healthy breakfast..
