day 9

Tomorrow is day 10 of no soda/tea.
I think I'm gonna have to celebrate!
Well, maybe I'll wait until the 2 week mark...

The hubbs finally hid the scale from me.
Yes, I was getting on it everyday.
It showed a 4 pound loss in 4 days and I was nervous.
There's no way that could be right.
I know I fluctuate a lot so I need to stay off the scale.
But with everything else I'm not doing, that one is too easy.
So, the hubbs hid it from me and I'll get to weigh on the 29th.

My goal is 5 pounds in 5 weeks.
I realize now I should have made it higher but I think I need to start with baby steps. If I lose this 5 pounds then I will make my next goal to be 2 pounds a week. Which would be 10 pounds in 5 weeks if I reached it and holy cow I would be ecstatic! But let's not jump ahead...

I had 28 points yesterday.
I struggled with going to lunch with Jenny to a mexican restaurant. I'm proud to say I did order salad though and only ate half a serving of chips (which is 5! yes, FIVE whole chips!) I went over with dinner last night cause we had Taco Bell. It takes time to learn what I can and can't have.

I did the elliptical for 30 minutes in the pm. I struggled hard core cause my foot hurt so bad but after about 10 minutes it pretty much went numb and quit hurting. So now I know the trick and no longer have an excuse!

1 pack oatmeal - 3pts
1 tbsp flax - 1pt
1/2 cup blueberries - 0pts
chips/salsa - 2pts
salad w/chicken - 5pts
italian dressing - 2pts
carrots - 1pt
string cheese - 1pt
burrito - 9pts
taco - 4pts

I think baby steps is a good way to start. Accomplish them and it will be all the more motivation! Keep up the good work!
