Almost 2 months in

It has almost been two months since I've started really cutting out grains and trying to keep track with WW and I have lost 11lbs so far. Of course if I was losing the normal 2lbs a week than that means I should have lost 16 lbs by now but I'm happy with myself since I have eaten some junk (ice cream, potatoes, etc). For let I did give up potatoes and I think that's helping with the weight loss since I'm not overcompensating not having bread by having potatoes. We'll see how well this goes in the coming days/weeks.  But I was so happy when I weighed myself and I was down 11lbs since the New Year. It won't be long until I'm excited about losing 30, 50, or even 100lbs. Just have to keep on keeping on :)

Way to set yourself up

The plan for February is to limit potato in my diet. When I think of potato I don't think of sweet potatoes as being included but I really need to remember to limit the intake with them as well. That being said, what do I have for lunch today but a potato soup from the cafeteria. WTG Meg. It's the first day of the month and have the one food that you're supposed to eat less of. I need to stop setting myself up for failure and start really thinking about the choices I make. I'm just going to accept I made a mistake and move on. I used up 1 out of the 4 times I'm allowing myself to have potato this month. Hopefully I won't be so careless with my choices next time. 

I also need to remember to take a photo of me. I decided, after reading the article in nerd fitness about the guy who lost 128lbs in 10 months, to take a photo of myself instead of weighing myself. Since weight is just a number and it fluctuates depending on muscle, the time of the month, or what you ate the night before. I'm also a more visual person when it comes to things so I think having a picture would help me more than a number.
Here's to being FabuLESS!
