Off the plateau
I'm off the plateau and down -1.4 today so I'm happy w/ that! Guess it really wasn't a plateau at all but maybe a bad few days around labor day. I really tried to exercise the last few days to make up some ground even though I was a slow walker due to the ankle. It must have made a difference. It's amazing how no loss or a setback can really mess with my head and make me wonder if I can do this wt loss journey. Of course I can, I just have to keep on going and it will come off! It sure comes off faster if I'm totally on program and don't use all my flex points. I'm going out of town this week for 5 days to Santa Fe, NM so I'm going to try to be vigilant and not go off the program. I'm saving my flex points for one nice meal out. The other days, I'll just eat lowfat though I know it's hard to track the pts values on vacation and in restaurants in general. Think I will try to look up some that are close my the area if I can. I wish we stayed w/ the original idea which was go to a diet spa. Then I wouldn't have any problem losing! My mom is not a big eater and she is going with so I will follow her lead and not finish my food like she always does. Hope everyone is doing well this week.
