Loss/Gain: +0.5 lb.
Total Loss So Far: 36.5 lbs.
Things went pretty well this week considering TOM showed up a couple of days ago. I had moments of chocolate snacking, but overall my eating wasn't as bad as some months and I'm grateful for that. I was a little bummed with the gain, but I know it will come off this next week. It figures this would happen on the first week of the challenge. :)
I made a change to my emotional goal for the Hot 100 Challenge and I think it will work better with my busy schedule.
Speaking of the challenge, I wasn't sure if I wanted to do this challenge at first because it seemed like one more thing to have to think about. Now that I've spent a little time visiting some new blogs and still working on my own goals I am glad I joined. The challenge itself and seeing others who are following along with their own goals will give me something to help me stay focused during the holidays.
So now for my results...
WEIGHT GOAL: Lose 0.5 - 1.5 lbs a week. No. Gained 0.5 this week, but not too upset considering the mother nature reasons for it.
EMOTIONAL GOAL: **I've decided to make my emotional goal the goal of visiting one new blog each week. Connecting with others on this journey is the emotional support I need at this time. I don't have time to visit blogs and focus on the Beck book, so I'm switching it up for the challenge. Done. This week I visited Less of Me - More of Him.
HOLIDAY GOAL: Only one or two "foo-foo" coffee drinks from Starbucks the week I am visiting my mom in November. I will stick to regular coffee and cream the rest of the weeks. Done. I went to Starbucks twice this week and only had regular coffee both times. Was kind of like, "Oh, wait I'm not having that until I go visit my mom." on one visit, but it wasn't a major struggle to just get coffee. YAY!
So, overall it wasn't too bad and I'm content with how the week went.
Lastly, I've updated my progress pictures since it's the end of September and I finally showed a loss since the last time I took pictures. For new visitors to my blog. I maintained from April to August, and finally started going down in September. :)
I hope you all have a great weekend. I have some fun plans ahead and will catch up with everyone on Monday.
