Weigh-In ... Non-Scale Success

Today's Weight:  164.5
Loss/Gain: - 2.5 

Well, technically this is one of those "What?!" losses.  I took a double look at the scale, because I don't feel like I've worked really hard to lose this week, BUT ... I have been careful.  So, I guess it could happen.  :)

A huge NSV last Sunday was we went to a buffet for lunch and I only ate until satisfied.  That is always a huge accomplishment for me.  

Also, without knowing it a friend called me for encouragement the other day with regards to weight loss and after talking to her I decided to change my plans for stopping for cheap hamburgers at McDonalds and we got Subway for dinner instead.  I ended up having enough points on my Subway card to save $10 on our sandwiches-only order.  Score!  (both in cost and health)

The main reason I don't feel like I worked so hard at this loss is yesterday was very busy and I didn't eat much at any one sitting.  But when I did eat I was careful about my choices.  

I've been choosing cheese and fruit instead of cookies for snacks again.  (Um, yea...guess who is visiting?? Yep, TOM.  It explains why last week I didn't want anything healthy..just sugar..*rolling eyes*)  

So, of course I'm happy to see the lower number on the scale this morning, but more than that I feel this week has been successful due to picking healthier options/portions more times than not.  

Have a great weekend!
