Weigh In 2

So, today was weigh in day at the dietitian's office. As usual, I got there early and ready to step on the scale. Little did I know that I was in for a shock when she told me how much I had lost this week.

Last week's weight : 252.1 lbs

This week's weight: 251.5 lbs

Yep, I lost 0.6 lbs. Even the dietitian said this was so unlike me, since she was used to seeing me lose not less than 2 lbs since we started this journey. Truth is, I didn't go off plan. I ate like I was supposed to. Measured all my portions and stayed away from soda and pastries. 

However, to be on the safe side, I've been asked to keep a journal for the week, so we can both review during my next weigh in. Will start tomorrow, as today was my brother's wedding day and I didn't stay on plan.  Now, before you go raising eyebrows, I tried to eat healthy with what was available. I had a salad with fried fish and some pepper sauce. Then I had five gizzards and a bottle of Alvaro (yes it is a soda, and I do not feel guilty since I won't be taking any soon).

Got home and then took some popcorn and a Diet Coke for dinner. I just didn't feel like eating real food but was peckish. Logged everything on MFP but suspect I overestimated just to be safe.

Anyways, will resume tomorrow and add some more exercise to ensure a better loss at the next weigh in. I'm taking things one day at a time and keeping in mind that it is a lifestyle, and there will be days where life will make it impossible to follow plans to the letter. 

Today, I learnt that staying away from the carbs was a good option. Next time I may stay away from soda :).
