I managed to officially lose 1.8 pounds this week! Hip hip hurray! That is down 85.2 pounds from my bitter highest! Hot dog! I will take it! I'm going down baby!
So this morning I decided to institute something that I used to do. I'm giving myself a free day. A day where I'm not concerned about my food intake...or rather where I accept that I will go over my budget and not really worry about it. Yes, I will still track my food. But it gives me a day or rather a meal where I can have that good old fashioned comfort food (homemade macaroni and cheese tonight) and not have to count every stinkin' piece of pasta that goes into my mouth like some Nazi General. I know that I'm going to get some flak from people for announcing this to the world. I don't care. This is me...this is how I roll. And honestly? When I did this before I would many times find that I ate healthier or at least and the same average amount of calories as my 'normal' days. Go figure!
This journey is not one size fits all. This size worked for me before, and I lost quite a bit of weight doing it that way. So I'm going to go with it again! It may not be for everyone. But that's the beauty of this journey.....what may not work for some will work for others! It's about finding our own magical equation!
