Weekly Weigh-In, Spirits Have Done It All In One Night Edition

Well I got what I really wanted for Christmas, which was to regain the progress I lost in November, and when I woke up this morning, there it was under the tree! Er, I mean, on the display of the scale.

295.7, down 4.2 lbs from last week, down 23.3 total since the start, average weight lost 0.2 lbs/week. Achieved via DailyBurn and discipline not only about what I eat, but when.

I found that I was eating up all of my 0-pt. snack foods for the day in the morning, leaving me hungry and resorting to other things by afternoon, which was eating all of my daily points. So I began setting designated "You can eat now" times, which boil down to Breakfast, 10:30, Lunch, 2:30, Dinner, and 9:00. I can drink all the water or light lemonade I want, and often that will do the job when I just "want something." But if I get actually hungry between those times (which I do), I tell myself, "Okay, you're hungry. You can have food in XX minutes, at the next eat time." Then, when eat time rolls around, I go for the 0-pt. snack. If that doesn't work, I have another 0-pt. snack, and if that still doesn't work, then I move up to something more robust.

The killers for me this week were a burger at Foster's Grille (20 points for the burger, another 10 points for the fries, making that one meal half of my daily allocation), and again some fries at Chick-Fil-A. (The chicken nuggets I had with the fries? Not so bad. It was the fries that did it.) So that's going to be my next goal, is weeding fries out of the equation. The enjoyment I get from them is just not worth the points bomb. Burgers were already something I only did once in a while anyway, so I don't really have to eliminate them so much as just stop letting them in. Or if I do, allocating points for them beforehand.

Anyway! Merry Christmas. :) Gonna be an interesting exercise managing points for today's activities. ;)
