Cleo – 9.4lbs, Tony -20.8lbs
I have to remind myself that a pound a week loss is good and I can’t compare myself to Tony. It seems so much easier for him. Plus he drinks the beer he wants and still looses. I eat my patisseries and it takes me all week to break even.
Lesson 1: Stop eating bakery deliciousness.
Lesson 2: Stop overindulging on the weekends.
Tony’s been pretty strict with his
diet meal plan. He eats what’s prepped for him and doesn’t deviate. I get bored in the evening and start snacking. But my snacks are much less interesting than they used to be – Instead of stoned wheat thins with peanut butter and honey I eat rye cracker with hummus or cashew butter. The few times I had cow cheddar or real peanut butter and honey, I gained. Also, I rye cracker with hummus might fill the hunger, but isn’t so tasty as to let you over indulge.
Lesson 3: Stick to your good snacks. Hummus, cashew butter or goat cheese or salt-free potato chips.
Sometimes I still want my evening sweet treat, even after I have had my 1oz of dark chocolate. So I go back for more (and more). But chocolate has never led me to a gain. Phew! What’s the lesson here? Don’t freak out? And stick to dark chocolate? I’m not sure.
Lesson 4: Enjoy your dark chocolate.
Lesson 5: Just keep swimming!
