Last week I only lost 1/2 lb at weigh-in.  I checked my weight at home over the weekend and I was up 1 lb, but that is gone this morning, but it doesn't look like I will be showing a loss or gain this week.  That's OK.  I still feel that I'm doing well and am confident I will continue to lose.  I am not going to any more meetings.  I gave it a shot and it just didn't seem to be worth the money to me.  I will see how I do on my own, and if I think I need to continue with the meetings I will try a different location in my area.  It's possible that the leader was just not getting through to me in a positive way.  The main thing is I seem to have broken my habit of overeating starchy carbs.  That was always my main problem.  I am starting to reach for vegetables and sometimes fruits for snacks.  It's all good.

Yesterday, I found myself in a restaurant, trying to handle my grandson, and seeing a picture on the menu, I ordered a Philly Turkey Cheese sandwich.  It was a snap decision, and not what I normally would have ordered.  When it came, it looked really good, but it had a big hoagie bun, which would have totally blown my food plan.  So, I ate the turkey, cheese, onions and peppers and left the bun.  I had a side of cottage cheese with it, and also the broccoli my grandson ordered and then didn't want.  So all in all, I had enough to eat without doing too much damage.  This week I was bouncing up and down the same pound, but plan to get back to it and start losing again.

Weigh-in day, and I'm down another 1/2 lb.  I really would like to see more than that each week, but a loss is a loss.  I do not feel hungry or deprived, I am just making healthier choices and limiting quantities.  Not to the point of being hungry, just to the point of feeling satisfied and not stuffed.  I do eat small portions of "unhealthy foods" at times, but the difference is they are small, small portions, just for a taste.  If I know I can have a little bit of something I am more satisfied.  This is working better for me than passing up certain foods completely and then ending up bingeing.  I was used to eating the same vegetables over and over and now I am trying different ones, and I no longer crave carbs. So all in all, I am happy with my progress.

Wren, I am happy that I'm losing again.  I know I'm not setting any weight loss records, but a loss is a loss.

Thank you Wren, same to you and a Happy New Year, too. I am very glad I did not show a gain over the holidays. I did indulge in some treats, but I did not go overboard. I feel good and plan to get back to my exercising like I should. I check the scale regularly, even when I don't want to, because if you catch the weight gain when it's only a couple pounds, it's easier to get it back off. Carol
