Once, again, I weighed in at 118. This bums me out because there must have been hidden fat in the meal I had when my husband and I dined out. I know it may sound infuriating (believe me, I couldn't stand those girls who were always so tiny and could eat whatever they wanted!), but now I make it my goal not to go over 120 pounds. I worked hard to get where I am! If I do reach 120 pounds I know it is time to make an appointment with my consultant at Jenny Craig. It is important not to obsess about the number on a scale; however, it is also important to keep my weight in check. Fluctuation is normal but I don't want 5 pounds to suddenly become 10, 20, and so on. It took me two and a half years to reach my goal weight and I refuse to go back to where I once was. This just tells me I need to increase my exercise.
Yesterday I promised I would talk to you about being able to juggle your diet and still enjoy a glass of wine or a small piece of cake. Based on what I have learned, it is important to incorporate an extra fat daily into your diet (i.e. margarine, light dressing, almonds). Typically, what I do is eliminate my fat (which is almost always light dressing because I love ranch) at dinner, and then my evening snack. Instead, I will have a rum and diet coke or glass of wine as my "fat" for the day. I will make sure to point this out in future blogs on a day when I have decided to do some rearranging with my food groups. Refer to Dr. B from YourCity.MD to discover the best alcohol and dessert options with the least amount of caloric intake!
I didn't get where I am today without the incredible support of my husband and parents. Tomorrow I will discuss the importance of finding a support system in order to be successful...
