Woo-Hoo! I got to move a marble to the Pounds Lost container. I lost ONE pound this week. I know it may not seem like a lot; however, it is the first step. This week was much better. Out of the seven days, six of those days I ate ALL the specific foods I needed to add into my diet. I switched from eating hard-boiled eggs to scrambled eggs, added all kinds of healthy stuff to my oatmeal, created a daily checklist, and cut out drinking coffee every day. I LOVE coffee, but it’s hard for me to drink it without some sugar and using one Truvia packet just doesn’t do the trick. So, I am temporarily cutting it out and will revisit it again later. The only coffee I had all week was a Mocha Latte with whipped cream at BAM. For me, Mocha Lattes are a taste of heaven. YUMMY!

I finished reading Jackie Warner’s book and will be using it for reference for the next couple of months. Ideally, I would love to lose a pound a week. However, I’m not setting a goal date to lose all the weight (too much pressure for me). This is not a diet that I will be on for a set amount of time just to lose weight. This is about creating a healthy lifestyle for myself and my family. My energy level is up, my attitude is great, and I’m ready for the next step.
