?Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! ?
So I wanted to share my success from this week! So after being knocked down to a 1200 calorie diet after my disappointing 0.6 lb loss last week, I am excited to tell you that I lost 4.4 lbs this week!!! I made sure I had an empty bladder before my weigh in (since last time I learned that it can add about 0.6 lbs to your weight) and I worked out twice during the week. I never felt hungry and I had a ton of energy.
Lessons learned in my first 3 weeks of JC-RR:
1. Check your plan for correct program (regular or RR)
2. Pee before you get on the scale
3. If you aren't losing weight, talk to your JCC about going down on calories
4. Don't beat yourself up if you cheat one day, you can always come back the next week
Now, I have been asked why I am not telling my mom about being on the plan. It is because of the price of the plan and her lack of success on the plan in the past. She thinks it is a waste of money because she didn't lose. So I am planning on losing enough weight for her to notice the difference in me, and if she asks how I've lost the weight, I'll tell her.
Last week I was extremely busy and rarely had a moment to rest, so I think that may have kept my hunger down. This week will be a challenge because I will be back at work and will have a lot of time sitting and having "boredom hungry". I am going to get some sugar-free gum and hope that it, plus drinking a lot of water, will help to keep me from getting too hungry so I do not over eat and go over my 1200 calories.
