This past Friday's weigh-in went well with a two pound loss. That brings my total weight loss to eight pounds since returning from vacation. Although I would love to step on the scale and see a five or six pound loss; I am just so grateful for any progress.
Over the past weekend I faced a little bit of a challenge. We had a birthday party for a dear friend and there was not only birthday cake, but there was also pecan pie there. Those are two of my favorite sweet treats. But, I am thrilled to report that I only had the smallest piece of birthday cake. Not only was it small, it wasn't a corner piece with a lot of icing, which is my favorite part of a birthday cake. I was so proud of myself for resisting the temptation to throw my will power out the window for the evening.
I feel like I am starting to make healthier choices without having to really think about it or feeling deprived of something.
This was just a short sweet entry to update my weight loss. Keep watching; I have some exciting things I've been researching. And, I will be sharing soon! God bless!
