I will not let myself get discouraged! I did lose a pound this week. And at first I found myself thinking "Only one pound?" But the fact that it was a loss, not a gain is the important fact. I know that I am doing things correctly. Trying to lose it fast has always been my problem in the past. I would all but starve myself, lose the weight and then in no time at all, I would gain it all back plus some. This time will be different as I don't feel that I am 'dieting'. I am going more for a healthy way to eat. So when I reach my goal, I can just continue as I was doing and it will not come back.
I have been concerned all week about a birthday party (my great grandson is going to be 2) that I am going to tomorrow. As so often is the case, it is at Peter Piper Pizza. Did I mention that I LOVE pizza?? Well, I looked up nutritional values for them and decided that the calories plus the money would not make any sense. So I am going to fix myself a bowl of fruit and eat that as others are chomping down on pizza. Plus I will eat before I go so I won't even feel hungry. My fruit and a diet drink will more than satisfy me. And by the time the next Peter Piper Pizza birthday party rolls around, the family will be asking "Gee, are you losing weight?" That will 'taste' a hundred percent better than the pizza!!
