Notes on a successful week

emoticonI lost 2.2#'s this week! emoticon emoticon emoticon

That's my biggest weekly loss ever. Two things I did different.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
I tracked for a whole week, eating the things I loved, and ate within my calorie range. I ate a LOT of veggies.

My calorie range is 1200-1550. Tallying what I did for the last week, I averaged 1265 calories per day. This surprises me, because most days are around 1450, one day was 1647, and one day was 1261, but added together and averaged its lower. No wonder! But I didn't feel deprived at all. This is really a breakthrough!

emoticonI also let myself feel hunger every day, at some point during the day, and then allowed myself to feel it for an hour or more without having to satisfy it right away. The feeling comes and goes, and it wasn't unmanageable. It was something that told me I was doing it right. If I'm always satisfying hunger, I'm never going to let myself become that naturally thin person I want to be. I can always eat later, there's no starvation going to be happening anytime soon here.

I did three hikes this week, yoga three times, some walks. After yesterday's 4 mile hike I wasn't dead tired and laying around, but energized. I came home and did some chores and all the time was amazed at the energy I had.

And I was naturally drinking a lot more water this week.

Seems I had a week where everything was coming together! Awesome!!!!!

    I like the idea of feeling the hunger pains and learning to wait a while and then eat. Sometimes we just get into a routine of eating because the clock says to but we may not really be hungry.
