Future MILF Weigh-In: New Commitment Week 3

Saying I am frustrated would be an understatement. I tracked all my calories this week, went to the gym 4 times and somehow I managed to pick up .2 pounds. Intellectually I know that it could be remedied by one good trip to the bathroom, it could just be water, the weight training I started, etc. but it is still a real downer after feeling like I was making good progress and had turned things around.

On the positive side, things do feel like they are fitting better and I feel good! I also got all of my water in every day. Not so good, the lunches that were ordered in all week and we ate through lunch. I tried to order good choices (like salad and chicken breast) and estimate the calories on the high side if I had any doubts.

You know, it's funny. I find that is soon as I go outside of eating things that I know EXACTLY how many calories there are, I struggle. I was doing so well all week, loosing a few pounds and then yesterday I had lunch in at work and dinner out with my son and BOOM add a pound! Like, you, I felt like I was making good choices (eating only the turkey and veggies from inside the sandwich, no bread, then chicken and string beans for dinner).

I'm convinced that there are a lot of hidden calories in most food we eat out. Sauces, spreads, oils they are cooked in, etc.

But what to do?

Hang in there, man. Hopefully you won't have to eat lunch at work like that every day next week!?

Just hang in there, the scale will right itself for you.

Well, at least you made me laugh: "Intellectually I know that it could be remedied by one good trip to the bathroom" - chin up kiddo! You can do this!
