This week, I lost ... well, I'm not sure. I'm pretty sure something's wrong with my scale. It said I lost 10 lbs and while I was happy, I knew something was wrong because then I'd step on again and it would go up or down a kilo or two. So I went out to get a new battery. No good. I put the new battery in but it started weighing before I even stood on it. There's definitely something wrong. I'm just going to keep going and get a new scale when I find a good one.
I'm not the kind of person who can just go by how I look or how my clothes fit. I can't see it on myself and I need to weigh in to check my progress.
I had challenged myself to not weigh at all since last Sunday. It had gotten out of hand, weighing myself several times a day. So I said this week, no weighing till Sunday, which is my weigh in day.
I upped my walking to 5 kilos which is a little over 3 miles and it takes about an hour. There's one big hill that's a killer but it feels good after I'm done, like a real accomplishment. For me, walking is the best, It's low impact and I can do it.
The best thing is, 95% of the time I feel like I'm eating well. I eat foods I like and I'm trying new things.
This was my breakfast yesterday. It was an egg white, with a thin slice of cheddar, some lettuce, and tomato on toasted rye bread. I loved it. It's 4 points.
The avocado dip from breakfast this week made me want to make some. I made this guacamole, mild because that's how I like it. It's 1 ripe avocado, 2 small tomatoes, diced, 1 small bell pepper, diced, half a small onion cause I'm not crazy about raw onion, but it was good in this. Also, I mixed in 1 light yogurt, the juice of 1 medium lime, salt and pepper to taste. I had 1/4 of the mixture with toasted pita wedges for a 4 point snack.
I don't have a total weight loss as of now until I get my new scale. If anyone has any tasty, light meals or snacks to recommended, I'd love them. Onward!
