A Good Week (Week 6)

This is Week 6 for me and it was a good week. I discovered that I like romaine lettuce with cherry tomatoes tossed with a bit of balsamic vinegar dressing and topped off with a scoop of tuna salad. It's filling, palatable, and good for me.

I'm being thoughtful about my food choices. I'm not depriving myself of anything, just living/eating in moderation. Prior planning is crucial and then I'm not obsessing about food all the time. If I eat a lot of carbs during the day, I go low(er) carb for dinner. I'm also on the treadmill 6 days a week, 25 minutes per day, 1.5% incline at 3.1 mph.

I did make a sad discovery this week though. I had a s'more...and hated it! I think if it would have been dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate it would have been tolerable....but it was disgustingly sweet. No more s'mores.

This week I lost 3 lbs. My total weight loss at the end of Week 6 is 5 lbs. I've been yo-yo-ing a lot during this 6 week period, yet am pleased with being 5 lbs. down. I journey with this lifestyle improvement in 10 week increments, so there are 4 weeks to go.

More celebrations are coming up this weekend with our son's birthday and our wedding anniversary.  If I plan ahead, I'll be fine.

I've linked up to Kathy at House of Hills. Please go and visit to see how the other ladies are doing. Join in if you wish. I've found it's easier to be with the group to encourage one another, get good ideas on what works, and to have an accountability group that can keep me motivated during my journey. 

How was your week?


  1. Good job on your loss! That is awesome! Keep up the good work!

  2. You are doing SO great!!! So proud of you. You are absolutely going to hit your goal. I'm sure of it!

    The fact that you hated the S'more - amazing. That sounds really good right now. LOL! However, I know it would be too sweet. Once you rid yourself of the sweets for awhile, they are just TOO sweet when you go back.

    Have an awesome weekend! Sounds like a fun one!


Thank you for stopping by and if you leave a comment...well that's just icing on the cake!
