Portion control is also a biggie for me. I make something healthy but then I keep eating and eating it. Sigh. I'm so used to eating two or three helpings. Though I'm doing better than I anticipated. Nine days ago, I would come to work without eating breakfast, then get hungry and troll people's desk for candy. Then I'd either go out to lunch or order a big lunch from a restaurant that delivers. I didn't do that all week. Well, I did go to Bob Evans on Friday but I ordered from their Fit Menu and just had some scrambled eggs, toast, and a parfait. I didn't even eat all the parfait because I felt full. My biggest downfall is boredom at home and eating off Queen's (Chunkmaster doesn't leave left over's) plates or dishing myself up another bowl of something.
Another big issue for me this week was Queen's sixth birthday. I did succumb and eat one pepperoni pizza, a piece of cake, and a scoop of ice-cream. I should feel guilty about that but it was very good!
My birthday is Friday! I'm not ordering cake and since I spent all my money on Queen's birthday, I doubt I'll do anything for mine. Basically, I think I'm screwed on my birthday until the Queen turns eighteen. At least Chunkmaster and hubby's birthday are close together too, so I'm not suffering alone.
Results. I know that's what you're looking for, huh? Well, to be honest I'm confused about that. I stepped on my scale this morning and it said 150.5. Which means I lost 4.5 lbs, but then I get to work and step on the little scale that we have here, and it says 153 something, so who knows. I'm gonna go with my home scale because, well the numbers are better.

To be honest, I don't feel like I lost weight yet. And my weight usually fluctuates between 150 and 155, I really believe the real test will be the end of next week. I'll be doing the happy dance if I manage to get under 150 lbs. I hope that happens.
Until next time. Have an awesome week!
