Weigh-In Wednesday Week 1


I was so excited to step on the scale and see a weight loss this morning! 

Down 1.4 lbs since Friday (since that's when I got my scale)

I don't know about you, but with my busy weekend and having two birthdays to celebrate at work it's been difficult to indulge and still watch my calorie intake. Even with the indulgements (indulge+moments), I've just changed my eating habits at night.

1.) No more snacking. Even mid afternoon, it has to be fruit or a granola bar if I want something.

2.) Hardly any carbs after lunch, with the exception of fruit (natural sugar) or a granola bar to tame the hunger. This also means I'm not having what I would refer to as a real meal. I didn't even use a plate the last two nights since all I was having were veggies and cheese. It also helped me feel like I was still "snacking" I think, lol.

My vaca starts today, so I'll be anxious all week to get back home and on my scale to survey the damage progress.

How'd you do this week? What works for you to help keep the afternoon snack attack at arms length?


  1. Hey! Found you through Weigh in Wednesday! Congrats on the loss!

    I actually am a big fan of snacking, so I might not be helpful there. Small, healthy snacks in between meals keep me from completely blowing my day on candy around 3pm. I know I will want something around then, so I have fruit on my desk or some nuts to keep me going. I try to keep the snacks under 150 calories and include a fruit or veggie :) Hope you do well on vacation!
