Good morning friends!
Yesterday was a great day for me. I felt good, I ate well, I exercised, I made good choices, I had fun. What more can you ask for?
The only issue I had at all yesterday was that we went to the grocery store to get some things and they had my very favorite flavor of Blue Bell ice cream in the world. It is only available a couple of times a year and I used to buy up the stock of it when I found it - but that was before I was banded. I haven't had any in almost 2 years. I was super hungry when we got to the store (which is usually a no-no) so when I saw that ice cream (Tin Roof for those wondering) I reallllllllllllllly wanted some. I forced myself to walk away and go down the aisle to pick up a box of the sugar free Blue Bell Moo Bars I've been having instead. Still delicious and only 100 calories for a bar. Vanilla ice cream with chocolate coating. They were out of them. I nearly cried! But I kept telling myself that it was only ice cream and not the end of the world. I kept in mind the weigh in for today and held strong. I can do this. And all my hard work paid off.
That is a loss of 2.2 pounds this week! And after my hiccup of gaining 3 pounds the 1st week of the challenge I am now 1.4 down from my beginning challenge weight!
I am super excited for our DFW BOOBS lunch this afternoon. I hope you all have a great Sunday!
