I know the road to weight loss is not paved with perfection but once in a while a perfect day is given to me and I love that day. Yesterday was a perfect diet day. I ended up with 1200 calories which included lots of veggies and protein. I lost a pound and a half for my efforts. Oh, I know it's just a fluctuation on the scale but Id rather it be fluctuating down instead of up!
All summer I have been keeping track of calories in my head and I have been maintaining, not losing. All the tiny ups and downs if averaged out would still come to 218 pounds. I reached that weight in May and I'm still there. The lowest I dipped this summer was 115. I've been as high as 221 during the last three months but always I level out at 118.
So now here I am this morning weighing 217 pounds. I've seen this weight a few times this summer but now in the autumn this weight means something different. Yesterday I once again returned to writing down my calories. I haven't done that since May and it was in May I stopped losing. So now I am seeing 217 for the last time because now I am on my way to losing weight again and not maintaining.
I'm excited about the journey.
So what did I eat yesterday? Here it is:
corn on the cob
I ate enough of that to equal 1200 calories.
