Day 6 & 7

Not bad, not bad at all. I survived Cafe Rio on Saturday. No problem here. I just ordered a salad like usual and asked for an extra plate. Then I took most of the lettuce, pico de gallo, guacamole, and black beans and let Belle and Jer eat the rest. It was fantastic!

Then there was lunch at Nana's house on Sunday. They had shredded pork sandwiches on fresh rolls, corn on the cob, strawberry pie, cupcakes, and a bowl full of mini chocolate bars. I had caesar salad and tomato slices. I also opened up a can of diet Dr. Pepper, had about 3 sips, decided I didn't want it and gave the rest to Tre.

I feel normal otherwise. If you can call me normal. I really want this to work. I would hate for all this hard work to go down the drain as soon as I start eating real food again. Not that fruits and veggies aren't real food, but you know what I mean.

Weight as of Monday morning: 131.8

My goal is to stay between 125 and 130 year round. This is easy for me around Christmas time (must be all that holiday cheer) but seems to be a little more difficult in the summer months. Crazy.

I'm thinking that if I can resist Nana's strawberry pie, I can resist anything as long as I put my mind to it. The trick was deciding before hand that there would be no question. I made my decision and I was not going to back down. I wanted to be in control, not the other way around. Bring on week 2!

Way to go! Making the decision beforehand to stay in control is definitely the way to go. You resisted Cafe Rio (which takes Herculean strength) and Nana's food. You can do anything now!!
