Week 2 Weigh In

Today was my week 2 weigh in. Last week I was at 289 after losing 11 lbs my first week. Today I'm at 287, 2 lbs lost this week and 13 lbs lost all together! I'm so excited that I lost that much this week. I wasn't expecting to lose more then a pound, since last week I lost so much. I'm hoping from now on to lose at least 2-3 lbs a week. My goals are to lose 10 lbs a month and since I pledged to lose 50 lbs by May 31st that will get me to that goal!

I'm finding that I like to exercise, something that I never really thought would ever happen! I had to miss my aerobics class yesterday due to having a 5 year old with a really bad ear infection. I was kind of sad that I had to miss it, but taking care of my kids comes first. And while we were out taking him to the doctors we had to stop at walmart to get his prescription. I took the kids to get some McDonald's for breakfast, since we left pretty early and they were hungry. I got just enough for them, but I resisted the temptation and opted to eat when I got home instead. That's a first for me. Control feels good, I like it a lot!

This week I did have to face some pretty strong cravings for sweets, but I've come out on top and have chosen to stick to the healthier choices. Sugar-free cook and serve chocolate pudding is SO good, especially warm! Yum!! I highly recommend it! I hope you all are doing well! I look forward to reading your weigh-ins this week!
