"This is the stuff that gets under my skin, but I've got to trust You know exactly what You're doing."
Ups and downs, isn't that the way life goes sometimes?
Two weeks ago, I lost four/tenths of a pound.
One week ago, I gained one pound.
You could call this a plateau, but I simply believe it's a slight lack of self-discipline on my part. I'm working hard to stick with the diet this week, but with luncheons and socials galore it's becoming difficult.
I do think about things before I eat them and I order healthy items from a menu, but I need to work harder. My health and happiness is much more important than bread and french fries.
So what do you do when you've hit a "plateau" or have temptations all around you?
I believe I owe everyone an update. Life has been hectic lately & I've been struggling on the diet front.
Last week, I gained 0.6 pounds. That's not much at all, but I definitely don't want it to become a weekly occurrence. It's gotten harder for me to avoid eating out (as it's a social aspect of my life). I do, however, order with my weight loss in mind. Hopefully this will help me move closer to my goals.
We'll see how I do this week. I pray I have the strength and will to continue doing well on Jenny Craig. I truly love it, but I don't want life to get in the way. Of course, my weight loss will make my life better.
Now, I'm going to put on my happy face!

BUYING NEW CLOTHES, FITTING INTO OLD CLOTHES & FEELING CONFIDENT IN THEM.
As most of you know, I'm a shop-a-holic. If someone says shopping, I say when? Lately, I've discovered that my clothes are bigger and my waist is smaller. What a wonderful feeling! Although I can't buy new clothes (grad student budget), it's exciting to look for inspiration from magazines & other blogs and recreate it from my current wardrobe.
Doing something as simple as putting a cool shirt over a dress, makes one feel like they are wearing something new. Ten pounds ago, I refrained from being adventurous because my confidence level was low. Now, I simply go for it. I mean why not?
