Week 4: This week threw me off

This week has thrown me off.  I can't quite put my finger on it.  Nothing was out of the ordinary but it just didn't feel normal.  I did lose 2 pounds which is still pretty great.  I am now at 259.2 and glad to be back in the 250s!  But even that feels off (okay maybe I was spoiled by my previous weigh-ins). 

We ate out on Saturday.  This is only the second time I've done it.  I'm still really uneasy not eating my dish of carefully measured food that I made in my crockpot.  I need to get over this because I leave for Disney in 21 days and will need to eat something while I am there! :)

The hardest part of changing my diet is finding the balance between eating enough calories to function, then eating enough to run and ultimately eating just the right amount to lose weight.  I should throw in that I am not hunger.  I literally have to force myself to eat most meals.  Last night was the first time in 4 weeks that I was actually hungry.  Hopefully, it is the start of keeping myself in the mood to eat.  

I've been really tired this week and that could be due to the fact that the past two weeks I have actually stuck to my workout routine.  I haven't talked myself out of a run or session at the gym.  Some nights I felt like I went kicking and screaming but I did it.

I think this week could be labeled as my first real challenging week.  I do need to reward my success and not focus on the nagging weirdness!  I drank water, I exercised, I lost weight and I tracked my food.  All little steps to keeping on track.  I just have to remember to take one day at a time.  

We've made it to week 4 and all the girls are figuring out what works for them.  It is much easier losing weight with a group of people that have your back and understand that you want to mix up a batch of cookie dough and scoop it out with potato chips!  

Until next week!        


  1. I have the exact same problem with food! I never seem to know if I'm eating enough or too much or too little. I drives me a bit bonkers!

  2. Way to go Brig (and the other girls!) Keep up the good work!

  3. Karen, not to mention the FItbit and MyFitnessPal don't agree on calories to eat. I'm like trying to eat around 1600 and hoping for the best! LOL

    Megs, thanks girl!
