I was a little disappointed that I hadn't at least stayed the same, especially since I know I did well with portion control and allowing my stomach to growl between meals. Despite it being that T.O.M., I did none of the frantic gorging that often seems to accompany that week. In fact, I believe I snacked in the evening just ONCE this last week!!! Pretty proud of that, actually.
But I've also been sick for the last week and a half. Which explains not really caring WHAT I ate, even if I controlled my portions and snacking impulses relatively well. It also explains the lack of exercise ~ normal breathing alone has been challenging enough! I did mow lawn twice ~ which amounts to a combined total of 3.5 hours of pushing a mower ~ and go for one or two 2-mile walks. So maybe I didn't do too badly in that area either!
So I'm not too unhappy with the little gain, mostly because I know it didn't come from a lack of self-control for a change!! But it is going to make my goal for this particular challenge a little more, well...
