Weigh-In Wednesday

Burst into Summer Challenge @ Sisterhood of the Shrinking JeansOkay, so...

I have a bit of a confession to make.

I didn't actually step on the scale last week.

I forgot.

So I just kinda fudged the number.

I figured if I reported a loss of 0.6, I could easily lose it the following week if need be. You know, a realistic number where I wouldn't get caught in my lie.

But I kinda got caught anyway.

Because this week, I am suddenly down 3.4 pounds!

And y'all KNOW there's no stinkin' way I actually lost that much in just one week!
But I can chalk up that success ~ over the last TWO weeks Flirty 2 ~ to virtually no snacking of any kind (it happened just one evening over the last week and a half, and it was two large pancakes smothered in butter and swimming in syrup.... mmmmmmmmm, delicious!) and really watching my portions at mealtimes.

And the nicest thing is, I haven't really been thinking about it much.  It's really only crossed my mind a couple of times when I wanted to eat late at night and I forced myself to be content with a cup of green tea.  I have not gotten my daughters involved in meal- and snack-planning yet like I said I wanted to, but one thing I've noticed myself doing is making sure I eat only what I give them or tell them to eat.  And sometimes I just don't, even when they are.

(Since June 1)
So maybe I'm finally getting somewhere!
