Weigh-In Wednesday

Burst into Summer Challenge @ Sisterhood of the Shrinking JeansStill sloggin' through summer!

Again, no major comings or goings to report, but a small loss is a big deal in summer when there's no schedule, no routine, the days are lazy and the weekends filled with friends and family gatherings...

I'm down a measely 0.4, which brings me back (FINALLY) to my lowest point this challenge, which I reached several weeks ago. This current Sisterhood challenge is only two weeks away from ending, and though my ultimate goal will be a struggle indeed, it is technically still do-able.

I will just have to decide I really want it. And with my birthday, a weekend family gathering, and potentially a few days hosting my in-laws all in between now and the 31st, I will need all the determination I can muster!

One thing I've done consistently well this summer, even at gatherings and visiting at both parents' homes, is resisting the urge to snack in the evenings.  It happens on occasion, but hasn't been a regular occurrence like it once was, so I'm pretty happy about that.  That's probably the biggest battle in my weight-loss war.

Now if I could just learn to love replacing some of the things I eat both at mealtimes and when I allow snacking with fruits and vegetables, I'd be home free!!

Overcoming evening snacking is a great accomplishment!

Evening snacking is always a killer, but you just have to take it one step at a time. You knocked out the major evening snacking, now maybe try to replace one snack with a fruit or veggie? <--- says the person who struggles to eat any during the day!! :-)

Taking care of that night time snacking is a big deal! Just keep working on it and you will accomplish your goals.
