I’ll be honest. This week was a bit of a struggle. The first official week of my dietary change came with a visit to the doctor that left me far from comfortable, a networking event, box seats to a Buffalo Bandits game, day trip to SUNY Fredonia and, with an attempt not to over-share too much, the one week I crave everything greasy, salty and chocolately. All things considered, I think I did pretty well.
There were some small instances where I strayed a bit from my diet, I know I know shame on me. But I am owning up to it and will by no means lie and say I was a perfect angel this past week.
Throughout all of it I stayed strong and had no alcoholic beverages! Yay me! I even packed meals to take to Fredonia with me. And when I did slip up it was definitely in moderation. My self control is improving a bit.
There has been some progress made. Getting ready for my exciting night of bowling on Saturday helped me realized that not a single pair of jeans in my wardrobe actually fit me anymore. And yes, in a very good way. I need to invest in a belt…or two. Considering just a few weeks ago I couldn’t fit comfortably in most of them I’d say its a decent accomplishment. By the way I own 53 pairs of jeans. That’s not a joke.
So, I’m pumped that I’m dropping some weight, but I can’t wait to start leaning out. I made it through official week 1 and it’s time start cutting out more of those slip ups.
