Well, the wedding was really nice. The reception was very interesting, and my dress soo cute! Luckily they only served sandwiches, fruit, and pasta salad, although i still went over on my calories.
I've been tracking them in my journal, along with my calorie budget, and I'm beginning to see a pattern. I do really well eating and staying under my calorie limit for the first 2-5 days of the week, but then towards the end, I go over a bit. So now that I see it, that'll be what I work on next. I also haven't been journaling over the weekend, since we're usually out and about, but I'll have to work on that too.
Now, for the good news, Jeff and I got a digital scale on Sunday, and weighed ourselves. I have lost 1.2 pounds since the last time I weighed myself, YAY! And Jeff has lost 6 pounds since he was last weighed. He was pretty sick in between then and now, and that could be why, but he seemed a little motivated by it, which is great! This pound is the first pound I've ever lost in my life by dieting. I was deathly sick about 5 years ago, and lost 24 pounds in 19 days in the hospital, but I don't count that.
Firstly because I was barely eating anything (mostly soft foods and liquids), and then because I wasn't trying to lose weight, and it jumped right back on my butt. But now that I've seen a tiny bit of progress, I know I'm doing something right! So I'm planning to weigh myself on Sundays only (so I don't focus on that too much) and measure myself as well, which I should do today to get a baseline
