I hate making excuses but I think that claiming bloat from my monthly cycle is a valid one.  However, I can’t claim that my eating has been spot on, either.  I usually track every single thing I put in my mouth, including all the BLT’s (bites, licks, and tastes), but I noticed I stopped doing that this week.  It started last Friday when we ate out and I just didn’t feel like recording everything.  Almost every day I had something extra, a pudding cup, a few extra bites of rice, etc, that I didn’t record and though it doesn’t seem like a big deal, it can add up over the week! All it takes is 3,500 calories to equal a pound of fat, so if I ate 500 extra calories a day, that would reduce my weight loss by/make me gain a pound.

This week I will be more diligent in not only recording everything, but making sure I plan what I’m going to eat at least one day in advance.  I have been doing that more, and it really helps me.  If I have a plan, I stick to it better than if I just record things as I eat them.  My goal is to lose 2 lbs (or more, if the bloat diminishes on time) so that I can once ahead get ahead of my stickK.com goal.  Getting this close to it makes me nervous–I like to have some wiggle room for weeks like this when I can’t help what mother Nature does to my body.

Here’s to a good week!  Do you have any goals this week or anything you want to accomplish?

  1. Those BLT’s are evil! It’s amazing how easy it is to eat several hundred calories that way! Bloat IS a good reason, I gain like 3 lbs. every month. It’s horrible. Give it time, eat good, track and it will go away. :-)
