For a few weeks, I did really well and then my resolve wore out. Starbucks got in a new line of bakery goodies, and for a buck, after 2 pm, you could try the new line of croissants, coffee cakes, and other delectable La Boulange baked goods. I gave in twice! The treats are not so calorie and fat dense, but still my mindful eating became mindless dessert grazing. You would think that since I got a diet boost with having the 3 or more pounds of fibroids removed from me that I'd be on my way to a more noticeable weight loss. Nope. One week I lost another 3 pounds. Then a weekend of being nauseous left me at a weight number I've not seen in more than 3 years. Of course it was mostly dehydration weight loss! This week, back to my usual number. What I need to keep in mind is that I have kept over 55 pounds off of my body since March 2008. That's not too bad. However, what I tend to think about is the other 20 pounds or so that I had once lost and then put back. Now I may have only been down 70-75 pounds for a hot minute, and I mostly was down 60 pounds at my best, but I also had a wonderful amount of muscle tone, which is long gone. I know I can do it again it's just a matter of re-figuring out how...
