Weekly Weigh in Saturday 11/26/11

Down one pound from last week!  Considering that the last time I exercised this week was Monday I am amazed.  I was hoping to just stay the same as last week. 

Thanksgiving went really well.  I knew what we were having and I mentally planned what I would be putting on my plate before we got there.  It is amazing how eating slowly helps you to enjoy the food more and to get full easier.  Previously I would have barely tasted the food as I shoveled it in my mouth, then gone for seconds, thirds, etc.  I even allowed myself a sliver of pecan pie.  I love pecan pie, it is my favorite.  I usually have a huge piece, and then another, with ice cream.  This year I had the tiniest piece, not even close to a whole slice of pie.  I was amazed after I ate it extremely slowly how I enjoyed it and was satisfied.  Intellectually I know these things as I've dieted my whole life, but it still has the ability to amaze me.

Exercise has been hard for me this week.  I went to an aqua class on Monday, but since then I haven't done anything.  My boyfriend has been sick, and his coughing and snoring has not allowed for the best night's of sleep.  I'm waking up tired and not motivated to exercise.  After work I've been busy with holiday preparations.  None of these are good execuses, but they are the reasons.  Starting today I'm getting back on the exercise wagon.  BF is feeling better, so sleep should get better too.

Ok, I think I've rambled enough for one long boring blog.  I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving! 


  1. My sister and I were talking about that on Thanksgiving how when you have to eat slow and chew every bite good you really get to taste and appreciate the flavors more!

  2. Yay! Losing on Thanksgiving week... Impressive!

  3. I love that when we eat slowly, we can still enjoy the good foods. And I have found that I socialize so much more as im not so busy stuffing my face :o)
