Wednesday Weigh In #1

So since I officially started my diet on Monday, I've lost a total of 4lbs. I'm sure it is all water weight but it makes me feel like I'm doing something right.

So what have I been doing? Well I am eating less (not starving myself but eating healthy portions). That was one of my biggest things is that I love to go back for seconds, even thirds. So I serve myself and eat what's on my plate and don't go back for seconds, even if I feel like I could eat more because I know I need to give my food a chance to digest and settle.

Another big thing is that I love to snack and that may be an understatement. I can snack right after eating a huge meal, which is not right. So I still snack but I've swapped out chips for grapes and popcorn for edamame. I'm also watching my serving size and calories.

Lastly, I've started walking a bit more. I'm not big into exercising but I love to walk. So during my lunch break, I walked to Whole Foods, which is about a 20 minute walk. I had a dentist appointment and instead of taking the elevator, I took the stairs. Just simple things but it is better than nothing!

I'm hoping to post a Wednesday weigh in every week. I think it will keep me honest and motivated.


  1. Congratulations on the loss! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you :)

  2. That's great, Christina!! Keep up the awesome work! It really is about small changes and being consistent. :)

    I love the idea of a Wednesday Weigh-In! I will definitely have to partake once I finish sprucing up and updating the pages of my blog!
