Changes in Attitude

I haven't had any "Changes in Latitude", but have had some "Changes in Attitude". In case you are wondering, yes, I am a big Jimmy Buffett fan! My playlist when I mow is almost entirely Jimmy Buffett!
Anyway, since I am actually seeing the numbers on the scale declining and using Lose It to keep track of what I eat and how much I exercise I have noticed a slight change. Now when I get a craving or am offered something sweet, I am starting to think, well do I really want that and is it worth the extra calories and/or the time I should spend on the treadmill to make up for eating it? Are there other options that might be a better choice? I decided when we go to the lake on the weekends, I will still watch what I eat and track it in Lose It if possible, but weekends are mini vacations, so I am not stressing over it. And I am not taking a scale to the lake. I even had dessert twice this weekend......And guess what?! I am still loosing weight!
As of this morning I have officially lost 10 pounds in 30 days. I admit, it would be nice to see the scale moving faster, but I also want to do it healthfully and want it to stay off. The chances of it staying off are better if it comes off slowly. As each pound fades away, I don't want to see it ever again! : )

Behind & Overdue

Yep, I am behind and overdue again! Sorry!
I had my first monthly weight check appointment yesterday...........I am down 7 pounds! Not bad for a month, pretty close to my goal of 2 pounds per week! I would have made the goal if I had made more of an effort to get my walking in every day. But, hey, I think I did pretty well. I am watching what I eat & making better choices. I found an app for my phone that really helps! It is called Lose It. They have a free version which I am using and also a premium version for $39.99 per year. Not a bad price, but honestly the free version has everything I want! Check it out Lose It

Another update

It has been a week since I posted an update on the weight loss. All of the side effects have pretty much disappeared. Although the weight loss has slowed, only lost 1 pound this last week, but admittedly I have not upped my activity level & we went out to eat a few times in the last week.
It has been a month this saturday. I didn't take measurements in the beginning, but did make a note of them earlier this week. Even though the scale isn't moving as much as I would like, my clothes are a little looser and I have had numerous comments asking if I lost weight. So that is all good!
