yippy skippy!

I went to WI last night, and, (are you ready for this?) I actually lost 1.8!! I have absolutely no clue how it happened because, as I said yesterday, I didn't make the best choices in the recent past, but of course I'm not complaining! :o) I finally busted out of the 190's and now I'm working on getting out of the 180's. I haven't been in this "decade" in a long time, so it's nice to be here.

I switched back to Flex yesterday because my portion sizes were getting out of control. I had that "I'm on TOM and it's not my turn so I deserve to eat whatever I want" mentality going on, and I needed to get back to the basics. I did really well yesterday. I drank all of my water (yay!) had at least six servings of fruits and veggies (yay!) and over two servings of dairy (yay) and my point total came to 24. My target is 25, but I didn't want to eat late at night when I wasn't hungry, so I didn't. An even bigger NSV for me is that I only "spent" 2 points in empty snacks. I ate a granola bar with a glass of milk last night for dessert, but all my other snacks were nutritious. That's a really big deal for me! It seems that every time I go from Core to Flex I've learned a new healthy habit that sticks with me. That makes me happy! :o)

Somehow our another I screwed up the links to everyone's blogs, so I'll work on fixing that today. I'm just stalking everyone on other people's blogs! :o)

Have a Great OP Day!!

Congrats!

I too am an unhealthy snacker...which is not truly "unhealty" I suppose by the world's standards (i.e., I don't eat true junk food), it's just that they don't add any nutritional value per se. For example, a serving of pretzels is not technically unhealthy (like chips or something), but it is not as good a choice as an apple.

Anyway, will do better each day.

Congrats again!
