Operation Weight Loss The Incredible Shrinking Woman - Week 15
I can't believe this is week 15 in my journey! I have come a long way. This week I am down another 1.4 pounds bringing my grand total to 34.4 pounds lost and next week it will be 35 pounds! I am elated, can you tell? Please excuse my overuse of exclamation marks.
Eat Smart Precision Pro Kitchen Scale to try out and I am so happy because this thing is a life saver.
I no longer have to guess about the weight of a piece of fish or shrimp that I am eating/cooking. This scale was ready to go right out of the box and is simple to use - you just choose your standard of measure and place the food on it. It works up to 11 pounds for all of you pastry chefs out there! It is really inexpensive -at $25 you can purchase one on Amazon and get free shipping too. Really useful.
Another thing I did this week was purchase a pair of Joe Jeans. Not something I would do normally but this was a birthday gift and I figure a great pair of jeans was in order considering all of my hard work. The thing about the jeans is that they are GOAL jeans. I can't wear them outside yet, I have a serious muffin top when I put them on but another 10 pounds or so I should be golden. Having this pair of jeans is a great incentive to me, I think about them when I am exercising and the going gets tough! And who knows, I may not have to lose 10 pounds to fit them!
So my tips this week are - make a goal for yourself (other than weight) and when you achieve it reward yourself. We don't do this enough and little things make a big difference. My next tip is to get a kitchen scale and take the guesswork out of portion sizes. Finally, get moving - if you aren't exercising I hope I can encourage you to try even 15 minutes a day makes a difference!
Until next week, The Incredible Shrinking Woman signing off.........
Disclosure: I received the Kitchen scale for review but no other form of compensation was received and all of the opinions are my own.
