As the title suggests, I logged a loss this week! Yippee!
I lost 1.5 lbs. this week. For the past few days, I’ve been doing really well. Total loss = 26.8 lbs.
There have been quite a few times when I just wanted to eat something that I know isn’t going to help me lose weight, but I have persevered!
This is one of the most difficult times to stick to a diet. Easter candy is by far the best candy ever. And just last night I noticed an entire row of Cadbury chocolates that I have never seen before. You know how much I love Cadbury!
Speaking of chocolate, I have found that I would much prefer the little chocolates that are on my plan than any of the ones I can buy at the store. They are delicious and really help a sweets craving!
I make one exception to the rule. When I want a treat, I buy myself a Chobani almond coco loco Flip—because they are just so yummy. I feel like it’s a healthier alternative and it doesn’t cause me to fall off the wagon and consume more and more and more and more…
I also allow myself my coffee with creamer or a latte—usually twice per day. My coffee is one thing that I will not give up! It hasn’t hindered my weight loss, if anything—the slow activity of sipping on the warm beverage keeps me from eating.
I have also found that my Dutch Chocolate protein shakes are the most satisfying to me. I’ve been out of the chocolate shakes and I really miss them! I will get a shipment today—hopefully!
I’ve started adding 2 Tbs. of unsweetened cocoa powder to my strawberry or vanilla shakes and I find that it has the same effect. I looked it up and it turns out that cocoa is a potent appetite suppressant! Who knew? But that explains it.
How did you do this week?
