After the 3 pound gain on Thursday, I was a bit worried I would have to add the final $5.00 to the competition pool. I really don’t want to be the worst loser in the last week of the competition. The weight hung around on Friday, dropped a little on Saturday and then a nice dip down this morning.
I’m almost back to my all time low. I probably will not reach my goal before Wednesday, but I should be getting close. I might be able to get there by next weekend. I just have 1.9 pounds to drop. I am not trying to maintain my weight at 159. I just want to crack the 160 barrier and then I am done. I need to get down below 160 by next weekend so I can enjoy my birthday cheats.
My birthday was back on the 7th but I held off all celebrating until the end of the office competition which means I will be celebrating my birthday next weekend. 😀

Snack – Turkey burger with cheese
Calories – 1350
I’m a bit surprised by the number this morning because my calories have been high this weekend. 1750 on Friday and 2000 on Saturday. Good thing the car was dead because I was going to hit Taco Bell HARD!
Nice to have a pleasant surprise. I have 6 days to drop 1.9 pounds and be done with my two-year diet. I guess I won’t be able to enjoy the Wednesday lunch. I sure hope Cindy doesn’t order the seafood feast!
Ok. I am finally sick of turkey burgers. It took a while, but I am sick of them. I am sick of baked chicken or broiled chicken or chicken. Good thing I am near the end of the road for this diet because I am SICK SICK SICK of my current meal plan.
I can’t wait to add some carbs back into the mix.
I plan to add fruit and oatmeal back into the mix for breakfast and then beans and rice for a while for dinner. It will be interesting to see where my weight balances out when I add the carbs back.
Tip Of The Day!
Don’t let stress derail the diet!
Easier said than done. It is very easy to use food for comfort and to TEMPORARILY relieve stress.
And by temporarily, I mean for mere minutes. As soon as you are done eating, the stress is still going to be there and then you can add guilt to the list. 😛
Don’t do it. Find another way to relieve anxiety and stress.

Don’t use food for comfort!!!
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
