Wednesday weigh-in

It's the end of week one of the 25 lb weight loss challenge and it's time to share your results. How did you do?

I'm pleasantly surprised that I lost 2 lbs this week, despite the pizza episode while moving on Sunday. It's always nice to reinforce that you can have a little splurge as long as you keep the rest of the week's meals in check.  I am sure that carrying boxes up and down stairs for days has helped as well.  I didn't get in much formal exercise this week as every free moment seems to be taken up with this move, but I'll have time to head to the gym tomorrow morning.  Watch out treadmill, here I come!

The biggest change I have made this week is not snacking after dinner. If I get hungry at night, I just have a few honey wheat pretzels (Walmart brand are really good), a hard boiled egg white or some fruit.  No more chips or cookies. Seems to be working and I am looking forward to seeing next week's numbers after throwing a little more exercise into the mix.

Well, how did you do?
