I'm a little delayed in posting my 12 week totals. I went away for the weekend with friends. But I took my portable scale and weighed in on time (Sat. morning, June 14). I lost 2 pounds this past week, for a total of 38.6. I'm very happy with that.
This weekend, as I traveled with friends, I discovered that it is possible to stay on track with my program even while vacationing...at least for 3 days! We ate in restaurants a total of 5 times. My plan was to ask the cooks to prepare my meal specially, but I chickened out. I chose a menu item and just had them remove what I couldn't have. So I ate a grilled Chicken Salad 3 times!! They were all bigger than what I needed, but I just didn't finish them, and I was careful with the dressing. But another meal that worked for me was a garden omelet made with egg beaters. It was already on the menu. What I didn't do, but hopefully will be bold enough to try soon, is ask for the chicken/eggs to be cooked without oil. But for this "vacation" experience, I just took it as prepared.
I also enlisted the girls I was traveling with to be aware of my situation, and help me to remember to eat on time (every 2-3 hours). However, that was no problem for them since I kept saying "I'm hungry!". I know I shouldn't still be hungry on this program, but I still have days that I am. It's good to be hungry at meal time, but I often feel hunger about 20min. after a meal. I've been told it is digestion, but it sure feels like I'm hungry! But I drank water (and a few Diet Cokes :), and kept myself distracted.
We visited Hershey, PA, so while at Chocolate World I did allow myself two dark chocolate Hershey's miniatures after the ride. At another point I also had a mini milk chocolate.
Glad to be home where eating right is easier, but glad I didn't pass up the opportunity just because of my program.
