The run continues....

Super quick checking in - Day 5 is under my belt and I'm 3/4 way through day 6.  Pretty exciting, and I'm definitely feeling better.  Tomorrow morning I will weigh and post it before we leave for the airport.  This morning when I got up and hit the bathroom, the scale was looming large - almost mocking me.  And it worked...I felt scared of it and pondered not weighing before I go.  But I've had the best week of healthy eating in...get this...a year.  I was losing last summer for sure, but my food was looser and had more refined carbs and convenience food like Luna bars, South Beach Bars, and other stuff like that.  This week it's been all real food.  In measured amounts.  No way I can not get on the scale in the morning...out of curiosity.

I am trying to have no expectations about the scale.  Expecting anything will mess with my head.

Off course, the other big thing looming is my weekend in San Antonio....I'm thrilled to pieces about it.  I'm not sure what I'm going to strive for foodwise - staying as clean as possible given essential absence of control over options, or just relaxing a little and trying to stay sane.  Clean vs. sane vs. reasonable vs. unbridled vacation eating.  This may sound sick or wrong, but the scale verdict will inform my intention for sure.  Whatever, I love Mexican food and hear it is great in SA.  I will partake to some degree.  Can you believe how I'm ruminating over this stuff?  Last thing I'll say is that I'm committed to having an awesome, fun, amazing, spiritual and guilt free time.  I will not allow my eating issues to interfere with a once in a lifetime event!

See you around the butt-crack of dawn!

  1. Here's my go to Tex-Mex menu - 10-15 chips. Yep, I gotta count them out. Tortilla soup, which is usually chicken broth-based, followed up with fajitas! All flavorful, all good, but less heavy than the enchilada meals. There is a fabulous place on the riverwalk, been there since the 40's or 50's where this stuff is Yummy! I was just there in March, but I cannot remember the name. But it think it's one of the oldest places on the walk. Enjoy yourself and congratulations on your success. You are doing great.

  2. No, do not let eating issues interfere with this trip. Mexican food can be very OK, if it's not smothered in cheese or served with tons of fried chips. Good luck tomorrow, at the butt-crack of dawn. May the scale give you the encouragement you need!

  6. I think Roxie is talking about Casa Rio? My take on the eating in SA - you're on vacation...enjoy yourself in moderation. Congrats on having such a good string of days and good luck with the scale tomorrow!

  9. Leslie, have fun on your trip! In all these years I've never deprived myself of Mexican food (I live in Arizona!) I normally eat a fajita-type dish with corn tortillas and try to limit the chips.

    Congratulations on the weight loss!
