338 and counting

I realized that I announced on Twitter five or six days ago that I was down 10 pounds, down to 338, but that I never wrote a blog post about it.

Down to 338!

I've been at 338 for almost a week now, which would normally frustrate me not losing at least one more pound in those days, but this week I'm happy about it.

You see, I've been to many parties this past week, and even had a couple at my place, and these parties were loaded with bad food. It made me feel good that I could maintain this little bit of weight loss while partaking in some of that bad food.

Yes, I had some of the bad food. Some pizza, some tasty bacon concoctions, some cookies, and some delicious chocolate dishes. But I didn't go overboard on any of it. I was really good taking small amounts of these things and being content with those small amounts.

If I completely cut out bad food I'm not going to make it. It's pretty much impossible to not have some bacon or cookies every now and then, so I'm not going to get mad at myself for doing that, but I am going to learn how to better monitor my amounts. I've been doing pretty good this past week with it, so let's hope I can continue.

Now to look forward to my first goal of getting below 330 so I can use my Wii Fit board. 329 here I come!
