Fall Weight Loss: Week 13

I lost 1.4 pounds for a total weight loss of 35 pounds. I did my monthly measurements and I loss a little under 10 inches for the month of November.

I am so happy to say that this is the first time I didn't cheat on a major eating holiday. I stayed on my eating plan this week and only went out to eat for two dinner's. I have been doing well with planning ahead and making more servings of dinner to eat leftovers the next day. This has helped since I have to sometimes make nine different meals for my husband, daughter and I in one day! It helps to cook less by eating leftovers. For Thanksgiving Day my mother-in-law made turkey and then I made my low carb mash, low carb mac and cheese, brussels sprouts and low carb pumpkin cheesecake. I was so full and so satisfied and stayed on plan. 

I went out walking six days this week and took really long walks. I am really enjoying taking my daughter on longer and longer walks. I always worry that she will complain that she is tired but she hasn't yet. We had some really nice days this week so with her cousins over from Thanksgiving break we took them to the park a few times this week too. My in-laws stayed over my house for a few days out of the week so I didn't get to go to the gym at all. On Saturday it was cold and rainy so I didn't plan on walking. Then my daughter asked if we were going on a walk and I told her "later" hoping she'd forget. Once I said "later" she said "Yay, I love walking with my mommy!". Once she said that it motivated me to walk so the sneakers and jackets came out. We walked in the rain and she loved it! Sunday we took a family walk as the husband joined us on his day off.
