I've been trying really hard to lose weight. The week before last, I was close to reaching the 25 pounds down mark, so I went out and bought myself a reward. I knew it was premature, but having given up chocolate a few weeks before that, I was pretty sure it would happen. Then I got on the scale last Saturday and was shocked to see I'd gained 2.5 pounds. No reward for me.
After that, I rejigged the diet plan. Chocolate is still out. I also committed to drinking a lot more water everyday and cut out an additional 400 calories. I am working to keep my calorie sources to a ratio of 50% carbs, 30% fats and 20% protein. Happily, it has paid off. When I weighed myself today, I was down 5 pounds... with a total loss of 26 pounds.
These are my reward:
Next time, my reward will likely be new pants. The ones I've got are getting kind of baggy.
