Sticking to the plan

I’ve been sticking to my diet plan for the past week and I weighed myself today and I lost 3 pounds. I still haven’t caught up to my goal weight on my weight loss chart but atleast it’s moving in the right direction. I thought about what I had been eating that made me plateau and I realized that I was eating crap. I ate a giant stack of pancakes one day and on another day I ate mcdonalds chicken sandwich meal with fries and also Chik Fil-A that same day. So I was not eating strictly enough. I really fought my urge to eat a donut today. I drove past the donut shop and sat in my car for a full minute talking myself out of going in the donut shop. I didn’t go and I’m glad that I didn’t.

Today I ate:

Breakfast: Chobani flip pure pear & honey yogurt (140 calories)

Lunch: Organic Nutty Cranberry Salad with Lite Asian Sesame w/ginger soy Dressing (340 calories)

Dinner: quinoa with spaghetti meat sauce on it, I added a lil cheddar cheese and mango pickle to that with 15 calorie MinuteMaid lemonade (712 calories)

Snacks: I had snacks early this morning before breakfast. I had Red bean mochi ice cream and 2 starburst and 2 now & later candies (267 calories)

Today would have been perfect if I didn’t eat those snacks. My calories for the day came out to 1,459

My therapist wants me to think of rewards I can give myself for sticking to my diet. I’ve decided that if I stick to my plan for a week, I will get a margarita on Tuesdays, if I stick to my diet for 2 weeks, I will get a pedicure and if I stick to my diet for a month, I will buy myself something cute from either Lane Bryant, Torrid, Bath & Bodyworks or Ulta.
