The first gain is the hardest...

For the first time since I started trying to lose weight I have gained. Now, I am not surprised. I have been horrible this week :( I have had horrible PMS, cravings, feeling hungry and counting every single thing that went in my mouth (Insert That's what she said joke). I am not sure what happened this week to really set me off, but regardless it did. Now, before you think I am going back to my old ways - let me digress - I AM NOT. I was sad when I saw the gain, but I know it is part of this journey. I am not going to give up! I have one week left of my Diet Bet and I am going to win. I am tracking every single thing, upping my water intake and moving more! 

This past week was a fun week! We were snowed in, we stayed up late and watched movies. I made healthy snacks, but may not have stayed in my portion control. That is key for me. Watching my portions. For some reason I struggle with that. I have been an over eater for 10+ years now. It is going to change, but like everything, not over night.  Let's be honest though. There are no magic secrets, the basic principal to weight loss is simple. Eat less, move more.

Something so simple, is so hard for me (and others). But I am doing it. Even with minor hiccups. I am doing this. Take a minute and let me know how your week has been? Are you on track? Any tips for stopping the cravings and having more discipline? 

I wrote a little bit more about it on Skinny Meg today, if you want to check it out.
