This week I only lost a little bit, but at least I lost! I'm three lbs away from 140's which I haven't been since almost two years ago. Even though I've been eating pretty well I've noticed that no activity at all really puts a damper on my weight loss. The last three days I started working light activity in and I feel fine so I'm going to stick with it!

As for diet I have been sticking to my "Eat like a Queen for breakfast, Princess for lunch and Servant for dinner" mindset. Obviously throughout making sure I'm making healthy choices but not going super health nut just yet. Eating a low carb dinner like salad or fish and veggies at 5-6pm and no food after. 

There is tons of conflicting opinions and information regarding the not eating after dinner idea. After doing research essentially it's a very mild version of a fast. I eat the lightest meal for dinner because all I'm doing after dinner is going to sleep. That will help my digestive system do it's work a lot easier and not go into overdrive. Right now it's working for me because I am so inactive that it makes sense for me to help my system out as much as possible. 

I found after starting no eating after dinner, my appetite as a whole went down pretty quickly. Also, my portions are smaller and still make me full. And I'm not using that as a substitution to eat crap during the day. I'm still very mindful of what I'm eating all day long. But my downfall I've noticed are weekends. When we are out I want to drink and eat amazing, horribly fat food...etc. But overall I'm happy I'm still losing weight. Slower then doing it with full blown exercise, but I gotta work with what I got!

Oh and yesterday we went on a little shopping spree for moi. It was a little celebration for making it through the past three months of one bad thing after another. And an ode to losing weight and wanting to wear something besides work out pants again. I'm so confident I'll get into the 140's by the time this 4th week is over, I even bought a crop top. Seriously, the midget shirts I thought only 12 year olds could wear. There is light at the end of the tunnel :)
