My gluten free weight loss journey, week 4


I have to confess, I have gotten a bit lax with my eating habits this week.  My weight is holding steady for now.

We got a digital scale, only to find it was 5.5 pounds too heavy.  We tested a container of 20-pound cat litter to see if it was accurate.  I thought a digital scale would be more accurate; it isn’t.  But it’s getting really hard to read those small little lines on our manual scale.

We are getting ready for our trip to Virginia this weekend.  I have been saving left over chicken, lamb and pork chops to take with me in my trusty cooler.  Best thing I ever bought.  We will be spending at least 10 hours in the car, if not more.  I am bringing snacks and sandwiches with me, as we won’t be stopping for lunch or dinner, in order to save time on the road.  At this point, I am not worried about losing weight, only not being hungry.

The real work will begin once we return, and join Weight Watchers.  It will be a challenge, but I am determined to succeed.

We have been trying to walk at least 3/4 of a mile every day.  We will work toward increasing that steadily.  But the hot Tennessee summer is making it a bit difficult to walk.  At least the humidity here is not too bad compared with the North East.

I will try to write at least one post while I am vacationing, but it depends on the wifi and my having to type on my iPad.   I will resume my regular posting once we return.

It should be a fun trip!

    Did the 20# cat litter tub weigh 20# on the old scale? If not, then your 5.5# difference may be due to the fact that the cat litter container’s weight would be additional to the 20# of actual cat litter.

      You know I never checked it. Good point. We’re subtracting 5.5 from the weight on the scale we weighed the litter on, not the old one.
