eurydice - mrs harris: mangofandango

All weeks should start like this

Three weeks back on Weight Watchers, and I'm down 10.9 pounds. I gained 19 pounds during the covid lockdown (seriously, I thought it was a little funny that I hit that number, too), so it's a bit of a relief to get over half of that off already. I had help with hormonal stuff this past week, but I'm finding it relatively easy to stick to the healthier choices so far. I even made a carrot cake with orange mascarpone frosting today and had a single small piece with no desire to eat any more. Not because it wasn't good, but because I had what I wanted. Getting rid of most of the sugar from my diet kills my desire for snacking, and my appetite itself seems a bit smaller when it comes time for meals. Most of the time, anyway. :)

In other good news, Alicia got her second shot this morning. So far, she hasn't had any side effects, so fingers crossed it stays that way.
