Weigh In Saturday!

Hello everyone!

Things have been really busy this week for me but they have also been very good.  I weighed in this morning at 253.5lbs!  Woohoo!  A great loss.  I am so happy.  I really gave it my all during my workouts this week and didn't treat myself with food. I am very happy with the progress.  I have lost 2.9lbs this week which is amazing!  What a great way to get things moving again.  

I have to admit that after tracking every morsel of food for a week I knew exactly what needed to be done to get that scale going in the right direction again.  I guess I had gotten a little lax, ok a lot lax, but I am glad to see that the scales didn't head up up and up like they would have before.  The check in over a A Nu(de) Motivation really got me thinking about my commitment again.  I made a commitment to myself that I would treat my body with respect, that I would feed it fuel not crap and that I would work on my personal issues that keep weight on.  I have kind of abandoned that since school got back into full swing.  I think it's really important especially heading into the Christmas season to be cautious of stepping off the path. I am really going to have to focus and keep my goal at the front of my mind.  It is so easy to forget that not having that treat laid out in front of you is not going to kill you.  I find myself thinking lately, this is not the last time you will ever see (insert food), have just a little and move on.  My friends who are trim and fit do this with ease.  They don't deprive, they just eat reasonable portions of their favourite indulgences.  That's is what I will try to do as we head into the season of treats.  I will indulge in reasonable portions.  No need to eat 5 cookies when 1 will do.  It's a great concept.  Let's see if I can put it into practice. 

Well my husband and I are going to bask in a gloriously relaxed day.  Maybe read a book, watch a movie.

Enjoy the day!

  1. Good to see you're back on track! And yes, all these holiday treats may seem frightening at times... luckily, I am the one responsible for food in our household, so I decide what is cooked/baked, and I do the major part of the groceries as well. Oh, and if you want to... I will post a great apple cake recipe over at my witch blog, with less than 200kcal per piece, and it tastes delicious! (Just tried it this morning.)
