So my scale this morning......... WOW.......... 245.2lbs. I am thrilled but cautious that this may not be true weight loss. I have been sick for the last week with a wicked head cold. I even took a few days off work mid week. That being said. I ate normally on Thursday and Friday I even had dessert after dinner so I am not sure what to make of this. I'll celebrate and work to keep it there.
Things have been going fairly well with me lately. I am finally listening to my body again. Twice in the last two weeks I've stopped eating a dessert mid way through and thought, "I really don't want this anymore" That to me is amazing success. Even more so then the number I saw this morning. Last Friday I was about to binge on candy when I decided to stop, after only 3 pieces, put the candy down and go get something with more nutritional value. I think things will start to fall into place again. I have been stagnant lately, and I guess that's ok. We don't constantly need to be losing, although it's nice, to be successful. Every pound I lose, that I keep off, is better for my body. I'm not chasing a specific end date here, just looking for overall health. For a while, I had forgotten that and was getting down on myself. This is not a diet, this is a lifestyle change. And for me anyways, if this lifestyle change is going to last a lifetime, it's going to be a slow change. All the small little changes add up in the end.
Have a great weekend!
