I am so happy to be home. The house looks lovely now that it’s decorated for the holidays. Sadie, my constant companion, is nestled in next to me sleeping peacefully. This was the kind of day that would have been easy to say, “Forget this, I need to treat myself.” Meaning, a bag of chips, or some cookies, or a glass of wine, or… Any of these choices would have the potential to undermine my progress.
My point is, 101 days on the journey and I was able to avoid this entirely because I know what I really want – I want to get to goal. Knowing makes it easier to maintain my resolve. Asking myself these two questions, “What do I want? Why do I want that?” It’s the answers to those questions that are making the difference.
I am getting used to #Freestyle. So far, I have used 16sp and I have a Weekly Remaining balance of 43sp with “rollover points”. My supportive husband knew that I was spent after working and running errands after work and then working after work. See the pattern? work work work… bought pizza for him and the kids and for me…
I will probably use another 2sp for Dark Chocolate Jello (very yummy and not as sweet as some others) with mixed berries and a serving of Rediwhip. I’m already getting used to the new program. It’s not really that different than before. One thing I can say is that it’s influencing my choices. Like today, instead of having oatmeal for 3sp for breakfast, I had nonfat greek yogurt for 0sp instead. The thing is I can’t let the points get too distracting and I know that I’m the kind of person who needs variety. Anyway, I am curious to see how it will impact my results on my weigh-in day.
So that’s all for now. I hope you are in a good place wherever you are in your weight loss journey. Just know that you are not alone and your belief in yourself is mighty. Yes, you can do this.
