It is the day before weigh in and I am taking some time to reflect. Thinking back I can say that I was on point – absolutely no shenanigans going on over here. If I were a gambler, I would bet that I was going down on the scale tomorrow. If I don’t, then maybe something else is going on. I am on some medications that I don’t normally take and they might be having an impact on my weight loss efforts. Either way, I feel good because I know I’m doing my best and I am reinforcing all the good habits I’ve learned since September 2017. Go me!
I’m thinking a lot about a WW friend, Bob, who reached out and shared a bit about his weight loss journey. He lifted me up this week and helped me back. He told me his story, how he has been losing “slow and steady”. How he keeps engaged by looking for new recipes. He posts those recipes as a way to give back to our community. He reminded me how much I have done and how I should be proud of what I’ve been able to do. He was a friend, when I needed a friend. I am very grateful.
If you read yesterday’s post, then you already know about my internal battle over the junior cup ice-cream, how would I handle the extra 7 SmartPoints it would cost to eat? Well, all my strategizing was for nothing because my husband said the line was too long at Carvel and he didn’t come home with any ice-cream after all.
