Face Up…

To weigh in or not to weigh in that was the big question. Today is meeting day and I did follow through on my plan to weigh in. Truth be told, this blog is a place for the truth, I went up on the scale. However, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be and knowing the number didn’t derail my focus or my confidence. All I have is a satisfying sense of control over my situation. I took back my power and that feels great.

My goal this week is to continue to face up to reality when it comes to food choices. Here is how I’m going to do it:

  1. Weigh and measure my food one meal at a time. Each time I’ll do my best to keep honest about serving sizes. If I mess up, I’ll start again. I’m looking for improvement not perfection.
  2. Eat when I’m hungry
  3. Limit sweets
  4. Enjoy activity
  5. Reflect and practice mediation throughout the week

I want to keep this list short yet generous. What I mean by that is I don’t want to try to do too much that I feel defeated. I want to give myself a lot of room for success so if one day things are too hard, I want to remember that I can always recover. This is my plan for the week.
