Day Three Hundred Seventy-Five…

This post was from yesterday… 

Tomorrow is weigh-in day and I am reflecting on my week. I have taken action to keep going, even though it’s been difficult for me lately. I went to spin two times, I packed my lunch and breakfast, I tracked everything, I weighed and measured everything, I practiced mindful eating (especially when I waited too long to eat) so I didn’t just wolf down my food I tried to really show my appreciation for having food to eat. I helped a friend who was struggling by going through a hard time on her weight loss journey (I went through the three steps for taking a strategic stance for weight loss and they worked Day 374)!

So… if my results do not show up in numbers this week how will I feel?  I have decided this stall before goal is like a test. How much do I want to get to goal? I really want to get there, as much as I have since the beginning. Once in a while, I will also really want to eat two scoops of gelato,  I can have both – the gelato and goal I just have to understand my choices at the moment. There will be times when health issues may interfere with weight loss, that’s life. There will be weeks like I had this one that will be extraordinarily stressful, that’s life too. This is not easy, and that’s why a lot of people give up.

I’m not going to give up, and maybe I’m thinking about goal as a destination when it’s really the path. In some ways, I’m already there because my goal was to change my lifestyle I’ve definitely done that I live my life completely differently when it comes to food.  Even though I (really really) want to see a particular number on the scale, the number itself is really secondary. I’ll let you know.

 

Day Three Hundred Sixty-Seven…

It was a challenging week. The day before weigh-in is here again and I am dedicating myself to the plan. I am afraid my efforts won’t match my result in numbers because, although, there is so much within my control, I don’t control everything!

So instead of focusing on these last 3 pounds to goal. I’m going to celebrate that I have radically changed my life for the better. By doing the work, and making the choices I’ve made I am doing something that remains elusive for many people.

If you are on this journey, keep at it. Sometimes you’ve got to keep your head down and keep working whatever program (I do love Weight Watchers) and stay positive inside. Be your own light and change your life.
