Life is cruising right along. I had a great weekend and Monday was plesantly busy at work. I weighed in last night and to my utter surprise I had lost another 3.5 lbs. Bringing the grand total to 55.1 lbs. I really couldn't believe it! The people in my little weight loss group were really supportive and excited for me.
Again, I am starting to feel gulity. Why do I feel that way? Hell, who knows?? Why would I worry or feel guilty that it's fun and easy to loose weight.......as I write this I am laughing at myself.
I do put in the time, thought and the effort it takes. At the very least, I pay attention to WHAT and WHY I am eating. I walk 40-60 mins a day. EVERYDAY. I eat good for me foods. I have found the best little treat. Tootsie Rolls. The little kind. I have been eating them to get a chewy and sweet fix. I think you can have like 6 midgets ( that's what they call them ) for 3 pts. Also, I eat alot of saltines. For some reason I pretend they are chips. You can have a bunch of them for very little pts. I haven't been counting anything, really. No calories, nothing. Again, just trying to eating good for me foods. And, lots of water. I love water! Basically, I have tried to plan for success. I am not trying to lie to myself, I know that I still USE food. I just try to minimize the damage. Drinking lots of water and filling up on low cal stuff.
Weigh ins don't seem to bother me anymore. I think it's because I am trusting myself more. I have stuck with it long enough this time to realize that the scales don't mean everything. That I am in no big hurry with this. I told myself that this time I am not doing anything that I can't do long term. Watching what I eat, pausing to think about why I am eating, and walking everyday. I can do those things.
Keep the mood and the food.....do your best! Really that's all you can do!
