So today will start my 4th day back at counting calories and I love seeing the scale changing :o) Ive lost the 2 lbs Ive been yo-yoing with and even a few ozs just this last day. I usually dont keep track of the oz part. My scale does the 237.4 thing and I just take the whole number - no rounding up and down. The way I see it is, most dr offices dont have the digital plus ur in clothes when u weigh so not minding the ozs is a good thing for me :o) Well this morning I noticed there was no ozs! Yes, I weigh every morning. Im not overly obsessive abt it as in it makes up my mood for the day, but I need it as a guage to whether what I have been doing the past few days is working or not. I try to do it first thing in the morning before coffee in just bra and panties, but sometimes I dont remember til after half my coffee is gone. I dont bother then cuz I know the extra fluid will prob set it off. But anyways - yesterday I was 236.X and this morning exactly 236! I was surprised cuz I was twds the top of my calories range and had a higher than usual cal dinner last night. It was so good, and I balanced it with a side salad so I wasnt too worried abt it. This mornings weigh-in just confirmed what I did was ok :o)
So Ive noticed the last few days Ive been back at counting calories Ive been happier. Not sure if its cuz of the sense of control (yes, I have control issues!) or if its the feedback I get every evening. I love seeing that I made all the right choices and was in the range for the day! I dont really pre-plan during the day. I just THINK, make myself consciously aware, of what Im gonna make for the meal/snack and play the 'how do I satisfy my hunger/fuel my body for the least amt of calories?' game :o) Maybe it is cuz I see it as a game - I love math and am ALL abt numbers so yeah :o))))
Hope all is well with my Spark Friends!! Keep Sparkin and we can do this!!!
