Do not want my bust to be 140, just my weight.
A busy day yesterday, forgot to check back.
Will continue with my plan: before I choose what to eat, or before I put things into my mouth, I will repeat to myself: scale to read 140, scale to read 140.
Report 10:30 am -- I just cut butter up into half tablespoon pats and put in the refrigerator. Do not deprive yourself of something you love, but just limit it.

I love each fresh new morning. It just makes me feel so good.
Going to try my mental awareness plan today, again. I went over my calories yesterday, but that was okay, because I had a really special dinner. I did very well up to dinner time, and that is better than nothing!!!
So, I know I am going out for lunch, but it is with a skinny person who never eats much, and so that part will be easy.
The main thing is controlling dinner portions. I am having my mom for dinner and she eats hardly anything, so once more, today I should get under 2000 calories.
I will check back tonight and see.

I actually am a rather sloppy person. I do not coil up the hose after I use it. I leave the washcloth all crunched up instead of neatly squeezing it out and spreading it on the rack so it will dry. Awhile back, I decided to change these habits. It is all about slowing down. (I have a natural tendency to do everything fast. My mom and daughter do too) So, what I did was, when I was about to just leave a mess, I would say to myself, "re-training, re-training" sort of like the GPS says, "re-routing"
It still is an effort sometimes, not to go back to my old sloppy ways. I will catch myself regressing.
Okay, so I know it works, this mental awareness. My new plan is to say, "140 pounds"; that is what I WANT the scale to read. I am not setting a date for this. And I am thinking it would be better NOT TO WEIGH myself for awhile.
I will report back on how and IF this works.

I am not a happy camper right now. I feel like it is impossible to lose any weight. Maybe this is my natural weight, and I should just forget about it all.
It is really hard not to see any progress. However, if I look at my calorie intake, why should I be surprised???? Duh.....
Everyone is different, and a system that works for one person does not work for another. The important thing is to change habits, I know that, habits that cause a person to gain weight. In my case, snacking on little candies at odd times, and drinking up to 3 glasses of wine at dinner. Changing just these two habits may show a weight drop. But what if it doesn't? I would have deprived myself and have had no results. Hmmmm.... these are just random thoughts.......

Another grey, cold, wet morning, and I am very unmotivated. I put on my Coach Nicole strength workout after doing the trivia quiz and being reminded about how important strength training is. But I quit after 3 minutes.
My weight was stable for two years and I joined Spark to lose ten pounds, and now, instead, I gained three pounds (on the cruise) and I just cannot get it off. It is seeming like cruise was not worth it, if this is the result.
I know for a fact I am eating in a more healthful way. I know that. But I am still discouraged that the 3 pounds will not come off.
