Ok so maybe this is a bit off from what the scales said this week but it shows about how I felt. Now i'm not one to just count on the scale alone, but dang after four weeks and I end the month at the same weight I began.....wait a minute here. What gives? Obviously not the fat portion of this journey. Now I won't tell ya what I did with those dang scales. I mean it wasn't very nice but it sure felt good at the moment.
You see the thing is i've been working really hard on this lifestyle change...ok maybe in public....in private i've been grabbing a bite here, a handful of nuts there, a bag of chips over here. You get the picture.
So what did I do after my little fit on the scales? I set myself up with a new plan. I got back to work, took a long hard look at myself...now that was tough....and I just got started fresh. You see what the scales show may not always be the work you've done but I have to be honest here most of the time they don't lie a lot. So if your grabbing a taste, lick, or bite and not recording it...I can almost guarantee it will show up on the scales. So for me this was a eye opening moment. Because you may get away from it once or even twice but it will catch up with you when you least expect it.
So im now day three of clean eating and being on track. I've written it down, planned it out, and yup it hasn't been easy. I've had moments where i've had to drink down a water or eat up something I didn't need. BUt i'm finding if I plan for a meal and keep to the schedule i'm ok. So for now maybe it won't be smart to veer off the written path. We all have an addiction or two in our closets mine is food. Not a shameful thing if I let it out in the open. but very harmful when I hide it even from myself by not writing it down.
So to a much better day on the scales this coming Sunday. and If not I know i've certainly given it all I could.
