After a reboot on May 16th I promised myself I was going to work my plan, without a scale until June 1st. This from a girl who normally would happily get on the scale 2-3x per day. It was hard for the first few days but then it was actually a bit of a relief to not worry about the scale.
So how did I do over those 16 days...
I tracked every calorie (went over my range twice, each time only by less than 300 calories.
I exercised every day - total time 1185 minutes or 19 hours and 45 minutes
I worked on positive thoughts and mentally rewarded myself for effort, not numbers on the scale
It felt good
So, I am glad I did it that way. It was a good way for me to reboot my mind, and my body. In fact, I like it so much I am going to do the same thing for the next 2 weeks...
It is still nice to see some movement on the scale though
So here is my weight and measurements as of today
Please note, these are my initial "reboot" measurements - I did not mentally feel up to measurements on May 16th so I only weighed in that day...
Weight 229.8 initially, now 223.8 6 lb. loss
Goals from now until June 15th:
1. Log all calories
2. Exercise every day, at least 45 minutes
3. Practice positivity
4. Log into spark and allow success of others to motivate me
5. Stay off scale
6. Think actively about ways to manage stress that don't involve food
7. Love and value myself where I am now
That's all for now
Amazingly, I think that is enough!
