Progress? Sabotage?

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Well, today I received my first "You've lost weight!" after 11 days of tracking my food on SparkPeople. Any encouragement is nice....and I continue to be amazed at how much I used to eat when I wasn't even hungry. Somehow the responsibility of tracking my food keeps me from making stupid choices. But of course, then this evening my sweet, thoughtful next-door-neighbor drops off some homemade chocolate chip cookies. (Please see picture below - this is the cranberry one I left for my husband.) How could I resist?? I have to admit I had one, and it was SOOOO good! Thankfully, I'd had a good day and could afford the calories, but I'm learning that my body really doesn't need things like homemade chocolate chip cookies. Not sure what I should have done - thrown them out immediately? Saved both of them for my husband? (If you know me, you know I don't have that kind of willpower.) But I am resolved to let that compliment today fuel more progress. And hopefully my neighbor won't feel like baking again any time soon....

    It took something like 5 months before I got my first "you've lost weight" Good for you keep it up and it really does pay off.
