I have gotten over the weighing obsession

Monday, May 02, 2011

I loved the article from the new Mind Over Body series, a 10-step program to ending emotional eating and creating a permanent healthy lifestyle...... I have gotten over the weighing obsession... I realized after a month into my new way of eating that I was no longer on a diet. I was on a healthy lifestyle journey.

No more than I weighed in all the time when I was eating out of control to see how much I was gaining, do I now keep checking the scale to see how much I am losing!

I feel so much better with my new lifestyle that is ever changing and it's only getting better, I am no longer doing this for weight loss.. weight loss is just a happy side affect, when I do not see the scale going down as fast as one might think it should I just smile and say to myself "you are doing so wonderful eating healthy foods" which is what my ultimate goal is!

Sparkle On,

    Good for you! What a great attitude! The scale is just one unit of measurement anyway! How do your clothes fit? How is your blood pressure? How are you triglycerides? How is your stamina with exercise?
    I try to "fuel" my body for optimal performance. Junk food is not optimal performance! emoticon
