Small progress is progress

Well, I can say the bland food is doing something. 6 lbs in 3 days. Kind of scary frnkly. Loss like that doesn’t typically stay off. The last day of the Jumpstart, and I am really ready to eat regular food again. I am thankful that I haven’t lost an energy, and I am motivated to continue. Telling myself no is definitely that hardest part. OF course, saying no in general is a struggle for me. I sometimes feel like I have told myself no for so long, I would love to say yes more often. But, that’s just part of readjusting to the lifestyle. I can say yes tomorrow (within reason), and I am hoping to be able to continue losing as I work through this. I admit, normally by yesterday I would have quit. I would have given in and had whatever it was I was craving.
Now it’s time to look for other ways to reward myself. Four days of bland food and 6 lbs down deserves a reward, I just need to think of what it should be.
The stress is still in need of some serious management. I took yesterday off work to be with my son and his friends for Spring break. If only I could have brought myself to turn off the dumb phone. By 1 in the afternoon, all I could think about was deadlines and projects. Since I won’t have my angel tonight, I think I need to spend some time really prioritizing my projects and our schedule to get things fit better. Hopefully I will be able to find some things that can be delegated and be completed.
