Down to 203

Thursday, June 07, 2012

I went on the scale this morning and it read 203. I have been exercising and controlling my eating and this is the result. It is slow moving but each .5 is a reinforcing in my head that I will never gain all of that weight again.

I am really trying to stay focused, not on the scale but on the journey. On choosing the next right action. If I bring in my luch from home, eat it. If I make dinner for the week, eat it and don't be so tired that I buy rather than heat it up. To exercise when I have energy, but don't punish myself when I don't because disappointment leads to binges for me.

I feel very pleased. January 2011 I was 230. My highest was 240 in December. In April 2012, I was 212 at the MDs office and I have been hovering at that level for MONTHS. I finally broke a plateau. When I reach the hundreds, I am going to reach into my GOAL JAR and buy myself something. I hope it's the a new phone, but who knows..

Have a good one!

    I agree with them!! Weight loss is difficult but making up you mind to change your life completely and adapt a new lifestyle is the real challenge. You are doing great and I love your "never go back there" attitude!
