I feel so proud of myself. I have been able lately to fight through stress cravings or atleast track the extra food I consume mindlessly when I do cave. I have been eating within my range 6 days a week for 2 months now!
Once a week I still take a non-track day and allow myself indulgences. I challenge myself on these days to listen to my body. I find I have come to hate the over-full feeling I used to almost need in order to relieve my stress. While I do eat higher calorie foods, I stop eating when I'm full.
I know I might lose weight faster without this off day, but I also feel like it helps me get through my temptations.
I have lost a pound a week for 16 weeks! Occasionally I lose 2 or nothing but it has averaged out to 16 lbs in 16 weeks. I am so happy with this progress!
I had a lot of trouble this week staying motivated, but then I think about my real motivation - a healthy pregnancy and becoming a healthy mom. There is nothing worth giving that dream away. I would be devastated if my health or weight prevented my husband and I from conceiving or if my health put my future baby in jeopardy.
I am proud of what I have done and hope to continue with this success!
