Success despite imperfection

Saturday, January 05, 2013

emoticon emoticon emoticon .6 loss recorded today for this last week despite not eating within range perfectly all week, or exercising perfectly all week.

I did burn over 600 calories, and was mindful with my eating more days than most.

emoticonThere were several nights I was able to consciously stop myself from emotional overeating. It was quite challenging. What seemed to immediately work was turning to prayer and asking for help. Then I'd find myself doing housework and getting things done. I'm grateful at those moments I even had the notion to turn to prayer instead.

There were also a few afternoons where I was too busy to eat lunch at the usual time, and I felt hungry, and the hungry sensation felt like a power tool working within until I could get to my lunch.

I'm happy with this week, because it shows I'm going in the right direction. Yesterday I was celebrating a birthday with a friend, eating chocolate and drinking chai, and I ate a large dinner, but because I had more days of eating right than not, it worked out over time. I'm also ahead of the "projected loss line" on the weight loss recorder. Don't think that's ever happened!

    You have a very positive outlook and that is great. It's better to think like you do now than always starving and depriving yourself were you feel angry. It a real journey, hope you get there happy and healthy! emoticon
