Only a pound?

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

I haven't weighed myself in a while but I'm pretty sure I still haven't lost any weight. That's ok because I'm loving my new* way of eating.

I eat exactly what I want without guilt. Today featured peanut butter and banana on toast, a clementine orange, toffee yoghurt, salsa baked chicken, sauteed vegetables, mashed potatoes, grapes, a chocolate truffle, a graham cracker with peanut butter, and rice noodles with butternut squash, spinach, pine nuts, and tomato sauce. It turns out that what I really want to eat is a lot more indulgent than the crap I was shovelling in before. And I feel totally in control.

Tangent over, back to weight loss... I visited the Science Museum last week and was reminded of exactly how big a pound of fat is.

So the next time you're feeling glum that you've only lost one pound this week, take a moment to consider how big of an accomplishment that actually is.

    Love that picture. Such a good reminder to turn around the 'just' a pound mentality.

  Thank you for the encouragement! I love this way of eating, too. It is good just to relax and enjoy. When it sinks in that you can have any food you desire, it takes away the pressure and the guilt. Thanks for your input!
