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.
