Dazed and Amazed

Friday, March 01, 2013

I stood on my scale today with dazed eyes. I really didn't want to look because the last two days weren't my best: a little less exercise and a little more food.

When I did get the courage to look down I was amazed to see that I had lost 1 pound!

I think there are two things at work here. I am no longer on a "diet". I am making a lifestyle choice. So even when I can't follow my plan I can still use my nutrition tracker to make the best choices possible. That gives me a feeling of confidence and control. In the past I would get off track and use that as an excuse to stay off track. Now I move on to healthy choices at the very next meal.

Secondly, I feel so much better even though it has only been 3 weeks. The 8 pound loss has improved my blood sugar readings and the exercise makes me feel more energetic.

So when I am tempted I will remind myself how good I feel with just these few changes and how much better I will feel when I reach my goals.
