Day 813: I am a Positive Cheater

Saturday, March 23, 2013

So here I was, hiding the fact that I cheat. Feeling guilty about not being COMPLETELY honest in my posts.

Along comes the results of a dieting survey about the habits of those who successfully drop weight and keep it off. Well, one of the things on the list was my cheating! I post my weekly weigh-ins only where there is a loss to report. I have done this since joining SP and always felt a bit guilty about it. Like I wasn't owning up to my struggles.

Well, apparently there are a lot of people just like me. And it's a habit of those who effectively lose weight! By focusing on positive movement toward my goal, rather than any of the setbacks or normal fluctuations in life I am actually improving my chances of meeting my goal and keeping my new healthier status.

    I do the same too as I know myself and I like to see a change it keeps me motivated. I have a lot of sparkfriends who blog their totals each week.

    I don't see it as cheating we are all different and need to apply ourselves to whatever helps us keep going.
