Iím half way to my 1 pound off goal this week already. I never lost weight this quick before. But then, I never exercised before, and I never ate within the range before. This time round I remember saying to myself ďIím going to go to weightwatchers and just do what they tell me toĒ and guess what Ė it works! Iíve been fooling myself all these years, oh a little bit extra between meals wonít hurt, I wonít bother to count that, Iím too tired to exercise, etc, etc, etc. If you do the right thing you get the right results it seems. And exercise isnít so bad. Actually itís quite a nice feeling just to be able to say Iíve done my 50 minutes today!
I will be buying some notepads tomorrow with 1cm squares on the pages so I can keep track of my spark streaks on paper instead of on the computer. I am trying to make new habits and donít want all of this to fall by the wayside if I suddenly canít find computer time for some reason. As streaks become habits I can start different ones or up the goals on them.
Beck day 18
Well I canít physically tell if Iím full at meal times!... Although I no longer eat so much at meal times that I feel uncomfortable taking a walk after. And on the odd occasion when I have overeaten, I donít really like that feeling any moreÖ
Made to Crave 3rd of 3 free devotionals
Well this devotional was all about the number on the scale. It has such a horrendous effect on me sometimes. My brain cells go walkies when I see Iíve put on weightÖ even though I know Iíve eaten the right things all week, written down everything I ate as soon as I ate it, exercised properly, etc, etc. It can lead to a real binge if Iím not careful. Why does it have this effect on me? I donít know.
But the thing that struck me from this devotional were the questions ďDid I please God this week?Ē and ďDid I run to food instead of God this week?ĒÖ.Well did I?...
Is being slim my goal? Or is eating healthy, exercising properly, and getting to a healthy weight my goal?
Thatís the last of the 3 free devotional emails that you can get from www.madetocrave.org
but thatís ok cos my book is in the post. Iím looking forward to the other 57 days!
