No scale right now.

Thursday, January 30, 2014

My son destroyed my scale.

I still have no idea what my current weight is. I did however measure myself just to get an idea of what is going on. I was happy to see that even though I added a half inch to my waist and hips, I lost and inch each on my upper arms, calfs, and thighs.

I have still been walking 5 out of 7 days because my husbands car is still not fixed. I think that even though I stopped being careful, because I was still walking a lot that I may not have gained a lot back.

I will be gettting a new scale again soon, but for now I am happy with seeing that my walking is still making a difference after all.

    emoticon on keeping up with the walking and losing inches in your arms and legs. That is great.

    Sorry to hear about your scale! I need to get a reliable one, too, even though your son did not ruin mine. And sorry to hear about the car, too, because getting it fixed is usually a pricey deal, and doing without is a big inconvenience.
I am glad to hear you are making progress toward your goals, and enjoying it, too.
For the past few days, I have been doing this way of eating that isn't really a diet and has a weird name. It is called mindful eating. You can eat whatever you want, but you are encouraged to make healthful choices. When you eat, don't do anything else. Chew each bite 25 times. Put down your fork between bites. Pay attention to whether you are hungry or not. When you aren't, stop eating. Drink a glass of water if you think you are hungry to see if maybe you are just thirsty. That is basically it. I have stayed in my calorie range for the last 4 days without even trying. I enjoy food more, and need less of it to be satisfied.

Much success to you!

    I don't weigh myself - I go by the fit of my clothing. Measuring yourself is a great idea. You could have gained muscle so keep that in mind and muscle pushes the fat out It may not show for a few weeks.
When I get a super strong craving at night, I do one of 3 things. I chew gum, I do jumping jacks, or I go to bed and look forward to breakfast
Keep this in mind: when we do jumping jacks - 50 at a time, we are just not hungry afterwards - it shakes it up down there, at least for me.

But, on the other side - we are all human - we do deserve our cravings when we are trying really hard. So, don't be hard on yourself. Sometimes, you just earned it
