Day 843- NSV's Are Important, No Matter How Small


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, March 24, 2014

Today, I walked into the kitchen at work to put my tuna and greek yogurt in the fridge. And what greeted me but a huge box of donuts.

I've faced this instance numerous times before, sometimes cutting one in half and enjoying it, and other times refusing it but thinking about it the rest of the day at work.

Well today, I strangely wasn't really interested. I've noticed that I'm beginning to crave better food more and more. This weekend when I visited JD, we split an order of onion rings, and I ended up throwing three away simply because they didn't taste that great to me. It could have been a bad batch, or it could be my body sending signals that all the healthy and nutritious food I've been eating is what I should stick to.

This morning I saw 183.2 on the scale, which is a full 5 pounds down since Tuesday, my first Weight Watchers weigh-in. Now, the meetings are Tuesday nights, so I'm not sure I'll see that at the end of the day tomorrow when I weigh in, might be a couple pounds heavier from the food and water I drink, but the point is, I'm moving in the right direction and eating great food.

It's just nice to realize that I won't be thinking about those donuts all day because I honestly don't really crave them right now.

I'll be sure to let you know how my weigh-in goes tomorrow evening.

Tonight, I've got Zumba taught by one of my best friends, and I can't wait!

Have a good Monday everyone!

    That's great--I had that office break room situation today

And unfortunately, today was a day I caved and ate too many sweets

Oh well, tomorrow's a new day!

Good job to you for helping your body to crave healthy foods

    I know exactly what you mean about the body's reaction to those old unhealthy, fattening trigger foods. The really do lose their appeal after awhile.

    NSV's are as important and any scale victory. Usually we face the scale weekly but temptations come at us every day in some form or another. Congrats on a great NSV.

    Great job! I too have noticed that I do not crave the junk food, although unlike you I had a cookie and a small muffin that was in the break room for us to enjoy. But I will not let it bother me. I will prevail! Keep up the great work! You are such an inspiration

    I always wished there was a seperate tracker for "stuff I chose NOT to eat"
Would be interesting to see a total at the end of the day, what you saved yourself from..

  Isn't it great to actually NOT crave junk food? I feel that way about French fries these days, and it makes me so happy.

    Isn't it great when you can look at a donut and NOT want it?

WTG not eating the onion ring just because it was there. That is fantastic!
