Chocolate is good for you

Monday, June 30, 2014

emoticon After a lot of thought I put my scale away a couple weeks ago and went back to focusing on regular, structured good meals with fruit for breakfast, a light lunch and a good dinner with a piece of chocolate every once in awhile. Things have been so hectic that I haven't had time to exercise so I assumed that I must be maintaining..I finally got on the scale a couple days ago and I had lost 5 lbs..

emoticon Chocolate, lack of deprivation and consistent healthy meals are good for me.and that weighing scale -not as important as I thought!

Is anyone else going scale-less, at least day-to-day?

Have a great day spark friends! emoticon emoticon

    scale doesn't bother me and gives me motivation...they are just numbers that don't record my NSVs....I do weigh in once a week...was daily but once a week is a nice surprise of "what? nothing??" LOL

    You are definitely right. Chocolate is good for you. I'm still trying to figure out how to incorporate it in my diet though. I tend to eat all the chocolate I buy all at once, and unfortunately, that's definitely too much.

Right know I weigh myself almost daily. I need it to keep motivated. But I'm just at the beginning of changing my eating habits (again). I'm sure that once the routine sets in and I gain more confidence I will have to weigh myself less frequently.

    NO ... I weigh every day ... morning and evening. It keeps me honest. When I quit weighing and just estimate my calories ... I gain !!! So you have to know yourself and how you function best, We are different. My wife seldom weighs. She uses a smaller pair of pants for her scale. So do what works for you. BUT ... join the 5% Club. The link is at the end of my blog.
