A Clue Perhaps?

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

It would seem that there are many of my friends who are also feeling a bit hungrier than usual lately so I certainly am in good company. If it's the changing of the clocks or the season, hopefully we'll get past this soon.

This morning as I stepped on the scale, I had the glimmer of another clue to my hunger.

It appears that I may be edging closer to another loss on the scale.

I weigh daily...I only change my wt. here when there has been a consistent change either down or...up. Fluctuations occur frequently and don't mean much in the grand scheme.

Today, my scale registered another pound lost....this is the first time I'm seeing this so as I said, it isn't being logged in but it probably is an indicator that sometime in the next week or so, I will be able to do so.

Now one thing I have noticed, is that my body has this way of trying to hang on to it's status quo. It seems often, that I will follow a loss with a compensatory eating....sometimes that could be my mind doing one of those games that says...."Go ahead, have that..........you deserve it...you've lost weight." But I think it also may be that "setpoint" sort of thing too.

If indeed, this is what is going on, in part anyway, it provides a bit of a clue. This self knowledge just might give me the ammunition to fight the urge to eat more than I really should.

Ah.....POWER!! emoticon emoticon

    I like your thought process...and wouldn't be surprised if it's true too!

    Very interesting insight. I often find that after a decent loss (like last week) I either remain the same or gain.

    BTW, I made salmon cakes for lunch yesterday & that filled me up for hrs! Basically a whole can of salmon + egg . . . got me thinking about snacking vs larger meals . . .

    What an interesting thought! That human mind can be such trouble sometimes. I hope you lose that pound for good -- and as many more as you want -- without having to fight the brain too much.

    Such an encouraging clue it is! Interesting how the mind and body realign when there has been a shift in the status quo!

    Well that's a very interesting observation. You're such a great thinker.

    Interesting postulation...I will see what the scale says tomorrow. Wilbur the Wii said I was down yesterday, but he and my scale don't often agree (different times of the day, etc.) you are such a thinker!

    I hear you. I'm on the brink of being able to note a pound lost too. You may have nailed the problem Donna. As you expressed, now we have ammunition to fight-hopefully the will power too!
