Today, I weighed myself for the first time in months, and I discovered that I weigh three pounds less than I thought I did! :) While this makes me super happy and motivated, I realize that I have to continue to eat consciously and hold myself accountable for the food I put into my body. Having Sparkpeople open while I eat is wonderful, as I can track calories on the spot and ask myself whether I am consuming the correct number and ratio of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. I find that when I binge eat, I refuse to open up the nutrition tracker because I don't want to admit to myself that I got off track, but I've decided that I will hold myself accountable and forgive myself for making mistakes. It's important to see the numbers, though, as it is further motivation to stay on track.
The three pounds that I discovered I didn't have were a wonderful gift to wake up to this morning. I now have confidence that I will be able to lose another five before the end of summer, and another ten before the Winter Holidays. Hopefully around the holidays, I'll be at my goal weight. :)
