A lesson learned (I hope)

Saturday, August 03, 2013

So I have been doing pretty good this time around with SP, eating right (pretty consistently) and exercising (sometimes not so consistently). I have tried not to get too focused on the number on the scale and what I mean by this is not that I don't weigh myself everyday but that I take the ups and downs as they go. I have told myself unless I stay at a the number on the scale for 3 days that I have not really lost or gained the weight. SOOOO now this is my lesson- I did slip and allow myself to get completely OBSESSED with the number one week. I had set a goal weight that I want to reach by December 2013 and I was within 2 pounds of it-Yeah Me, so I thought. Well I was so strict about my eating and exercising (breaking rules #1 and #2) and then I became obsessed with the number on the scale (there goes rule #3) that I reach my goal #!!! Hahaha, the joke was on me....I binged for three days after that # was reached. Not because I was rewarding myself with food but because I had deprived myself and become obsessive. It took me days to have my body feel healthy again after all the food I ate and 2 weeks to get back to the target #. So I have learned my lesson (hopefully) to eat correctly and to exercise with out becoming obsessed with a number but in order to feel healthy!
