I stepped on the scale for my month-end weigh in today.
I know, it's not the end of the month, but I was starting to have crazy thoughts about starving myself today to get a better number tomorrow.
Nuh-uh. Nope. Not gonna do it! I'm not letting those crazy thoughts win.
So instead I hopped on the scale today. And voila! One pound down!
I know. You're thinking..."one pound in the entire month, whoop-di-doo"?
But I am HAPPY about it!
Why you ask??
I am abstinent which means I do not eat the foods that make me crazy anymore (not in 13 years). However, I still do NOT naturally make good choices. I have to work at it.
So I have a food sponsor that I report my food to everyday. And that food sponsor has been a great guide to me in that it makes me look at my foodplan through someone else's eyes. She doesn't judge my foodplan or try to direct my eating. What she does is make me think about how my foods will look on paper KNOWING someone is actually looking at them. And for me, it WORKS!
So, the fact that this is the second month in a row that I have not GAINED WEIGHT, and that now, total, I have lost six pounds by doing nothing more than thinking about how my food looks on paper before I put it into my mouth...I am giddy!!
ONE POUND!! WOOHOOOOOO!!!
