I only weigh myself one time a week. The scale can become an enemy if I allow it to entice me to step on more than that. This week I am excited to weigh in. I like to set small goals for myself and if I can reach my goal of losing 2 pounds this week, I will be at a total of 30 pounds lost!!! What an accomplishment! It hasn't even been hard. There are days that I am tired and don't feel like working out. I do it anyway. There are days that I feel like eating a bag of chocolate chip cookies (the greatest food ever invented) but I don't. I eat an apple or a banana or a cup of yogurt instead.
Something that has helped me is "free Sundays" I eat what I want on Sunday. I don't count my calories on Sunday. I am happy to say that even when I do this, my healthy habits override some very bad decisions. I find that when I treat myself to a higher calories meal or treat, I fill up quicker and still don't eat too much. I feel satisfied. This helps me get through the week at times. If I am really craving something, I tell myself that I just have to wait till Sunday and I can have the treat. Sometimes I am not even hungry for it by then.
So wish me luck, I have two more days till Free Sunday Weigh In day!!!
