up up and away.....(but the numbers are staying down)!!

Friday, August 09, 2019

I could hold out no longer. This morning I got on the scale and happy to say, i wasnt disappointed.
I had a number in mind that I was just praying I was under, but it turns out I was 6 full lbs lower than I had expected.
I have lost 7 lbs since my last weigh in, which I think was about 2 weeks ago.
I am bragging on myself and not even ashamed of it.
I worked really hard this week. I have stuck out a hard workout plan and walked every day that I could.
Low carb has been my friend.
Now, here is the next hurdle....Whenever I have a good weigh in, I tend to treat myself, unintentionally....I overindulge.
But I am going to be mindful and watchful and stay on the same plan I have followed this whole month......
No rewards
No treats.
Beach vacation in 3 weeks from today, I am not working hard ONLY because of that, but that is a goal to keep working toward.....
only 5 lbs to vacation weight goal.....

    The idea of treat days or cheat days or rewarding myself with food does not support my efforts. It doesn't mean that I deprive myself. However, if it hits my lips it is tracked. And, when I was in weight loss mode, I preplanned, pre-tracked and stuck to the plan.

    We each need to find what supports us best. Keep up the good work. emoticon

    Interesting ... wanting to loose weight, achieving it, and rewarding yourself with doing something that will gain weight, or at least slow weight loss to probably nothingl for a day or two. Isn't that sabotage?

    How about a non-food "treat"?

    Oh yes, ... CONGRATULATIONS on your success!
