Yesterday went well with my fasting day. But I made the mistake of getting on the scale and it was not down. I am upset. I get so discouraged and mad at myself when that happens and that is why I was only going to weigh in once a week. I need to remember that. I don't want to make today a fasting day because the social worker and I went to the shops in our neighborhood and got donations for an event at our building. Starbucks donated coffee and pastries and Chipotle donated cooked beef. The social worker is making that in to some thing and we are having that for lunch today. The coffee and pastries will be breakfast. Now the question is since the scale is still up do I fast today or enjoy the treats?

    I'm also very emotional about my weight so also try to weigh in as little as possible, minimum once a week.

    Kathryn you look so good and have done so great losing weight in the past I believe you have some wiggle room unless you are absolutely determined to lose the remainder pounds to reach your goal weight by a certain date. I have not weighed myself this week, but I would be really surprised by Saturday to find that I have lost weight this week by just being aware of my body. Am I disappointed yes, but I am not mad at myself. However, if I have gained weight Saturday I will get out my goals and motivation notebook, review the things that I did wrong to gain weight and start over - one step at a time.

    You worked hard with your social worker to get the donations so will you feel deprived not to join in the festivities and sabotage yourself later? Tough decision. emoticon

    Was it something in the air? I had eaten fairly well all week, and that darn scale didn't budge a bit.

    As the book on fasting says, enjoy when there are special ocassions and after get back on track with fasting. emoticon

    Don't get discouraged and if you keep at it, it will go down. Focus on the great things you are doing for others!

    I say do what you feel and let it go. Today is a new day with new possibilities.
