Well, today was weigh in day and I told myself regardless of how much I gained I am taking the hit and moving on. I weighed the same when I returned from my trip and the day after was 1.5# less, and then it found me again and I am up 2.4#. On the bright side of it, I am still under 200 (198.6) and all in all, not too much damage was done . I am shaking it off, and moving forward. Its over, I'm forgiven, its done....
I have heard it in so many of the blogs lately how many of us are feeling stalled, discouraged, frustrated. I feel all of the above but when I sat at my WW meeting this morning, I saw a friend of mine from the hospital who joined in the fall and she is down 27# and looks amazing!! Our leader shared a quote that really hit home with me and I am gonna share it with you.
"When you KINDA do it, it KINDA works."
"When you REALLY do it, it REALLY works"
Simple but true. I have been KINDA working it lately and I need to step it up and REALLY do the program wholeheartedly. No more giving myself all the leash I have been giving myself. I find when I REALLY buckle down is when I REALLY see results. She talked about portion control and making 1 small change this week. I thought long and hard about what I think needs to be adjusted, and I think it is dinnertime. When I get home from work, I am famished and want to pick at everything in sight!! I have decided that tomorrow I am going to make a few different entrees for the week and measure them out into covered dishes and have them ready to go for when I get home. I also love to have a snack on the way home from work so I am going ot fill some snack baggies with something crunchy for the drive home so I wont be so ravenous. One of the members a few weeks back said she made a dip made with plain greek yogurt and she added some ranch seasoning and she has a very nice little veggie dip. I am definitely gonna try this and am gonna stock up on veggies for the week. I am NOT a huge fan of veggies so this has always been a hard area for me while trying ot lose weight. My sister said she is gonna make a veggie tray for herself and store it in her office fridge and snack on that mid afternoon instead of something carbohydrate-y.
Oh, and another member who lost 4.2# this week shared a really good thought too... She said
"So many things in my life are out of my control, but this is the one thing that I have control over." Very profound, don't you think?
So to all my sisters who are struggling, lets all shake it off, and push the restart button today!! WE CAN do this!!
Love & belief always...
