Tonight I faced the scale once again... like I do every Tuesday night. I went to my WW meeting without any high hopes. Last week's weigh in really sent me for a psychological spin, I had a few moments where I placated those feelings with food. Not a lot, but more than I should of and not what I should of (like 3 Cadbury Thins at 1:30am on Sunday!). I did keep eating properly, and kept moving (except when I was on my butt stitching).
I started out this morning with a better outlook on my weight loss journey, and what a journey its been! I made myself a healthy and filling breakfast, and lunch. I did something different this morning, I pulled out of my jewelry box an old ring I had bought years ago (I'm not a big ring wearer) and put it on. I have taken a page out of my meeting leader's book, to use a ring as an anchor. This is something you use to remind yourself what you're doing, why you're doing it, also to help you stop some behaviours. Lately I find my hand dipping into the candy dishes too much, or if I have a treat, I have two. Also "just having one" when something is offered. I decided to use my ring to anchor me from the little extra licks, tastes and bites I have during a week. So hopefully each time I reach out my right hand to take something to eat I'll see/feel my ring and change my mind. It worked very well today.
I've also decided I will get to my goal weight when I get there. I'm going to eat well, move often, and attend my meetings!
So what did all this mean at the scale tonight? Well I lost 1.5lbs! Yay!!! I am now 8lbs from goal.
