Life Off the Scale



Ok, so this is my first entry in my first blog ever...

I am just starting my 5th week of Jenny Craig and am realizing that it is not as easy for me as I seemed to think it would be. (Big surpise, right?) I went to a buffet, yes, a buffet, for mother's day. I ate too much, of course. Now I am feeling pretty stupid, especially after getting great advice from you all. I did have a plan going in, though, and I pretty much stuck to it. I ate very small amounts of my favorites and ended with a cup of broth type soup, no dessert. Although I ate more than I needed, I ate a lot less than I used to eat. Wow, I almost just typed usually instead of used to. This food battle isn't just a battle of my tastebuds and bad eating habits, it is a major battle with the understanding I have about food in my head.

There was a time in my life when I lived to eat. I obsessed about each meal before it "graced" my plate. Lately, that has changed. I have changed. I want the old slender me back. Less pain, less fatigue. I want to be a good example to my son and maybe even some of my heavier friends who are also struggling with their weight. I really want to succeed and I believe I can. But I will definitely need a lot of help along the way, because I don't have a lot of will power yet. I have to admit my gain of one pound and my lunch today has shaken my belief in myself to make it, a bit, but I am NOT giving up! I am chosing to believe that it is just a speed bump on the journey of learning how to live off the scale.


P.S. I worked out 4 times this week, a record for me! That is something I am really proud of, despite my other downfalls this week in the eating department.

Sounds great to me that you went to a buffet and only gained one pound. If is very easy for me to gain 2-3 pounds if I go to a buffet. So good job. My only thought besides increased exercise is to increase water. Water can sometimes help that pound come off more quickly. Good luck - you can do it!

Hi Leigg, Sorry to took so long to get back to you! I do drink a ton of water, but that is always a good thing to remember. Thanks for your encouragement!
