Third Time's a Charm

Shocking - Third Time Around is Working!!!



It's one month.  My scale continues to move downward.  But I really try not to focus on the scale this time around.  I'm trying to focus on what's getting me through and helping me to move forward in my journey to be fit n fabulous.  


....I like how I wrote that down - that I don't focus on the scale.  WHO AM I KIDDING?  I'M ON A WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM, OF COURSE I CHECK THE SCALE.  So many people probably do that: write down BS to make it seem like they're really being a good girl.  Online/social media allows us to do that without accountability.  Actually, I look at the scale every morning and every night.  It's what makes me accountable and shows me what foods make me go up or down the scale.  So far, all's well and good and the scale moves down every week. I learned how to use the scale to monitor my food when I was on a pre-JC plan [Back in the day - on LA WL, if anyone remembers that program - when we would weigh in twice a week to check what foods moved the scale.] 


I also try focus as much as I can on understanding what works and doesn't this time around so I don't return to square 1 again.  I take all that I've learned in the past and apply the good things to what I'm doing now.  I've never had this focus before.  So many things seemed to be in the way, I said.  It's true - if we want to make it true.  We all can have something in the way.  I used excuses like kids, work, college, moving, husband's work stressors, my health.  I was so in control of the other items in my life.  I had an innate ability to juggle many things at once.  I was known for it - employers sought me out because of my ability to handle the stress.  But I could never get in control of weight.  It was my crutch and my comfort to escape by eating and watching tv.  It was also my comfort to eat at good restaurants or order take-out during a late work night.  After all, I deserved it.  And then I'd hate myself for not being able to stay in control.  Sound familiar?  I bet it is for most of us.


Funny, how that isn't what's going on for me today.  I actually want to eat healthy.  I enjoy discovering new ways to make veges to go with my JC food.  This time, it's actually fun!  I wish you could understand that, for me, enjoying eating and creating dishes is a very very big deal.  Being raised in a German household on "meat and potatoes," I had a love/hate relationship with vegetables and "healthy" food.  Today, I really don't know what clicked, but I don't have a hate relationship with food.  I actually am enjoying it! 


If this is you, what's getting you through it?
