Finding Myself Friday, January 22nd

This course to find myself is definitely not a direct route, but it continues to move much like my weight loss journey.  I had a slight gain last night (0.8) making my current weight 199.8, but I know I did not do well with my water and all last weekend.  I’m not going to let it shake my resolve.  I know this journey is a process.  To that end, I was watching one of the videos on YouTube from Mind Over Munch talking about “Having a Healthy Relationship with Food”.   This spoke volumes to me and I realized that even when I am not at my goal weight that my habits have truly changed.  I won’t say that I never reward myself with food, but I am trying to do better about that.  I try to portion foods out or have smaller portions rather than tell myself I can’t have something.  I don’t know about you, but if I tell myself that I can’t have something, that seems to be all I want.  I don’t want to live in a world where certain foods are “off-limits” because that can stress me out.  Despite not being at my goal weight, I can definitely look back and see changes have been made.  That leads me to believe that I can make it to my goal weight because I am making lifestyle changes.  What has changed for you since you started this journey?


I know that there will be ups and downs (yes, that may include weight) in this journey, but it is definitely worth it.  I am worth it.  I have gone down the road of losing weight because I haven't eaten or eating and then taking a laxative.  I am a work in progress.

Have a happy Friday and fantastic weekend!
