Healthy Eating – end of week 4 Success!

I was so pleased when I hopped on the bathroom scale this morning.  I’ve lost another three pounds for the grand total of 10 lbs in four weeks!  I have to be honest thought, when I first got on the scale it showed 140.5 lbs.  I got off and moved the scale over on the floor about six inches and got on again.  Hurray!  140 lbs!  lol!  Well we do what we have to do.  I think of it as being honest because I don’t know if I’m actually 140.5 or 140.  Have you ever done that?  Moved the scale around to see if it would say something different?

This past week I finally included exercise.  I’m doing my Latin dancersize video in the comfort of my own home.  I got in two nights, that is pretty good for a start.  As for the water, I’m still having trouble getting the amount up to 8 glasses, but I’ll keep trying.

The first 10 lbs are always the easiest to get off, as I have said before, because I think the fat cells have not fully attached themselves to my body.  Now comes the really hard work.  Twenty lbs. to go.  I know from previous successes to expect a slower rate of shedding the lbs unless I really step up my exercise and water intake.

I only went off the healthy eating once this last week and that was for buttered popcorn.  I’m okay with that.  Even if I only lose five lbs in the next eight weeks, I won’t beat myself up over it.  I’m well on my “weigh” to living a healthier lifestyle.  Valentine’s is coming, Easter is coming, somehow I have to stay away from all the sweets that go along with those special days.  My husband will know better than to buy me chocolates for Valentine’s Day, but Easter could be a problem with his family wanting to do the big meals.  I might have to decline an invite because their home will be filled with chocolate Easter eggs and other candy.

There are always going to be temptations around and one slip up means I will be back to eating junk food.  I am like the alcoholic that takes that one beer, or the druggie that takes that one pill, it’s over.  I hope I can be stronger this time around because it will take me another year and possibly even two to get back on the healthy lifestyle.  Did you notice I am not saying “I’m on a diet?”  I am just on a new healthy eating lifestyle.

My intention was to post a new photo of myself today in the same clothes from four weeks ago.  The change for 10 lbs really isn’t that great from 150 – 140, so I have decided I will wait for another month to post a photo so real change will be noticeable (hopefully!)  I will exercise three times at least this week and I will increase my water intake.  Positive thinking!  I am going to do some self-hypnotizing this week, really sink the intentions into my brain.

May positive thinking make its way into your home this week and stay there!

I’m Frazzled Again.

    1. I’m not obese, but my dr. Even recommended I lose weight, it helps reduce acid reflux, and strain on the knees. 20 lbs left to go. I won’t be skinny by any means and I don’t want to be. I just want to be healthier.

  1. Way to go! And yeah throw that word “diet” right out the window! Another way to go! You wait! You will actually get to a place when you eat sugar you won’t feel good. Honest! The one exception to that is bittersweet chocolate (small amounts). 😘
