Non-scale victory of the week!

I pushed this week and got more green showing in my step log on fitbit. Can't say that has been the case for quite some time. So I guess the victory this week is my returning to my old ways. Good ways.

What do you feel you could have done better this week?

I did have a cookie snack last night that I probably should have avoided. I need to work on resisting temptations.

Non-scale victory of the week!

I worked the local fall festival Saturday. I was there from 6 till 4. Our stand sold baked goods. I resisted eating them!

What do you feel you could have done better this week?

This week was up and down. I need to find a way to keep things more level.

What are your goals for the upcoming week?

This is hard! I have reached the point I can tell I've put on weight - it isn't just a number on the scale anymore. I am back to eating like I did when I was really losing. October is going to be my month!

Non-scale victory of the week!

After I got home from work tonight I changed clothes and pulled a bunch of weeds. I had to think about how much easier it is form me now vs before I started this journey.

What do you feel you could have done better this week?

I was much more in control this week. I don't have any ideas of things to improve upon.

Non-scale victory of the week!

No victories this week.

What do you feel you could have done better this week?

So much! We were on vacation this week and things totally derailed. I ate like I did when I was much more heavy and the scales show it.

What are your goals for the upcoming week?

I've got to remind myself that I can't eat whatever I want whenever I want. A weekly treat is fine. A daily treat, or more than one a day, isn't. Time to get back into game mode before I undo all the good I did!

Non-scale victory of the week!

So many times this week I was tempted to stuff my face, but didn't.

What are your goals for the upcoming week?

I have worried for many months about maintaining. It dawned on me this morning that I'm doing it. It might not always feel that way because of the up and down movement of 5 or so pounds, but that's really what it is. My goal this week is to remember that I am doing okay and not have my weight be a cause of additional stress.

Non-scale victory of the week!

I learned this week that in all likelihood my job will be eliminated early next year. I somehow resisted turning this info into an opportunity to eat away my fears and frustration. I ate appropriately and took extra steps instead!

Non-scale victory of the week!

I completed a 20 minute workout on the elliptical yesterday. It was one of those preprogrammed ones and at times it was hard. Normally I would have given in to the temptation to stop early, but I stuck it out!

What do you feel you could have done better this week?

This week felt better than the past several. I felt much more in control and didn't let the work stress carry over to my food choices.

What are your goals for the upcoming week?

Just two more days of work then a week of vacation! This is not a stay-cation so it will be more difficult to stay on track as far as food. We've formulated a plan. We just need to stick with it.
