Scale is finally moving

The scale is finally moving in the right direction.  My weight had been at a plateau for such a long time.  I would sometimes go up or down a bit but nothing consistent.

It is so aggravating to get stuck at a weight that is NOT the goal weight.  I consistently exercise and watch my calorie intake.  I was feeling cheated  on weigh-in day because I was working out and saying no to food indulgences.

In fact I had a bad couple of days at the beginning of the month when it came to food choices.  I suppose it was a pity party because I wasn't losing weight.  I took a couple of days to feel sorry for myself and then decided it was time to dig in my heels.  I went back to good food choices and watching my nighttime snacking. 

If I need/want a snack in the evening, I pick a vegetable or fruit.  I'm working on keeping apples, turnips, and other fresh food on hand for a snack.  During my pity party, I was turning to carbs for comfort and just making myself feel worse.  It is interesting how I thought I  was eating to comfort myself but only caused more damage through the guilt.  In one week I ate an enormous amount of caramel popcorn.  That was the turning point for getting back on the bandwagon.  Onwards to the goal!


  1. I totally understand where you are coming from with the comfort carbs. I've been eating way too many of those the last few weeks too. I'm glad you're back on track and moving in the right direction.

  2. Wonderful news! I'm so happy for you. Onwards and downwards - right?!

  3. I'm finally catching up with some blog reading. Good for you! It's so nice to get back on track. That's where I'm at right now too. Yay! :)

    p.s. Pinterest....yes that's so addicting. :)

  4. You must be so happy!!! Good for you getting back on track!

  5. Thanks ladies for the positive responses. I'm glad to be back in the groove :)
