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!
