We are more then what we lose!

I love that fact that so many bloggers who blog about weightloss are realizing that they are so much more then what the scale and size says. I have fluctuated with this for many months. I think it is part of the premaintenance, maintenance faze that we all have to go through. It's like a natural transition.

The thing for me is though, too often I get very slack on my choices. *sigh* Now, last week I did induldge in pizza on Friday night, as well as a Java Chip Frap (no whip). My theory was I hadn't eaten a whole lot that week, due to illness, so I was going to at least eat what sounded good. At the moment LC foods just didn't sound good, and I knew that I could continue to go without eating anything otherwise. Again on Saturday I had splurged. Sunday, I ate a cookie. I was miserable. Luckily for me, I got back on track yesterday, and am already feeling 100% better.

I think my 86/14 approach will help avoid these food binges. I know. To the naked eye it doesn't look like a binge, but for me it was. IT WAS! It was so out of the normal, and it was almost like I coudln't get enough. I guess over time my stomach has continued to shrink. Which is a good thing It helps at times like I described above. I remember a time I could easily eat 10 to 12 cookies with milk. UGH!

I am focusing on creating time for better things. Not "better" as in I don't need to watch what I eat, but better in the sense that I don't need to stay solely focused ONLY on weightloss. My husband is working nights for the next 8 to 10 days, so, that leaves me time in the evenings to truly do as I wish. To create a new habit. To induldge in ME time! So, whatever will I do? Tonight, I plan on working on knitting this scarf I was working on in early Autumn but set down and never picked back up. Then either I will begin knitting or sewing a new project or two. Yes. I am ready to get my mind and hands busy on other things then constantly trying to "stay in the loop" with the weightloss community, reading recipes, ~ in other words spending too much time online.

Yes, I will be here to blog, and to support YOU in your journey. BUT.... I will not waste this time God has given me to sit here in this computer chair when I could be working on finding that proper balance!

Weight back down to 150 this morning! Yahoo! I don't know if I will take my "free" day this week or not. If I do it will be on Friday.

So, tell me. What are you doing to NOT keep your entire focus on weightloss?

From my scale to yours ~ I wish you a successful day!


  1. Another great post!

    I love how all of your posts seem like you're talking directly at ME! I've noticed that a lot of what I do is weight-loss based and I don't like that. I used to have a life before I starting losing weight, you know?

    Anyway, my I love to cook so that's gonna be my thing to get my mind of weight-loss. How is cooking going to do that? Well it's cooking some of my favorite dishes that I haven't had in over a year because it was deemed bad for me. I'm talking stuffed salmon, cakes, cookies, and more. OF course they'll be given away but still. It'll be nice to be 'normal' for a bit.

    Thanks for the reminder.

  2. Oh how funny. My last vlog was completely about this.

    I have been forced to have balance in this area the past week or so.

    Yay for 150! Good for you!
