Success Stories

Keeping the Faith
(Sabrina - hicks613)

For everyone who encouraged me to stick to the plan and let the scale not monopolize my thoughts...I thank you. It's day 12 and I'm proud of myself. Since starting CAD, the scale was increasing and I confess had me worried. Well, I reread the section in Lifespan book that says, Don't focus on the weight, but keep on the program. To my surprise, I had faith that this program was indeed working for me, so I jotted my weight down and refused to fall into that negative mental state about my weight. Yesterday, I got on and I thought something was wrong, the scale said 243.5 down from 247.5. I wrote the number down and immediately got me a 32oz glass of water! I didn't want to jump for joy, but I confess I went to work with a HUGE smile on my face. A family dietician told me that what you eat TODAY may not show up on the scale as a loss or gain until several days later...so my little testimony today simply means.....keep the faith...you're doing something wonderful for yourself.

BTW---this morning the scale went down to 242.5. Now I know water, and other things can effect loss/gain, so I'm focusing on the average and rejoicing that for once in my life I'm not a slave to Ocean Spray cranberry apple juice, Dove bars, Doritos (all varieties), Big Red chewing gum, fettucini alfredo, ramen noodles, Snickers, Hostess Apple Pies and Mountain Dew. I haven't once thought of them since 6/30 and that my friends...is a reason for me to be overjoyed today that I'm keeping the faith.

p.s. For once in a long time, I'm proud of myself.
