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