251.9 Good progress this week. Watching the “points” count paid off. Super tired today after springing forward but resisted urge to stop for drive-thru take-out bs food, didn’t make a pit stop at the gas station for a Big Grab of Fritos, didn’t turn off to go to DQ for a big ass vanilla cone, pull into 5 Guys for a little burger with a “small” fries, or pause for any of the other food “rewards” I have given myself in the past. Went home and had a boca burger (precooked and seasoned – smart of me!) on a toasted flat round and a chocolate Luna bar (nutritious alternative treat) and stayed on course. Woo hoo!
Got to keep in mind that food is fuel not a reward or a way to “pleasure” myself after a hard day. Relaxing is a reward. On track for another good week and that feels like a reward in itself. I have finally lost 20 lbs and it has taken a year and been a step forward step back kind of thing but that is okay as long as ultimately my cumulative motion is forward. Yay me!
