Default nipping it in the bud

Since I separated from my husband and moved out in September, I've been holding steady at around 215. Right now, I'm happy with my body. (Me! Miss Eating Disorders! Happy with my imperfect body! ) However, I also realize that I could gain all 55 lbs. back in the blink of an eye if I'm not careful. So this morning when I got on the scale for my weekly weigh-in and saw that I'd gained a little over two pounds, I knew it was time to recommit.

This week, I'd like to lose that two pounds. I will commit to the following:
(a) No school cafeteria food, unless it's a salad.
(b) Eat a real dinner with what I've got at home.
(c) No junk food.

I'm glad I'm doing this with two extra pounds rather than waiting until I have five or ten extra pounds.

Jennelle on being proactive. I think that's a huge step in the right direction. Speaking from very recent experience, I know how easy it is to think you've gained weight so you avoid the scale. So good job in getting back on track so quickly.

And I'm sure those 2lbs will be off + some for you next weigh in.

That's it - it's all about "the catch". This IS the time to buckle down. Catching any lapse before it turns into a relapse - before it turns into a total co-llapse.

I think that you are wise in catching this at 2 pounds. It is so easy to regain. Way to go!

What a great way to put it... I think it's great that you caught yourself before you really had a chance to backslide. Good job!

Thanks for the reminder. I don't need to wait until I'm at the +10 pound mark or more before pulling it back together.

I'm back in the game.

So this morning's weigh-in was 216.6. I lost 1.4 lbs. Not the two I was shooting for, but I did a much better job this week of attempting to eat clean every day. (As long as you don't tell anyone about the Honey Bun and gas-station cappuchino I had while I was waiting for my bedding to wash at the laundromat last night! )
