Don't Listen to Others - Listen to Your Body

There is no one that knows you better than you. You know what motivates you. You know what drives you. They say - dont get on the scale every day. Well, I am a visual person. I like to see what is going on and I will sometimes weigh myself every day. But I keep track of the numbers. I write them down so I can see it and it is a reminder of the baby steps I am taking. I get frustrated too when I see it go up .2 - but I have to remember weight will flucuate - even in babies, kids, elderly, everyone. Its ok. Its not defeat. What is hard to remember some days - (2 things) 1. Its a marathon not a sprint. You didnt gain the weight in 1 day. 2. Its ok to have a cheat meal. Not a cheat month. Slow and steady wins the race. Be the turtle.

Have a reason why you are wanting to lose weight, get healthy, get fit. Dont do it for someone else - you! Maybe you want to get into that one dress at Finals in July. Maybe you want to do something and you have to weigh x amount. For me - I want to get into a dress that belonged to my Mom at Finals for Ball. I also want to see if I can get back into bikini competitions. Reasons!

So my un-official update: I have lost 11lbs. No its not dropping off quickly - I dont want it to. When I want something sweet because I am stressed - I grab some grapes. They are sweet. I found Zero Sugar Chocolate Sauce and I put that on my banana ice cream. 0 points for all that!!! WIN!!!!!!

REMEMBER - your brain doesnt know the difference between hungry and thirsty. Drink 1/2 a glass of water and wait 10 minutes. Are you still hungry? No, good. Go binge something on Netflix or what ever you watch. Yes, ok, grab some fruit or a some cherry tomatoes - something quick and in your hand(ful) so you can go watch tv.
