The only exception to this was Monday when I came back to work and that was more of wanting to chew or something to alleviate the boredom. I chewed a lot of gum on Monday. Yesterday, I was busier at work and found myself back to not thinking about food. So far, so good - at least for me!
That weight is down 1.6 pounds from the last time I blogged about weigh in. Last Wednesday I had lost .6 (but wasn't posting, I just reported to my challenge thread) so this is another pound down in the the last week. Huh. The downward trend is one I'm liking and hope keeps up, thyroid willing.
I also suspect that I'm probably doing what Mr. Helen accuses me of all the time: being harder on myself than anyone else ever would be. I can't even begin to tell you how many times he and I have gotten into arguments on the way home from Muay Thai Boxing because I am thrashing myself for screwing up combinations or not being able to remember a weapon form or something along those lines. Too many expectations, especially the whole expecting perfection thing. I've let that sort of pressure stop me from participating in too many things in my life and it's definitely one of the things I have noticed (uh, maybe because he keeps pointing it out) and been working on this year.
Do you do anything nice for yourself? I mean something that is just for you and not related to your weight or as a reward? When I turned 40 I was given a large gift certificate to the salon where I get my hair done. I decided to not use it for hair but started getting a manicure every 2 weeks. The gift certificate ran out and I enjoyed it so much, I kept going. Ten years later I am still doing it. Every once in a while I throw a pedicure in there. It's just for me. I'm worth it.
