Winding down October..

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

emoticon WoW!! Only one week left!!

I am down 4 lbs in October. No where near my goal. So, while sitting here trying to decide what to blog, I evaluated what has changed this month, beyond the numbers on the scale..

I have dramatically increased my daily water intake...plus! I have taken vitamins everyday...plus! I have been too busy lately, and have not been getting in my eating small portions of protein/carbs every 2-3 hrs, leaving me hungry, and therefore maybe eating too much or too late in the evening...negative..BUT... In this falter, I have learned the importance and effectiveness that it brings to my success in weight loss....plus!! I now have realized, that when I eat small amounts, often, I DO NOT feel as hungry, I keep my blood sugar stable which allows me to eat less, end up eating better, and as weird as this is, the more I eat, the more weight I lose...plus!!

So, before I go off the deep end, and feel bad about not having lost as much weight, I have decided to take the lesson I have learned and be sure I apply it in this final week of the month, and moving forward in my weight loss journey...

I mean, this is a journey right?? ..Examining what works for us, and what doesn't..what keeps us on the path..even our mental attitude - negative self-deprecating talk, or a positive attitude and learning from our mistakes... Success is a choice..

(I just think I wrote my Blog for today! hee hee)

Keep on keeping ON!! You're my Inspiration!!
