I nearly forgot to post today!
This morning I was tempted to weigh myself. I feel like I have lost weight, and my clothes seem to fit a tiny bit better, but I resisted the urge to get on the scale. Why? Because my focus is health, and weight loss will be a hopeful benefit--not the goal. I worried that if the scale did not reflect a loss of pounds, then I might get discouraged. I decided to not weigh myself until my wardrobe fits noticeably different. At least by then, I will have measurable change even if my weight remains the same.
I felt happy with myself during supper tonight when I reached a point where I was politely full and stopped eating. I wanted to finish my plate of food, but restrained myself, and rejoiced the I could recognize hunger before eating as well recognize when my body was no longer hungry.
