I haven't been posting about losses or gains in my daily posting lately, instead choosing to update my ticker when I record a loss. I think this is helping me. Even though I do weigh myself every day, I'm not blogging about how the scale didn't move for 6 days even though I was nearly perfect with my eating. And somehow this is helping me. I think when I don't dwell on it every day then I am more likely to stay positive. Even though I haven't lost any particular day, I still see my ticker that says 10.5 lbs gone. It's a positive reinforcement. It has me looking at what I've done well so far.
I had to actually look at a calendar to figure out how long I've actually been doing well and it has been almost 3 weeks! (with the one slip up!)
Last night I went to my monthly Mom's Group at Panera and I was tempted to get a pastry. On a whim I asked the server if he knew how many calories was in a French Croissant: 310. So I said, well how bout that small carrot muffin? - 500!! And the cinnamon roll? Over 600! And the pecan roll? 730!!! I never imagined such small things would have so many calories. My choice? A fruit cup - 60 calories!
