Week 4 - HYC Check In

Good morning, challengers! My usual weigh in day is Thursday, but I'm mixing it up - from now on I'll report my weight on Tuesdays. Oh, so exciting.

After 4 days, I'm down to 232 even. But the real event of the week was that I got my choppers back! I found some creative things to eat within my calorie guidelines, so it is getting easier to be satisfied. I will post some of my new faves soon.

Enough with the gloomy girl of Sunday. This week I'm giving myself some homework. To work out how to feel content with my choices. Things I'm thinking about - eating well is not a deprivation it is a tool to better living. Duh. Also I think I'll make a motivational list. All things I have to look forward to when I am no longer so overweight. As positive as I am I have a tendency to be a "Yeah that's great, but here's what isn't ..." kind of person who can find a way to focus on what she doesn't have. I'll be working on that too. I mean sheesh, I just did that love me list, you'd think it would stick for a while. I hope everyone has a great week!

The motivational list is a great idea. Are you going to share it with us when you make it? My fingers are crossed.

You're doing so well! Congrats on your loss!

I love the idea of a motivational list. I may look into that...

And don't beat yourself up about beating yourself up. It's a habit that has to be broken, just like my mindless eating and tendency to lay on the couch.

You're still here, right? You'll get it!!

Congrats on a great week! The motivational list is a fantastic idea! I did a similar 'reasons why' list when I first started this journey, and so many of them are already coming true!
Here's hoping you have a fantastic week ahead!
