Ignore the scale ?

Do we ignore the scale when it delivers bad news. Sounds like shooting the messenger. There has always been conventional wisdom that we should weigh in once a week so we do not go on an emotional roller coaster. Today I can see the wisdom in that idea. Even though I was almost a saint the scale treated me like the devil. So I would suggest if we know that we have done well ( via our grades ) it is time to put the scale aside for a few days.

Holiday Success

Yesterday I had a holiday - with of course two really calorie laden meals. Yet through my eating habits aquired recently I controlled my eating ......and did what seems to be the most improtant thing. Stoped eating early in the day - 5 PM. Which was not a problem because I had eaten plenty before - there was no need to eat any more. So if I getthe chance to rearrange the rules according to priority that rule is moving higher on the list. Final result was over the holiday I lost 1.2 pounds !

According to Chris Guirrero we need to have big audacious goals in order to motivate ourselves. It should really be a list of them so if one starts to loose it's pulling power the rest will kick in. So here goes my first attempt:
1. To be so full of energy that I can all day long feel full of power
2. To have a body that I am proud to look at
3. To have a face so young looking without the beard
4. Clothes look very sharp
5. To blow out my clients minds when they see me 85 #'s thinner
6. To have a really tight body with a hint of muscles

Bouncing back !

Yes. Got to keep the fire burning ! Perhaps I should keep in mind how much better I feel when I am on track.

Oh no !!!!!!

What a blowout this weekend. Does not take too much of a detective to figure out what went wrong when I look at my grades C & F for Friday & Saturday. However I am back and ready to take on the challenge with renewed vigor. I hope that if I am really careful then I will drop some of the salt weight pickup from the weekend.

Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
Mahatma Gandhi

That will is demonstrated when we bounce back - like I did yesterday - losing 1.4 pounds after a gain in the previous day. I made the corrections - elimanted night eating and added exercise to get back on track. Lets keep strong today - weekend is a major league test that I will pass !

Ups and downs

I hate to admit it - but yesterday was an up ! Gained .8 pounds - probably due to late night eating - salty and an up tick in calories and less exercise. This was my first B since I started and I am determined to get an A today. So today the whole days food is already planned out. I am really trying to watch my overall carbs for the day because I think that has a direct correlation with success. However the biggest lesson from yesterday was that the after 8 eating rule should be enforced. In fact I will enforce it tonight and even try to reinforce it with EFT. Mistakes are learning experiences if we evaluate and correct them and that is what I want this to be a learning experience that teaches me how to lose even more.
