For those of you waiting anxiously for my weigh in results.... DOWN 1.2! Yeah! I have entered a new decade of weight (barely) but still, I'll take it. Of course that means I loose another flex point but at least it is worth it!
Today after WW, I went to Costco to grab some necessary items for the house and stumbled across some very cute jeans and khaki pants. I used to not stop and look at these items because at Costco they usually don't carry anything larger than a 16 much less the 18 or 20 that I needed. Well, today I bought 12's and the khakis are a little big!
Today, someone in the meeting mentioned that in most 12 step programs there is a step called HALT. He said that you have to watch yourself when you are Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired. So true. The point is, you will always have these situations but you have to have a plan. Before, if I was one of these things I would bake. Well, now if I wanted to bake it would require a trip to the store or I would have to bake some whole wheat muffins or something because I don't keep butter, white flower, or brownie mixes on hand at the house. I also know that I can go to the gym even when I don't feel like it and afterwards I will be glad I did rather than regretting something that I ate.
Whether you are on a weight journey or not.... What is something you do that makes you feel better when you are hungry, angry, lonely or tired?
We ended the meeting with a quote that I really liked, "If hunger is not the problem, then food won't fix it."
