Holding Steady at WeightWatchers
By now I'm used to this repeating process of losing one week and plateauing the next, but I was really hoping to break through the 30.0 lb barrier today simply from a psychological perspective.
For me, the mental part of weight loss seems to be much tougher than the physical aspect - maybe that's where the idea of a "fat head" came from [see photo insert]. I wonder if that's true for anyone else? I find that there has to be a conscious choice on my part to want to make the right decisions on a consistent basis regarding the food I eat and the corresponding level of activity.
However, I’m finding that observation goes far beyond food.
It's hard to ignore the parallel that the weight loss process has with life in general. The idea of “mindful eating” is not that far of a stretch from “mindful living” and striving to make the best life decisions possible on a regular basis. The learning continues and so will my progress.
By the way, for those who read last week’s WW post – Leslie was at today’s meeting and was down a pound. Now that’s a bounce-back inspiration!
That’ll do it for now. As always, I hope that there’s less of me to write about next week!
