Before, During and Beyond the Scale
My friend suggested that I post before and during pictures of me since I began my journey. The before picture was taken the week after I joined WW. The during picture is from October (I am 6 pounds lighter now). When I look back at pictures of me (the few that are out there) I can't believe the difference. And when I catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror or reflection now, I am shocked that it's actually me! I can't wait to see what I look like (and how I feel) when I get to my goal weight!
Almost a full week into the Beyond the Scale program and I'm really not finding it THAT different, other than I have 4 more daily points to play with. And those 4 points have been helpful this week as it has been a challenge. Like the classic Christmas song says, "It's the most wonderful time of the year"...cookies! candy! parties!! I keep reminding myself that my goal is within reach.
I am still struggling with eating out at restaurants that I don't know or consider "safe". When you go to a burger joint, you have a burger. Right? I ordered the kids size on lettuce (no bun) and topped it with sauteed mushrooms and red onions. But no cheese. I tried to turn a scary eating situation into something less scary.
I have to get through the next 2 weeks without losing control. Easier said then done.
