What's Bugging Me

One by One

One Day at a Time..... that's how you should take life. You can't change yesterday. Worrying about tomorrow won't help. You can only live for today, making the best choices you can.

That reasoning is very important in a weight loss journey. You can't take back the cookies, or candy bar that you already ate. You can't swear off bad foods for tomorrows to come. You can only look at the options before you at any given meal, and choose. Sometimes you will choose wisely, and sometimes not. But, it IS always a choice.

For the past few weeks, I have not always chosen wisely. Therefore, my losses have not been more than a pound a week. But, still, it's one pound less than I was before. One pound closer to my goal.

Weight lost this week: 1 pound
Total weight loss: 35.2 pounds
Pounds to go until I'm losing "new" weight: 4.8


  • Congratulations on the progress you are making. You are so right about just being in the present moment. The more connected you are with now, the more you will be able to feel your body and what an amazing instrument it is and it will tell you what it does and doesn't need. So many times we get unconscious with our eating...and everything else!
    Always be compassionate with yourself. It's cultivating a way of being, yes? So much more important than the numbers from week to week.
