I skipped my meeting today, but I did go and weigh in- it keeps me honest. I thought I was going to do okay- and I did! I didn't even weigh in on my favorite scale- and I still lost. I'm not really sure why I'm attaching so much stigma to a certain scale at the WW center... but I do. Maybe I shouldn't, since it turns out I still lost weight this week.
I had a great sit down with one of my best friends last night, and I told her my progress so far this time- 14 lbs lost since January- she was stoked for me. However, I do still find it embarassing when people ask if I've lost weight to tell them yes, I have; but know in the back of my mind that I told them this same thing two years ago. I told my friend how I felt about that- she said that she's noticed a big change in how and what I eat- and the fact that I'm cooking more has shown her a true change in my attitude towards food. That is true- I never feel like I'm on a diet, because I'm NOT on one. Yes, I'm losing weight, but that's because of the life changes I'm making.
I'm eating well, I never feel deprived, and I don't have an urge to stuff my face with processed foods. All in all, I'm feeling great.
