No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

I Said I Would Not Weigh In, But I Slipped And Fell Onto A Scale And...

Ok, no I didn't.  That's a lie.  I was at a clinic (I work in health care) and the scale was there and I am feeling so good and so curious and before I knew it I was taking off my shoes...and purse...and badge (because you know that weighs an ounce AT LEAST) and stepping on the scale.  On purpose. 

It was a reckless decision.  Weigh ins have been my un-doing more than once.  Either I am surprised I have not lost more (or anything! that's the worst) and get depressed, or I see I've lost a lot and panic and binge.  Makes no freakin sense, but there you are.  Compulsive eating is not about logic, yo'. 

But I knew it was dangerous and I did it anyway, which was foolish.  So far, so good, knock wood.  But annnnnyywaaayyy...

I am down 19 lbs.  This is June 19th; I started "again" June 1st.  19 lbs in 19 days.  And trust me when I tell you I have not limited my raw food.  I have had as much as I liked.  I have had walnuts and avocados and Lara bars and all kinds of stuff I wonder if I should limit, but don't.  I have not suffered or been hungry.  I have, occasionally, felt over-full. 

19 lbs. 

This raw thing is pretty awesome!

Raw, Raw, sis-boom-bah!!  Glad to hear from you, and I know that how you FEEL is so much more important than a number on a scale, and yet isn't it nice to see the results of your new choices. Blessings to you!

Just a follow up--I did not have any bad effects from weighing in. But I won't do it again.

I can certainly relate to what you wrote about panic when seeing how much I've lost and binge after that. That has happened to me every time I've been close to reaching my goal... like it's too much pressure or something. I hope it's different this time.

CONGRATS Heather :)  I also don't weigh myself - it seems to make me focus on weight and not on health. I know in my heart (and in the way my clothes fit me) that I am at a good weight for me when I eat well :)  You are doing AWESOME!!! xooxx
