In the meeting, we talked about celebrating our success. The leader said something that I thought was great. She said that we don't need to celebrate every weight loss, we can all do that. She then went onto say that we should celebrate our behavior changes and our change of attitude. I am still working on the attitude, but I have made some behavior changes already.
Behavior changes: No longer putting margarine on the veggies.
Measure the margarine I use on bagels, toast etc.
Switch to whole wheat brads and pastas
eat a larger portion of vegetables
Trying new recipes
I didn't think about those things as successes, but they are. They are the changes that make the weight loss stick and teach our families good healthy eating. The thing that amazes me most is how good things taste. who knew?
My scale +2.0 (I don't like my scale anymore)
WW scale: 0.8 loss
Total Loss: 5.0 (my scale)
4.4 (theirs--their is probably the right one really, the scales are calibrated regularly.)
