Weight Loss and Cheating
At our last meeting we discussed the "Weigh-In" and how we react to the number on the scale. I'm not going to review the meeting here, but rather focus on one aspect: when you have a weight LOSS:
Many members want to go and CELEBRATE a loss on the scale. How do they do that? Some folks like to take the rest of the day "off" from their weight loss efforts- and eat something outrageous, since they have a whole week till the next officialweigh-in.
One member who lost 5 pounds last week had planned to do just that! She was mentally planning her trip to the bakery to "celebrate" until she heard our Goldilocks and the 3 Weigh-Ins story. (Goldilocks celebrated her big weight loss by eating the "whole cake, including the roses!")
Every day and every bite adds up. It all counts. The over-eating you do on your weigh-in day actually affects the whole week and the next weigh-in.
Who are you cheating? Not your DIET! You are cheating yourself. Put that on your plate and chew on it.
