LilySlim - Weight loss

No weigh Jose'!


I am on day 10 of the no weigh plan as set forth by my dear husband. I must say, it's a bit freeing. I feel good. My jeans are looser, even my tight ones and over the weekend I wore a dress to a wedding that I haven't been able to wear in 4 years. That felt good too. I tried on a pair of jeans in my closet, that I've been saving forever. I got in them for one day about 4 years ago. They fit, a little snug, but they fit. So, all in all, I feel like I'm losing. I know my body is changing and people are really starting to comment on my weight loss. I feel like my eating is okay, some days I'm much hungrier than other days. I find that I tend to be hungrier at work than I am at home. I guess because I'm more idle at work. I really need to start exercising more and I have been completely lax on that . I will do better. So, I hope that the scale is in line with the way I feel, but if it's not, does it negate the way I feel now? I think I really do need to rely more on my body to gauge my success, it can't all be about the number on the scale, although, that's something I want badly. Perhaps this experiment has it's purpose. I think it might. I hope that I can carry this attitude with me after I get scale "privelages" again.




I hope everyone has a great start to your week. My son's football team won their first playoff game, very exciting. Big hugs!

Congrats to your son's team on their playoff win!

Good job avoiding the scale. I think we all give it way too much power. Not sure I'm ready to give it up, but I'm paying attention to your experience!

Youa re a better soul than I am and I am just so proud of you avoiding the scale. I just don't know how to get out of that mindset. Maybe once I drop another 10 I will make the pledge to follow in your footsteps!

Theresa, I am so proud of you. I don't know if I could go without my scale like you are. How much longer do you have to wait? When I was in Phoenix for 2 weeks, I did not have a scale. I almost went out and bought one just to keep at my daughter's house. She doesn't want one there, and guess what......she is thin! I got home and jumped on the scale and saw that I had lost 2 lbs! I am on the scale morning and night at my house. It sounds pretty ridiculous, doesn't it? Great job so far!

Proud of you!

I am the polar opposite. I can not eat at work easily. It's when I get home that the hunger alerts start going off and then I want to eat everything I can get my hands on.

Glad your no weigh plan is making you feel a change.

Good for you not weighing and listening to the hubster! I too am a scale addict! Glad you are seeing the results in your clothes and not finding the need to weigh. Maybe someday I can do that too!

You gotta do what works for you. This may be your breakthrough moment. I'm super proud of you! XOXO

It's scary to have to listen completely to what our body is telling us, without relying on an external indicator. I think if more people did what you're doing, REALLY listening to it (not ignoring it, like I know I used to do)- many of us would be lots healthier and thinner. Glad you're feeling good about your losses- clothes size and compliments are a very positive way to gauge. I'm so happy for you.
