I have finally come to the decision to drop out of my other challenge and made a new challenge for myself. I want to see how I do experimental purposes really. I have decided that I will not count anything, I will not log my food, I will not WEIGH IN daily for the next month. I am going to see how I do with only weighing in ONCE a month!
I won’t lie I am a bit nervous about this because normally I need accountability. I need something to show I am making some progress. BUT I have found in this journey that with the slow process I think “seeing” the so called “progress” daily is effecting me in a negative way. I think it’s apart of me wanting to say F it all and just give up.
I don’t want to give up. BUT I also don’t want to be obsessed. I see it this way I have been doing this way of life now for like what? four months? It’s pretty normal to me now and I know what things are good for me and what things are not. I am leaving it up to me to decide if I should have that ice cream not some program that says I am out of calories then leaving me feeling deprived.
I am hoping that this will releave some stress on me as well… I mean if I am only losing one pound a week why obess over the scale right? I mean it’s obvious it will take some time before I will lose a pant size, take a picture where “I” see a difference.
I do fear I will gain all I have lost. But maybe this will be better, it’s like saving your money for a rainy day. 1 dollar a day might not seem like much to some but 30 dollars handed to you in one day does! It’s weird but it’s a mind thing.
So here is to my challenge.
1. NO Scale time until August 1st (which is 4 weeks from my last weigh in)
2. NO counting, or logging food
Lets see what the next month holds…
