Well for this weeks challenge over at Tales from the Scales, I lost 1/2 pound. I am not complaining. That only leaves eight pounds to go. I had a non scale victory this past week as well. I went to the doctor for a physical (yes this was a result of all of the recent cancer diagnoses), and she was impressed with my recent weight loss as well as my maintenance of my previous weight loss. It is always a confidence booster for a health professional to be impressed.
***update*** I just got a call from the doctor's office and the results of all of my labwork was "very normal". I really like being normal.
I have still been reading The Beck Diet Solution. As I get farther into it, I can recognize several things I have done that have made my journey a success this time while I wasn't really conscious of them at the time. However, reading them has made me more conscious and has really reinforced those ideas. Everything from being accountable to a coach to tracking what I eat to simply knowing that it is OK to feel hungry at times.
