OK Guys from those who reported we have a phenomenal BL this week.
Huge kudos to Teresa for a 3.95% weight loss this week. Her loss is just proof that if we stick with what we know and don’t give up our bodies will eventually respond the way we need them/want them to! Way to persevere Teresa!
We had a couple who lost at least 1% this week as well! Lina and Me (it is weird to write my name down!)
I know some of you have been discouraged by “small” losses or no losses or even gains. Do NOT give up guys! Keep doing what you know works. Keep taking the next right step forward. Keep choosing to go again when you mess up, because we all will mess up from time to time. Just don’t go quiet and retreat into the abyss! You are not alone!
Let’s move on into the next week!
This week let’s have a little challenge.
I want you to all think about your favorite binge food. Your comfort thing. The food(s) you go to most often when you are messing up big time! Think not only of the food(s) but the quantity that you would eat. Then do some calorie research. How many calories was that food and in the quantities that you would most often eat it in.
For me, when I am in really bad places, my comfort food was anything from KFC. I hate to admit this but I could easily have eaten a full 4 piece meal and some wings when I was really trying to stuff my emotions and just eat.
How many meals worth of calories would you have eaten in that one binge?
For the second part. Now come up with something healthy and delicious to replace that binge food with. Because the reality is, we are likely going to binge again…I hope not, but I am not dumb or naive either. But perhaps if we have the makings on hand for something delicious AND better for us our binges will be less costly.
Now post your results in the comment section!
