Start Saturday, or in this case, Restart Saturday

At last, the breakthrough I’ve been waiting for. Yesterday was a race day at work, I squeezed myself into my dress and it was snug! I know I looked ‘ok’ and I got a tonne of compliments, which is always good for the self esteem, but I knew, in my heart, that I should have, and could have, looked better – so today I start. Next race day is the 5th of December and I want my dress (same size as yesterday) to be ‘loose’. I just know my mind set has changed – I’m thinking about buying salad ingredients not chips and dip, I’m not already giving myself permission to binge today (as has been happening), I want to get back to seeing the scale go down, I want that goal weight!

I’ve turned the corner. I’m set on weight loss again and not eating my emotions. I want to put that dress on, on the 5th, and know in my heart I do look the best because I worked for it!

The relief of having this frame of mind back is hard to describe. I’ve felt like I had no control over my thoughts (but of course I have) I just slid back in to the old habits when things got stressful and I was out if my routine, but now I know the new habits are back!

Sun is shining, things are looking up, and I feel great.
