Arthur Stone & Sophie Dog ... Non-Scale Victories

Arthur Stone & Sophie Dog ... Non-Scale Victories

Hello peeps. I will be stepping on the scales in a couple of days. Whatever the result my non-scale victories this week.. (1) Eight days ago my neighbour gave me a packet of cookies. I ate one on day eight. Prior to this weight loss journey the complete packet would've been devoured by myself in less than 24 hours. (2) Five days ago my neighbour gave me a box of cup cakes for our staff meeting. I've eaten none. A member of staff ate one and the rest are still here. Again prior to this weight loss journey the whole box would've been devoured by myself within twenty-four hours. What's more interesting is that I've not even been remotely tempted to eat them. As you can see here even Sophie, my training partner is surprised. — feeling fantastic.

Thank you. I'm sure Sophie would love to eat the goodies but I need them for training purposes. Avoiding the shops to buy sweet treats is one thing but If I can have sweet treats in the cupboard without being tempted to eat them then I've won the psychological battle.

I'm guessing you're feeling quite empowered to be as strong as that.

Congrats and fingers crossed for the weigh in.

I agree with you ..... the psychological battle is the most difficult :)

Haa haa, I think Sophie has her eye on those treats waiting for the moment when you open the packets!

But isn't the taste of success so much better than those goodies?

Well done - WELL DONE! :D :D

PS Can see three "red" traffic lights on those cookies from here, and an amber for the salt content. Killer food :D
