Weigh-In … Same Scale & New Victory

Today’s Weight: 187 . 5

Loss/Gain: +/- 0
Total Loss So Far: – 43 . 5 lbs
Well, I am choosing to be content with the maintain this week. It is not a gain and for that I am grateful. I am exercising and drinking water again and slowly but surely I am getting to the place I need to be to see weight loss. I have not tracked my food 100%, so that is my goal for this upcoming week.
I do have a non-scale victory (NSV) to share from last night.
After dinner last night I pulled out a pack of Oreos for dessert for the kids. I wanted one, but I knew that I didn’t really have calorie room for too much, nor did I need them. I settled on having one cookie, which I ate slowly, finishing it with a sip of my daughter’s milk.
Off and on til bedtime I kept thinking about having another one, or having something else, but I knew I didn’t need it. I wasn’t hungry. We had eaten a very late dinner, so I only had an hour or so before bedtime and I knew I could make it without eating anything more.
Telling myself I didn’t need it reminds me of a scripture I came across earlier this week in my Bible reading that is a go-to reminder for me in my weight loss journey… when I choose to follow the advice.
1 Corinthians 6:12 says:
“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.” NKJV
This includes food and not having more than one Oreo last night was a huge victory for me. I was not brought under the power of sweets. Glory!
