No change in weight...

...but after last week--that steady number on the scale is amazing!  My eating is getting better and cleaner, and closer to what I know is good for me.
If you were wondering...I'm still  FT'ing. I love it's simplicity-I really do. I know many people who are slender & healthy that eat bread/grains everyday at most meals.  Just know for me they trigger something in my brain-that I don't feel full/satisfied.   I've made a conscience and informed decision for myself.
Yesterday, I pondered  self-care. I cooked a healthy dish, and offered it up to myself as self-care. I gave myself permission to not run errands or feel compelled to over work, and I considered it a form of self-care. Today I'm resting a little more--I'm calling that some self-care too.  Everyday looks different, so I know what feels caring to me today--might feel unproductive and not the best use of my time on another day. So I just need to listen.
I do so much better when I listen to myself: Rest, eat less grain carbs, speak kinder to yourself, forgive yourself and others...you know what I mean...just listen.

  1. This is good to hear. I'm glad your taking care of yourself; it can be hard to do, but needs to be done...it does fall into the NEED category. I'm glad your doing better, and your weight is steady.

  5. Hey that's great that the scale stayed the same! See, it wasn't as bad as you thought! I love the idea of giving yourself some self-care. For me I call it pampering and sometimes you just have to pamper yourself with whatever you need, rest, good food, a shopping trip, watch a "girls only" type movie, whatever brings you balance and peace.

  6. WE do tend to forget ourselves in teh day to day hustle & bustle. Good for you for recognizing that you need to do nice things for yourself, slow down and make "nice talk" to yourself too.
    Dont worry about the scale. Sounds like you are back on the right track!
    Hugs to you!
