The challenge is definately happening!

I'm excited some of you have shown interest. Let's say it's 8 of us and the challenge lasts eight weeks: if we each lose a pound per week that's 64 pounds! Aiiii! I'm excited! I'm going to hammer out all the details by Monday. I'm thinking that the challenge might start on Wednesday? Please share your thoughts!

In other news, today I ate delicious Indian takeout after church with friends--and I tried to be really mindful with my eating...


When I finished this plate, I asked myself: do I really need something more? I was content, I was relieved of hunger, but I told myself a little bit more--maybe just a samosa--was a good idea. But a little bit more ended up to be second helpings of everything! As I sat back in my seat, I realized that I was full, that I had a little space I wanted to save for dessert so I took a few bites and threw the rest of my food out. Uh, NSV (non scale victory)?! I only mention this because I know weight-loss and weight maintenance for me is mindful eating, what this workbook calls "awareness."

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

I need to practice that kind of awareness when I eat! I just ate three pounds of strawberries- I'm sure there are worse foods to eat a lot of but I am SO uncomfortably full now!

I'd be totally set for a Wednesday start. Looking forward to it!

how interesting! yeahh i was just talking about how it's so important to know what our bodies need and listen closely :) the more I "practice" the better I get. But we all have our trial moments! (I'll call them "trial" instead of "fail") hehe

That used to be one of my biggest problems. It helps that I live by myself right now so I only make enough for myself. If I try and make leftovers I have a big problem with the just a little bit more attitude.

- Three pounds of berries?! They musthavebeensweet (like you :)
- Yes, Erika! Yassss!
- Thanks for stopping by, fitforthesoul! I really do believe we can learn better habits.
- Cindy, Huh. I have considered that living alone might be easier since I'd have my own fridge, etc!
