How does weight loss feel?


FINALLY seeing progress in my weight loss journey feels better than:
  • the "satisfaction" of eating Cheetos
  • enjoying a glass of wine
  • completing a workout at the gym
  • reading about the weight loss of others and getting motivated
  • spending money on gym memberships that I don't use
  • lying to myself and saying that I am making changes to my diet
And a million other things.

This week when I am looking at the scale and I see that I was able to lose a significant amount of weight in 1 WEEK and I remember how amazing I felt, I know that I can't let myself gain it back. I just cannot.

Yesterday, I went out to eat with my coworkers to celebrate a belated Boss' Day, and I ordered a salad and allowed myself to have a few pieces of the appetizer that we shared. I was proud of myself that I was able to not indulge because I would rather keep the weight off before I take a second helping of fried pickles. As long as I can remember this happy feeling, I feel that I will be able to keep the weight off for the long term.
