Non Scale Victory!

When I went to pick up the baby last night, I saw that {as usual} my mother in law made dinner. Fried chicken and arroz con salchichas {yellow rice with little sausages}. One of my favorite meals of hers! Instead of even having a small portion, I turned it down despite her dismay and little guilt trip LOL. I realized there was NOTHING healthy about that meal, and I wouldn’t feel good after I ate it. I realize that in life I am allowed to treat myself once in a while, that is normal and healthy even, but I felt like it might be trigger food because I like it so much, and I would rather eat a healthy wrap at home.

Maybe it’s not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but at that moment it felt HUGE!

I lost a pound of the 1.5 I gained, but I decided that I won’t weigh myself again until a week later. I don’t want the number to play games with my head, and I’d rather focus on the positive things I am doing! I looked at myself in the mirror this morning and felt proud of the changes I am making. I can see them already!

  1. That's AWESOME! It is difficult to turn down food when someone else has made it for you, but I'm sure they understand. I continuously text my friend everytime I have a "small victory" (as I call them). Anytime I turn down my favorite unhealthy food or decide to go for a walk. Those are just as important as anything because they keep you going!

    Keep at it, you're doing great!!
