As hard as it can be, I am hiding my scale and weighing once a week. For the weekly weigh in, I am now 6.5 pounds down since restarting this macro journey for the third time. I know this works, I just have to stick the course. Plus, as I get older, I have to accept it may take a little longer but working in wine with friends and a homemade dessert with family makes it enjoyable and not a diet.
First big tip: The magic is in the weekends people. I worked hard to food shop after work Thursday and food prepped Friday. When food is prepped going into a weekend, you have better choices available.
This weeks take away: as a mom, and sometimes in other aspects of my life, I wonder if I am enough. Am I making a difference? I am. Every day. I try to set a good example, be kind and treat others with respect. Sometimes people around us don’t act that way. I am not entitled to their good behavior, kindness or support, I am just happy when it happens. Others judge you by your actions, not whatever intentions are in your head. Walk the walk and be humble about it. People are watching.
