Weigh In Day & Faulty Thinking

Posted on: December 4, 2012

I lost 1.2 lbs this week and I am satisfied with that.  They unrolled some a new 360 program today.  I was asked to come up with one small change for the week. I chose to make sure to get the two to three servings of dairy, as I have not been so great at that.

I have to start by saying I am loving the success I have had so far in my weight loss journey.  It feels like such a slow process and I was beginning to feel like I was going no where all the while pedaling super fast…


I think knowing a few people who have just recently had weight loss surgery and who are dropping massive amounts of weight at lightning speeds, while I feel like a snail barely moving along , has been part of the problem.

IMG_0808 Like most problems, they begin in our heads and are self created by our own faulty thinking.  It is foolish to look at someone who had surgery to lose life threatening amounts of weight and compare it to myself and the desire to get fit and yes healthy… pre-diabetic… We each have our own journey and although it may take me longer. I am having success.  After all I’ve dropped 4 and a half inches off my hips and a total of almost 19 inches…


Is there some faulty thinking happening in your life holding you back from even one second of happiness?  Want help on fixing your faulty thinking?  I highly recommend you head over to read about Byron Katie’s “The Work”   It really is as simple as she says, just four questions to ask yourself and to alter your life.  Please note that I offer you this information because I find it powerful in my life and am not receiving compensation in anyway from recommendations on my blog.

Dear Readers: Discovering Byron Katie a few years ago has been life altering for me and I hope you find her just as inspiring.  If you recognize faulty thinking and find benefit in this information, please share your experience.  Your comments are always welcomed and appreciated…

Outfit Details– all remixed except for the dress and purse which were both recent thrift store purchases…

Gratitude; I am grateful for sunshine and temperatures in the 60’s!  I am grateful for the nap I took yesterday after waking up at 6 a. m…..I am grateful for a wonderful phone conversation with an old friend…

Love, love, love the outfit! Tomorrow I plan to shop at some local thrift stores. Hoping I can find beautiful dresses like the ones you have been posting! Wish me luck!!

And congratulations on your successful weight loss journey!

I hope you succeed in your venture. Know that you will have to sift through some crazy long old fashion dresses to find the good stuff! My Goodwill separates out all the knee length dresses, but most do not…. I also advise making sure there is a dressing room and trying everything on… There is a tendency sometimes to buy items without doing so because they are so inexpensive.

Congrats on the weight loss! I know it can be such a tedious journey, but it is definitely worth it. 😉 I lost 30 pounds last year (and regained about 15 this summer – I’ll be getting back on track in January) 🙂 Good luck!

I wish you luck getting back on track. Thank you!

You keep on losing the weight! You are doing it in a healthy manner and making a complete lifestyle change. Inspiring.Slow and steady Tracey, you look great too.


Thank you, it is a healthy way and I know I am doing it the right way by recreating healthy habits..
