Take It Off: I’m Breaking Up with My Scale {Week 23}

Medifast | Week 23

I’m going on a break with my scale. I’m sick, I’m cranky, I just don’t want to think about what I weigh this week. Instead, I want to focus on how I feel {aside from being sick and miserable}.

My pants are starting to fall off…again.

My size large shirts are looser.

And? I think it’s time to get another bra fitting…again.

I find that focusing on these non-scale victories keep me going, especially when the scale isn’t.

Another thing about being sick is that I am craving comfort food. I’m not gonna lie. I indulged on a little sorbet last night and it felt so good on my throat. Aside from that, it’s been chicken noodle soup and shakes! It’s nice to have a taste of comfort food when you are sick and stay on plan.

I promise a “real” post with a weight loss update next week!
