Staying in Your Own Lane

Did you survive the Thanksgiving Day feast? 

 I lightened up all my dishes, used portion control, and stayed within my points. I didn't feel deprived and had a wonderful weekend with Rob and Tally. We went hiking on three of the days, and I made it to the top of Amicalola Falls, which was NOT easy, but it was fun and I felt a great sense of accomplishment when I reached the top, hence the Superhero stance. 

What I was not pleased about was weigh-in on Tuesday. Now, I'm always thrilled to go to my meeting on Tuesdays, it's the highlight of my week, and I'm never fearful to get on the scale because it's just a bit of data, after all. It does not define my worth, nor does it take away my reaching the top of the Falls! But I gained 1.6 pounds, and hearing that many of my meeting mates had gone hog wild over the weekend and still ending up having losses on the scale got to me, and I was less than happy!  But I gave myself an attitude adjustment, I told myself to be happy for them and be happy for my non-scale victories. I enjoyed the biggest food holiday without overeating, without feeling guilty, and did some very good things for my body. 

I'm going to stay in my own lane and keep working the program, keep walking with Tally, and keep on setting goals for myself and smashing them!


  1. What a powerful post! Sometimes it is really hard to be happy for others. great job rocking it!

  2. Thanks for reading Melissa! It's always better to be happy for people, I find that happiness radiates back at me when I work at. Take good care.
