It is working

Could this be the key? I have nothing to say about my diet one way or the other EXCEPT

it is working.

I am paying no attention to it whatsoever. I am not obsessing. I am not even thinking.

it is working.

I'm not eating funny foods. I'm not craving anything. I'm not scared if I eat a morsel that's 'not on the plan'

it is working.

There is no hurry. No stress. No 'I should be' or 'I shouldn't be'. It just is what it is and

it is working.

I know this because even though I am not measuring myself or weighing myself, we are taking photos every Sunday evening in the same tight clothes and

it is working.

Three words that stand out for me this week:

1. Persistence
2. Consistence
3. Daily

I'm charmed, as ever, by Diminishing Lucy

Absolutley brilliant!!! There is something to be said for having someone else take all the responsibility for your food choices - it really does take a lot of the stress away from this whole deal...after all most of the stress is in the decision making.
I think your proof of this theory!!
I'm really happy for you :-) Keep it up!

Great post. Sometimes we just need to let go mentally and let things fall where they should by themselves.

Congrats!
