Leslie this week


Well, it’s interesting isn’t it?  We have a plan and Leslie thinks she’s sticking to it.  She knows what ‘healthy eating’ means and can reel off lists of healthy meals that she’s had.  But she’s not losing any weight.  Now Leslie is still large enough to be losing weight and losing it at a decent rate (around 2 lbs a week) so what is going on?

Well, she thought she might have had a bit of this and a little of that.  She’s got the dentist again this week – so is very stressed and her mind set is such that mindlessly eating a piece of cake is the only thing that can calm her down.    We know that cake tastes good but it doesn’t actually solve anything – and we wonder if rather more stress events have caused even more slices of cake to disappear.    
So Leslie is going to write down (or record on ‘myfitnesspal’) everything that she eats for a full week.  She knows she needs to eat ‘mindfully’ and that this will help.  This is Leslie’s accountability for this week – to notice what she is eating and to focus on that eating – not just absentmindedly eat something because its there (or because it needs ‘finishing up’!)
