Thank you for your supportive comments. Self-acceptance should be at the top of my pile of options but I think my thighs are covering it up.
My latest rant wasn't intended to be a poorly-masked plea for compliments, although the kind words were a very nice by-product ;), and while running this morning I came up with a simple plan.
Usually I weigh myself several times a day in order to remember that weight fluctuates. This seems to be my undoing of late as I tend to give up or give in when I get below a certain weight and I'm especially bad if I hit that number on Friday or Saturday. So, the plan for this week is to keep up with my current efforts--running a little more, eating a little less--but not to weigh for an entire week.
Radical the plan is not but maybe it will keep me from slipping backwards, especially over the weekend. Other parts of this week's efforts include:
* take Kristen's advice to brush right after dinner,
* drink equal parts of water to DDP (sad that it has to be such an overt effort),
* stock up on salad and veggies for wEAkend snacking.
I'll let you know how it goes.
