So today I finally had the courage to stand on the scale and my weight has shot up 2 lbs ! I know I shouldn't be surprised with the way I have been eating the sweet delicacies for Big Bro's Birthday and all..what did I really expect here?
By now, I should know how my body and metabolism works,~~ REALLY!!~~ Still I get frustrated and upset EVERY SINGLE time I see a weight gain on the scale! Also what makes me think that loosing weight = me being a "GOOD" person and gaining weight= to me being a "BAD" / sometimes even "UGLY" person?
I try not to think that the number on the scale DOES NOT make or break who I am !!! I still struggle with the Self Image of what I should be, (in my mind I have this number on the scale) which I should be!

I have been running only alternate days-and still struggling on finding that window of time in the evening to do my workout.My body does not loose weight with Alternate days of exercise! The Diet part has been average except the desserts that were left over and me working from home this entire week.
I need to have gone out of this 90's long back-but I still am here, and that means, things need to change a little just for a bit so I do bump start the result and get in the the 180's. So with much apprehension I am thinking I will try and do the Lentil Soup Diet again,just till I get into the 180',s.
Every day for Lunch I will have a different Lentil (Dal) soup with tonnes of Veggies, home made of course! And for dinner I'll either have Vegetables with some Quinoa or Quinoa and some other kind of Dal.
The real question is what if I get a craving for sugar after dinner and then I can't control myself what do I do then? I guess I will try eat the portion control 90 calories dessert I got-or try and eat some fruit to begin with to see if that helps stop the craving,
What do you guys do for cravings and to bump start the plateau?
