The weight

I'm up 0.2 this week. Not horrible, but not the direction I want to see the scale moving. But how much do I really REALLY want it? That's what's been tormenting me this week. If I really REALLY want it, I'll make it happen. I've done it before. I can do it again. But I have to REALLY want it. I have to really sacrifice. And, so far, to be brutally honest, I haven't been willing to do that. Even though I'm miserable when I look in the mirror.

Vickie inspired me to be really honest today. And that's it.

thanks for the link - loved the clip - want to use those wooden racks!!! (behind Iyengar in studio when he is sitting on the floor) - my guess is that you do handstands back into them - what's yours???

That's nothing. Don't worry about zero point two. It could be anything. You're right in that if you want it, you have to make CHOICES (not necessarily sacrifices). I say CHOICES because sacrifices sound, well, so permanent.

You're so cute and honestly, I wish I looked like you. (And had your great mental attitude.) Be good to yourself.

I am a fellow moon lover. I look for it each night in all its phases. I love it when it's full. Being really honest works wonders for me. I have been lingering around the same weight for a while going up and back down. And the truth was that I was getting content with where I was. Then I realized that I wanted to see what it would be like to lose the rest. So now I am motivated again. A point 2 rise is teensy weensy and could be attributed to anything, even dust on the scale....

Thanks all...I'm leaving this post at the top for at least a few more days because I need to see it and think about it.

Having said that, I had an amazing, special dinner last night (a friend who is an old yoga teacher of mine got comp'd at a restaurant that is $200 plus per person!): a tasting menu, 7 courses plus cheese and dessert and wine pairings. The portions were so small that I'm sure I didn't overeat, but I felt so SATISFIED. Another thing to think about...

Tonight I made spaghetti squash and salad and DB and I both agree it was really satisfying. Hmmm....
