Is the Scale Broken?

For the past five days, the scale has read 160 each morning.   This is the first time that I can ever remember the scale reading the same weight for more than two days in a row.   I am still flying high from reaching my goal weight and I know that I am close to hitting a solid plateau.  Running Without a Watch has brought a peacefulness to my life that I have never before experienced.   

While I still run on most days, I don’t stress anymore when I miss a day.  I continue to eat in a healthy manner, which includes allowing for the occasional outing to a restaurant or carry out. The other day, when we ordered pizza, I ate two slices and felt satisfied, instead of my usual four or five.  

Today at work, we had the October birthday celebrations.  While my co-workers ate cake, candy bars and chocolate milk, I politely declined.   It wasn’t even a big deal; the food just didn’t appeal to me.  If they had served some chocolate cheese cake, now that would have been a different story! 

For the first time in my life, I feel in control.  Rather than letting food control me, I am controlling the food.
