★ Went to the doctor this morning and had a blood test to check my hormone and thyroid levels
★ Got a referral to see a psychologist about my eating and body issues
★ Made an appointment to see said psychologist on Monday night
★ Banged out 4 x 10 pushups on my toes this morning
★ Went to the snack machine to get a snack and then left without getting anything
★ I weighed in at the doctors at 64kg fully clothed after breakfast - I saw 62.7kg on my scales first thing this morning
★ Although I've been slightly down today and almost invoked the extra 200 calorie rule tonight, I stuck to my eating strategy
Day #10 - Set a Realistic Goal
The book says to only set a 5 pound goal at a time - that's 2.5kg. I have just about lost that since Sunday. I am faintly suspicious that my body likes to be around 62kg and will settle there no matter what I do. If I have overeaten, the excess weight drops easily as soon as I am back on track and if I diet below that point, I bounce straight back up again as soon as I stop being strict with my food.
So in the spirit of doing what I am told, I am setting my first goal at 62.5kg and I will reward myself when I get there.

I read my Advantages Response Card at least twice.
I read other Response Cards as needed.
I ate slowly, sitting down and noticing every bite
I gave myself credit when I engaged in helpful eating behaviours
I did spontaneous and planned exercise
I set a goal to lose 2.5kg
