    I've been trying to be particularly analytical about all my thoughts about weight loss, to get the most from the counselling.

    Today, I was thinking about why I like weigh in day so much. There's obviously the prospect of losing weight, and meeting the group again, but it's more than that. It's because I know getting through today will be easy, its a given because I want to get to the scales.

    Makes sense, but does that then mean I'm not sure I'll make it through on other days? I think deep down it does. I think, in the back of my mind, I lack confidence (even though I've made it to day 17) and think that I'll throw this off and binge, either when the going gets tough or when I reach goal weight.

    How do I get round this? I'd really appreciate your thoughts on how I can turn this thinking around.

    Don't be too hard on yourself, you're changing habits of a lifetime here. It takes longer than 17 days to change a learned habit.

    If you know that weigh-in days are easier for you, you can always ask your LLC for an extra pop-in day midweek betweek w/ins.

    Ours suggests them for anyone that is feeling shaking and they do wonders for keeping you focused. At this point, so early in foundation, use any tools you have to keep yourself on the right path. The other stuff will sort itself out as you progress through the course.
