Having an "anchor" helps because it means you have support.

Well as you know if you either know me or read my blogs I got quite heavy and then a few years ago I started my weight loss journey and lost over 50 lbs then the past 6 months I've gained about half of it back. When I got to 228 lbs a few weeks ago, (which is almost half way from what I had lost) (starting weight 256 lowest weight 202) I had had enough of it and decided that I was not gaining anymore weight. Since then I've lost about 3 lbs (I weigh in again tomorrow and will fix my ticker then).
Also a good friend from work has given me an "anchor" that she used to use when she was a Weight Watcher's leader. It's a fork pin and I wear it on my shirt everyday. Whenever I feel the urge to eat something that I know I shouldn't I either touch the pin or just glance at it and it reminds me that I do not want to "Dig my grave with a fork". But more importantly it reminds me that I have support and I'm not doing this alone.
I highly recommend "anchors" whether it be a fork pin or an angel pin or something totally different. Something that can constantly remind you of all your hard work, and that their is support out there!! We are not doing this alone!!!
