I have been within a few pounds of my goal weight for several weeks now and sabotage it frequently. I am afraid that if I get it I will lose it so therefore I don't want it in case I lose it. Isn't this silly, real, human?
Geez, I've never actually written this down before and now that I am reading it I am seeing how unkind I am being to myself. I am not thinking positively. If I lose it, I can get it back. If I get it once, I can get it again and again if I want it.
Well thank you for such a wonderful and inspiring question. I had a similar aha moment when I bought my first size medium. The sales girl must have thought I was nuts when I said I couldn't take a medium because I hadn't taken a medium in years. She talked me through it but I was afraid to try the pants on... BUT the large was too big. Go figure.
You know what, even positive things can feel uncomfortable until we get comfortable with the idea of them. It's like our minds have to catch up with us sometimes. LOL.
