I don't know how many of you were Northern Exposure fans, but, the character of Ed had a green man who was his inner critic. This is who I picture in my head when the evil criticisms creep in. That man has come out of the hole I shoved him in to speak harshly to me again, and again, and again. Ever since last nights weigh-in. He is such a jerk! I am exposing him here because I have learned that the only way to shove him back in the hole is by outing him and his un-truths! ( I learned that in therapy years ago, because no matter how much I want him to pack his bags and leave permanently...we all have an inner critic that we must learn to deal with).
One pound lost IS a great thing! One pound lost is added to the other 2 to make 3 pounds LOST (not gained). There is NO food I "shouldn't" have eaten. There is no food I "should" have eaten instead. There is no exercise I "should" have done more or harder. I did what I did, I ate what I ate AND I feel GOOD about it. I am a good person no matter what my weight/ size/ shape! I am a fantastic person no matter my weight/size/shape! I will keep doing my BEST each and everyday!!!
Now take that Little Green Man! And go Away!
