Mind over matter
Tuesday, June 15, 2010
It's amazing how mental the weight loss game has been. I've recently been struggling with the ability to congratulate myself for my successes. I go back and forth between feeling proud of my everyday efforts and feeling unchanged.
Today, I feel proud. I worked out extremely hard on my lunch break and I think I must be experiencing the post-cardio endorphin high. It feels good and I feel like I've accomplished something big.
My body is changing. I know I'm losing inches, and even though it can be hard to tell when they are gradually coming off, I can feel the difference. I have little to no back pain anymore. My clothes are getting looser. I am starting to feel more confident when I look into the mirror. I am seeing the change in myself and I'm on my way to becoming the person I want to be.
Today, I will embrace this feeling of accomplishment. I will be proud of myself for doing the very thing I could never get myself to do before. And I will overcoming my mind and allow myself the celebrate.
