I Can't Seem To Celebrate My Accomplishments

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

So, I lost 0.2 lbs this week. It upset me that I lost so little. Immediately and still now a day later, I can't stop obsessing about it. I don't want to do anything but stay in bed. I want to cry. I feel fat. When I look in the mirror, I see the rolls of fat on my 215.8 lb body. I want out of this negative frame of mind, yet I seem unable. My depression was bad today and I know it's the result of the weigh in. I wish I didn't obsess about things so much. It doesn't help one bit. My husband suggested I weigh myself tonight as seeing the same or lower weight might help lift this upsetting feeling. Think I'll do that and see what happens. Better idea would be to focus on the 31.8 lbs I've lost to date and celebrate my accomplishments. Gotta work on this.

    My scale hardly moves but my inches are down.Remember the scale is really dumb, it can't tell the whole story, it can't tell you if you are building muscle and losing fat, it could use a good pair of glasses to really focus in on what's going on.

Keep a list of all the good things that are happening to you including that great 31.8 lbs lost!

    My guess is there are a lot of other things to celebrate too! I don't lose weight fast either but I know that I feel better and I know that I am getting healthier so I try not to focus on the numbers. It helps me to get up and go if I only commit to exercising for ten minutes. By the end of that time I can usually do ten more and by then I am beginning to feel better. Do hang in there. If you have lost 38 pounds you are well on your way! Congratulations for that! emoticon
