Why Aren't I Happier?
Sunday, January 23, 2011
I lost 3 lbs this week and I'm ok with it but why is it bothering me? My 1st week I lost 2 lbs and I was real happy about those 2lbs and glad to see the scale actually starting to go down for once. My 2nd week I lost 7 lbs and maybe that's why the 3lbs is somewhat a let down. I know I can't pull big numbers every week & that it's also not healthy. I know it's better than gaining. But, it's weird how the number game also plays mind games. In alittle while this will pass and it won't bother me anymore. I think it's not so much setting goals that causes disappointments but it's setting unrealistic goals. I wanted to lose 5 lbs this week and I lost 3. I shouldn't be looking at the fact that I didn't lose the 5 lbs but that I still had an accomplishment of losing 3lbs. So, 3 lbs is good. This in no means is a set back. I will look at the glass as 1/2 full not 1/2 empty.
