One step closer

Friday, September 09, 2011

My biggest challenge in this journey is my cognitive distortions; not the eating, not the exercise, but changing how I think about weight and how I measure success in a process.

I struggle with perfectionism. I am working through it as a mother and now as a Sparkperson. Change is good for me, but I am very judgemental about myself - all or nothing or I fail.

Well, as I posted earlier, I now skip the occasional day tracking my food. This does not mean that I will fail. I now have seen this manifest physically!!! I lost MORE weight these past few weeks than I did when I was tracking. This doesn't mean that tracking isn't valuable, just that I can relax about something, can let go of. I am not sabotaging my efforts, I am living a healthy life. emoticon

One step closer to healthy thinking!
