So....when does your thought process change???


Thursday, August 23, 2012

So I'm down 26 pounds now since June 26th. Not bad for 2 months! My eating habits are changed, the cravings for junk are gone and I fell GOOD when I make healthy eating choices, and I feel great to be 2 sizes smaller!!! ...however...my brain is still on "fat" mode as far as my thoughts go. I still continue to beat myself up every day that I'm still fat, I'm still ugly, and it's going to take forever for my body to change even though I've made the choice to stay with these healthy ways...does this ever stop? I really try to be positive to myself, I even took myself for a mani/pedi last night to celebrate all my weight loss so far and it felt good for a second, but then my thoughts are right back at Ms Negativity. *sigh* please tell me this doesn't last!!!

    Yea, I'm with Tracy... I have those days too where I still feel 140 pounds heavier. But then you look at your old clothes or remember where you were and how hard you've worked and you realize where you are now. It'll always be in the back of your mind, but I think its a good thing, keeps ya from going backwards! You can do it! Keep up the good work!

    I know what you mean!!!! I struggle with this as well! I will sometimes look in the mirror and be like ugh and then later I'm like why do I do this to myself....when I was almost 190lbs heavier being where I am now was a dream and something I wished for I never thought I would get here....so then I get myself back in check....but unless I'm looking at a pic of myself or trying on clothes I still have those I feel like I'm very large days...I wish there was a button to switch it off to appreciate what we have done and not focus on any negatives....so for me it hasn't went away...but I do bring myself back out of it by reminding myself where I've been :o)

  I think we have to work on our thinking as much as our nutrition and exercise.
We tend to want to go to what is familiar so there is a temptation to want to put the weight back on because it fits with what we know.

    I applaud your success! You did well by choosing to adapt to a new lifestyle, and you are succeeding with that. But one thing that you need to do is love yourself. We can say that we love ourselves, but sometimes it is deeper than that. If you have lived with people or yourself telling that you that you are fat, it is going to be hard to break that image. I think that yoga has helped me to focus and clear my mind. I am starting to appreciate my body again (I have lost 55 pounds with another 30 to go). I am also considering meditation. But I am truly loving me for the first time in my life, and I am almost 42. I have changed my whole image, even letting my hair grow out, lol. So you can do this, you can love yourself! Just keep pushing!!! You will get there. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It takes some time but the negative voices do go away. When you feel them talking to you, just remind yourself how far you have come and what you have accomplished. You are worth it and you can do it !!!

    I know what you mean. I have lost 24 pounds and I still see myself as fat. I'm sure our brains will eventually adjust to our new image.
