That's right, folks, I am three pounds down this week. Which is a great result, and a pound more than my basic 'goal' I hold of two pounds per week. So why am I still not satisfied? It isn't that I don't see it for the achievement it is, or even that I feel like I worked harder than that three pounds shows. It isn't even impatience.
No, normally I would be thrilled with this result, and I would be dancing around my place going 'WHEE!' a little piggy going all the way home. The reason I am not satisfied THIS week is that I am only a single pound away from having lost 50 lbs.
I know, it is stupid to be so hung up on getting to fifty pounds when I have so far to go. Plus, I will get there next week for sure. BUT I AM JUST SO CLOSE! I want that pound off to both hit the 50 lost, and also show an even number on the scale.
So when I say I am 'not happy', that isn't true. I am very happy, just not as happy as I would be with one more pound. Come on, body...just one week of four pounds lost and I will let you go back to your more comfortable pace like you want to. Just. One. More. Pound.
