So, I'm down 28 pounds officially... I will hopefully break the bit 3-0-0 number by the end of next week. My clothes are fitting better, and I have more energy. All good things!
Watching Biggest Loser last night reminds me that there is so much more work to do. There isn't just the physical work, the planning, the cooking, etc. There is a whole truck load of emotional work I have to do. Right now, it's fairly easy.... no one sees much of a difference, I'm just more active, but not noticeably smaller. No one is making comments that I have to deal with, no one is treating me any differently.
I haven't done any emotional work, and although I don't look forward to it, I realize it must be done. I don't know when it will show its ugly head, but when it does, I'll be ready. I believe recognizing that it needs to be done, and that it WILL surface is a step in the right direction. It makes me more conscious of the world around me, and the triggers that set me off track. It should not surprise me when something becomes a roadblock for me, and I will hopefully have the tools to work it out.
So, here's to recognizing the issues, and working them out, one at a time when the time is right.
