Temper Tantrum Follow-up

Sunday, February 10, 2013

To all of you who responded to my Temper Tantrum blog - A HUGE THANK YOU!

I had no idea it would strike such a strong cord with so many people, and I'm grateful to know that other people found my thoughts helpful. Gratitude became a way of life for me more than 30 years ago and has helped me through a variety of difficult periods in my life. I highly recommend it - and the more troubles you have, the more gratitude you need to express.

I thought you might like to know that the scale actually did budge that 1 pound the next morning, but it has done that before and then bounced back up again, just as though to tease me. So we'll see what the next several days produce.

I will try to respond personally to those who posted comments, but if I miss you please know that I apologize for any oversight and wish you the best.

    Scales are like men...you can't live with them, you can live without them and you can't tell what they truly mean emoticon

    You're doing great (even if you don't think so right at this moment) -- hang in there, and before you know it the time will have gone by and so will the extra pounds!!

    I want to be at my goal weight by like tomorrow but losing 111 pounds overnight isn't going to happen. I am happy to see the numbers go down every week. I have lost 6 pounds over the course of 3 weeks and then the next week gained a pound and a half and then the following week I lost the pound and a half. Mondays are my weigh in days so tomorrow morning I'll get on the scale. I'm not sure what to expect. I don't know if I gained weight or if I have lost weight. I'm hoping I lost weight. I'm glad for sparkpeople.com for keeping me on track since I normally lose interest and stop after a while. This time I am sticking to it whether I like it or not. It's been tough some days to get motivated but then I look in the mirror or at pictures.

    I didn't get to read your Temper Tantrum yet, but just to comment on this update, it sounds like you found your ground! Yes, gratitude is the way ... but really ... losing weight is hard and waiting to see if the numbers moved is hard to wait for. I'm with ya there ... it's all new to me, just started in January 2013. 1 lb. is all I lost ... but I'm not disappointed YET emoticon
