My Body

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Most of the time I really hate my body. Like, really hate.

Then it does some nice things for me and I am slowly learning to like it a little more.

I think my body has more faith in me that *I can* do this weight loss.

The last week or so I have been eating mostly ok, with a couple of splurges here and there. I haven't really exercised in the last couple of weeks, even though my fitbit says I am. I wear it all of the time and where I work, I am on my feet running around, so I suppose it counts that. Anyway, this past week I have been down in the dumps I suppose for a million different reasons. I was sure I was going to completely bomb this weigh -in and go down the old spiral where I give up.

So I step on the scale this morning and I am still on target by losing another 2.6 pounds. What the heck??

Despite all of the stresses and feeling like I failed, my body was there to cheer me up by saying I can do this and I AM doing this. My body doesn't want me to give up on it. It's saying "Please don't do this to us, I know you can do it, please don't give up! We need each other."

I know I shouldn't be happy about what the scale is, but I just thought it was my body giving me a little sign. It did cheer me up a bit and made me not feel so bad about myself.

To my body - I guess you're not so bad.

    Congrats on the scale moving in the right direction. The first key to all of this is don't be so hard on yourself. You have tolearn to love the body you have now and that will help you get to the body you want to have in the future.
