Wheee, I’m maintaining! It doesn’t sound that sexy, does it? Not as sexy as, “I’ve just lost a pound.” Not as sexy as “I’m making progress…”
So that’s my problem with maintenance. I am used to slapping myself around for the scale not moving. In the past staying the same meant bad news. Still overweight? Ha Ha! The little voice inside me knew just what to say to shame me. Staying the same was bad, bad, bad.
But now that I am at a healthy weight staying the same means, well it means, GOOD NEWS.
So my little voice and I are going to have some tough times for a while.
It’s not my weight that needs to change, Little Voice. It’s YOU that needs to make some changes. Try this script on for size: “Great going. You are maintaining a healthy weight. You are awesome!”
