Not one of my better assets! Its been a couple of weeks since I' ge weighed myself. And of coarse I thought I would be down more then I was! Then I go through this crazy thought cycle of sadness, anger, frustration, disappointment and then I think why didn't I do better? Why didn't I do more?
Today, after calming down, I was thinking about things I've told patients I care for that have had a stroke, or new diagnosis of seizure disorder, or back surgery etc.. I usually tell them the hardest part of the recovery process is patience because it takes time to heal, regain strength and normal movement.
My process will also take time and patience! I guess I'm still learning how to apply these ideas to myself. I know how to direct others but not myself - very well any way. I'll just keep pushing forward and be happy the I'm down in weight and not up.
