Waiting and Thinking

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

I've been doing very well for about the past two months or so but I keep waiting for the bottom to drop out. I'm wondering when I will revert back to bad behaviors, have a huge binge or just give up. It hasn't happened yet and I'm stressing. Yes, I know, not good.

I also think next time I go to the Dr to get weighed (next Thursday--I'm going every two weeks) I'm not going to see any results and be totally heart broken. I know its not all about weight loss but that's what I'm focused on. I've been doing some great things but I just feel like it's not 'for real' or something.

So, I'm leaving myself with this:

(Side note: I made the quiona cups last night and they were AMAZING! I think I found my new favorite thing!)

    Bummer about the uncertain thoughts... Wish I had some advice, but I'm so glad to know you've " been doing very well for about the past two months or so" - that speaks volumes to me!

    Good advice about living in the present and also not over-thinking things to the point of creating additional stress on ourselves. And, quinoa cups?! I must know! I'm off to do a search for them now...

    Starting right now make a list of all the non-scale victories you can think of. I hope you're also measuring yourself and tracking that so that you can show yourself changes are happening.

    You're seeing the dietitian.
    You're discovering new foods.
    You're tracking nutrition.
    You're drinking your water.
    You're moving your body.

    I'm sure you can add to the list. You are getting there, one step at a time, even if you can't see it!

    You're absolutely right - thinking too much creates problems that weren't there in the first place!

    Half of the work I have done for myself since joining SP 7 months ago has been syncing up my head with my body. Doing the mental work necessary so that I manage to not get in my own way and sabotage myself or give up.

    I'm an Emotional Eater and it's one day at a time. That's all I'm responsible for. Not gonna live in the past. Not gonna worry about the future. Just gonna focus on today and get through!

    You're already doing it!

    WOW, two months! I think you've got a streak going :) I may have to try those quiona cups, they sound delicious. I like using it in lots of dishes, seasoned for all sorts of things. MMMM
    Hope you do get to see some tangible results at your weigh-in, for motivation if nothing else.

    Hehe... sometimes I totally wish I could turn my brain off too. Maybe the trick is to try to catch ourselves everytime we're feeling afraid of failure and make ourselves focus on the positive stuff instead. Sounds like you've had a great 2 months and I bet you could create a whole list of things you've achieved and the number of the scale would only be one thing on that list. Keep on rocking!
