Thoughts on being in ONEderland (254 days now!)

Friday, April 19, 2013

I can't believe how long I've been in ONEderland now. I hit it on August 9 of last year, and I haven't gone back above 200 since. Another friend of mine counts the number of days she's been in ONEderland. I haven't done that yet. But I just did, and it's been 254 days of being in ONEderland. It boggles my mind to think that hey, I'm actually doing this.

I have to catch myself not to start with a "two" when asked my weight at the doctor's office (if they don't have a scale themselves).

I have to stop myself from automatically going to the plus size section of clothing departments...and then when I'm in regular misses clothing, not going for an XL. Or even a L at this point. It feels odd. It feels not me.

But it *is* me. I wish I could kick that "fat girl staring back at me in the mirror" problem I have, because that's now who I am anymore. But it's still hard to shake that....

I'm hoping it'll just be a matter of time, patience, and love for myself....

    Wow! You have accomplished a lot. I haven't made it to goal so I don't know how it feels to still feel like your former self, but I see a lot of ppl talk about it on here. I'm sure it is challenging to see yourself the way you are now. Just try to embrace it and know that you're not her anymore! :)
