Yep I lost it

Saturday, August 17, 2013

Yep I lost it for a moment last night. I haven't been feeling good last few days with a summer cold. I started feeling sorry for myself , I had not exercised most of the week, but I kept telling myself that it was because I don't feel good. then I looked at the chart which I have kept since Jan. 19,2011 when I first started losing weight at that point I got even harder on myself because I didn't think I had lost very much weight in 2 years. I talk to a friend about how I have lost a lb here and a lb there. She asked me if I ever added them up. No was my answer so, I added them up and to my total shock I have lost 70 lbs.

I learned a lesson last night add before getting upset. Don't worry about want you can't do when your sick but try alittle. And finally trust in yourself

    Congrats on the loss! It's amazing what happens to your body when you aren't paying attention :) I hope you are feeling better by now. Take inspiration from that 70 lbs and when you are feeling better jump right back to where you had to leave off. :)

    I agree totally. I was at almost the same point in my weight loss and complaining that I had been losing VERY slowly and someone said they thought I was losing pretty fast - I did the math and actually despite LONG plateaus, erratic patterns of loss, it averaged up to about 1.5 pounds per week - almost the PERFECT amount for me. You sometimes HAVE TO DO THE MATH. You should be totally proud of yourself.

    Wowzers!!! Congratulations on the loss!! Happy Dance!!!! There is also someone who has two bowls and stones in them. One bowl full of pounds you want to lose and bowl two can be pounds lost. Just take from one and put in the other! HOORAY!!!! Way to Go!!

    Any loss is an big improvement, but it is hard to see that on a day to day basis. But 70 lbs is HUGE! Go reward yourself right now!
And you are right about not getting down on yourself, it never does any good and just makes you feel worse and worse... Now if i could just take my own advice! (I am extremely hard on myself!)
You are doing AWESOME! Tell yourself that a few times! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon Wow! You should be so proud of yourself. I copied an idea from another Sparker and started a chair of paperclips - one for every pound lost. It's short now but will grow! Just think how long a chain of 70 would be!
I deal with "down days" a lot and seldom have a concrete reason for them. All you can do is keep pushing and thinking "just for today" - I can do this "just for today."
