Blue but Hanging In

Saturday, September 07, 2013

Feeling a little bit blue and a little bit overwhelmed today. I thought I was doing so well and then I weighed myself and gained a pound. It will be three months on Sept. 19th that I became serious about weight lose. Trying to stay postiive, I visited my goals and realized that according to the charts I need to lower my goal weight by 11 pounds to reach a good BMI. That is a little bit of a downer to say the least. Anyhow, I made the change to my goals and I will strive for this new LOWER number.

So, putting a positive spin on this, I realized that I have met 1/3 of my goal weight...2/3's left to go! I will do this in increments. I know that I can succeed with a postiive attitude. Clonk...that is the club hitting my head with an attitude adjustment LOL! I've no reason to feel down because I am doing fine and I have to learn not to obsess over what the scale tells me. I'm back into smaller sizes, physically I have more energy, etc. Get over it girl!

In retrospect, losing the first 20 has not been so bad and I do enjoy my new eating habits. Guess I have to learn to be kinder to myself.

On that note, I am off for a walk and I am putting a smile on my face.

    Good for you. emoticon

    Weight can fluctuate so much from day to day. I have the same thoughts sometime---oh no---all that work and I'm going up. But I try to notice the long-term trend. You are doing great emoticon
