I had a vision of myself getting on the scale, this weekend, and either not seeing movement or seeing movement in the other direction. I can't say I'm doing much in terms of strength training, so I wouldn't be able to say it'd be muscle gain...
the point is, I saw myself getting discouraged. It's not a visual I want to have, it just happened. I don't really know how I'll react if that happens, so I guess I'm trying to brace myself. The rest of the week is going well, so maybe I could just go with that.
I thought about not weighing myself, this coming weekend. I thought about it! But I'm not going to scare myself or let myself be discouraged. This is a very early point in very early stages. It's so easy to give up at this point with the smallest setbacks- even ones that HAVEN'T EVEN HAPPENED! If it happens as I'm foreseeing, I can examine where I need a boost. If it doesn't, I can breathe a little easier and make improvements as I go- maybe treat myself with a movie or something.
Whatever happens, I think I'm prepared for it. I think this is helping me prepare. It might not be as bad as I think, but I know how to handle it if it is! Thank you.
