When Does it Become REAL?!?!?!?!?!

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Two and half years, from a size 14 to a size 8

However, I still feel and see the size 14. I know it's mental, but when do my mind catch up with what's real. I slip on the size 8, knowing it's a size 8, but I feel emoticon . When people say how much more weight do you want to loose (indicating they feel I am small enough) I just reply I don't know. I guess when I stop feeling fat.

Hmmmmm, WHEN WILL THIS BE????!!!!! emoticon

Lord, please allow my heart and mind to catch up with what You have designed, thus far, in me.

    I feel you. I lost 30lbs and still want to buy the same size clothes before I lost the weight.

    Andrea, your brain will catch up with your new body. When we think of ourselves as one thing, it's very hard to change our thinking. They say each habit takes at least 21 days to forge. Maybe you should look in the mirror each day and affirm that YES, you are in a size 8. For at least 21 days. Congratulations - you've done an amazing job!

    emoticon Ah, haven't you just found a great big truth there! Our minds create our worlds. You are so smart, IMO, to turn your mind to a Higher Truth instead of those whispers from the Evil Inclination.

emoticon No matter what your body weight or circumstances, you are a beautiful and beloved daughter of God. When those negative thoughts come up, tell them that. Live in the Love and the rest will fall into place!

emoticon You've helped me so much through a dark time by reminding me the world is bigger than my little ego. I hope I'm just giving you back some of your spark you've generously shared and not sounding like a blowhard.

emoticon AND... I want to acknowledge the determination and effort it took to make your amazing transformation! You look MAHvelous, dahling!

    I hear you on this one! I think this is a problem, because it does take a long time for the mind to catch up. But..it does...eventually. Your mind will come around!! And I agree with Zella - revel in the things you can DO now, and forget about how your mind makes you feel. Seems counter-intuitive, but I think she's got the right idea.

    Wow someone has the same feelings as me. I'm going through the same thing, still look at myself down form a 20 to a 10 and still see that 20. People ask me as like you how much more are you going to lose? Good question, lol. I added you as a friend. Good minds think alike emoticon Best of luck on your journey.

    It will happen! I remember when I got to goal (I'm working my way back there now!) that I was more impressed by the things I could do rather than just how I felt. Running to catch the train - no problem, bending over to pick things up on the floor was easier, etc. Saying thank you, Lord, every step of the way!

    2 years sounds about right, from what I've read, unfortunately, but you will adapt. And you look great! Congratulations on all your hard work--it's paid off.

    Long ago after I had lost a bunch of weight, I said the same thing to my therapist. She said it can actually take your mind you to two years to get in line with what you're busy looks like. So how long ago was it that you reached a size 8? It may be a few more months unfortunately. But it will get there
Btw, awesome job!
