I haven't weighed-in for a couple of days, but I've been eating within my range for two weeks now. It feels good to be back on track.
HOWEVER, all this time, I've been trying not to get bummed about the re-gained weight. I tell myself that at least I didn't go up any clothing sizes and didn't regain ALL of my previously-lost weight.
Yesterday, a friend emailed me a couple of pics she took a couple of weeks ago of me and her puppy who is my god- daughter. (smiling) Honorary godmother. Okay, here's the thing...
At first I was just gonna delete the photos because I knew it wasn't going to be pretty. But I made myself face the music and opened them. It really did look worse than I expected, but my mind came up with excuses immediately.
My thought pattern went something like this - "The camera adds lbs." and "I'm sunken into the couch, kinda folded over which makes the body redistribute." etc.
When I'm standing upright, I've gotten many compliments that I look slim, so that's why those excuses (not reasons this time) came to mind. The photo drove home the fact that I need to lose these re-gained lbs pronto. Hate how I feel and, yes, how I looked.
Since that photo, I've already lost 9 lbs, so it's a good start. Wishing all a good day.
