The pressure of reaching goals.

Monday, November 25, 2013

Have you ever noticed similar in your weight loss process? It seems that whenever I am close from reaching goals, I'm putting on some weight.

As I was 2 lbs away from losing my first 20 lbs, I've put on +3.5 lbs. The week after I lost -5.3 lbs.

I was currently 7 lbs away and 3 weeks from my trip to Peru. I was hoping to reach my goal of losing 30 lbs before leaving. This week, I've put on +3.2 lbs.

Could it be that I don't withstand the pressure? As this ever happened to you?

    apparently, for me, it has something to do with not feeling I deserve success. So anytime I get close to a good goal, I too sabotage myself. I have worked on this issue and still am... soon I will see how much of an improvement I made.

    You deserve it!

    It's strange and I don't understand it but I know I do this too
    it's a mystery as to why
    perhaps the brain needs time to adjust to the idea of change

    Actually, yes.
    I was 3 lbs away of being in the 160's and I was all excited, but I started binging again 4 days ago and I haven't weighed myself since.

    That could be it! emoticon

    I always seem to have a setback and then finish with seconds to spare strong. Do you procrastinate?

    Yes, sometimes I self sabotage myself. It's like I have a fear of success or something.

    Yes, it usually takes me an extra week or two to reach a big goal - mostly because I manage to self-sabatoge myself. I know I could have reached my 5% and 10% goals earlier. I just need to self talk myself into making better choices.
