I lost 1.5 lbs. Why am I disappointed?

Friday, January 31, 2014

Well, lots of reasons. None of them are valid, I know, but they are in my brain nonetheless:
-I知 mad because I still have not taken off the weight that I put on over the holidays.
-I知 impatient because I want to be at my goal weight sooner and 1.5 lbs will not get me there.
-I知 annoyed because I have to do this weight loss thing again.
As I read this, the words jump off the page at me. I still have not internalized the lifestyle change, or the modifications to my mental approach that are required to be a success. So maybe that is my goal for the month of February:
-Forget weight loss for a month. (maybe I値l put my scale in the closet)
-Continue to track my food every day.
-Eat healthy food, without processed anything.
-Keep up my exercise 5-6 days a week.
-Oh, and stop squawking about my 僧ad abouts and just focus on the positive things that I have been doing since the end of December. I can do this... February is only 28 days long.

    Glad you're taking the focus off the scale, if it makes you feel disappointed. I weigh only quarterly now, but I'm committed to my eating habits.

I don't think I've ever gone a month without something processed, but I count all flour products, oils, butter, cheese, and yogurt as processed. But certainly much less than I did four years ago and less than the average American bear. I'm content with the content!

    I understand all of your points and have been there at times. However, I remind myself that it could be worse. I could have gained a lot more and not had SP to return to. Have a fun weekend.
