Head games

Saturday, July 19, 2014

let me tell you how my brain works. in the past I would weigh myself every week when I was attempting to lose weight. if I had a weight loss, I would be so excited and proud but in the back of my mind I would think " yeaaaah! you lost 5 lbs!" " now you can get some ben and jerry's icecream and it wont hurt you cause your 5 lbs lighter than last week" and I would eat that icecream.. emoticon .then have the nerve to feel bad about it because I knew it wasn't right.This time around, im not even going to weigh myself. im just going to do what I know is right and stay consistant. maby in a month or so I will but right now im to fragile and new to this journey to set myself up for those silly mind games I play with myself emoticon

    Welcome to SparkPeople. We are all here for the same reason, no matter what our personal story is. We are here to help each other to get to that healthy point we want to be in our lives. It is not going to be easy, but it is attainable. I have found that changing things up is the way to start weight loss. Make small goals and they will lead to big successes. This is a lifestyle change you are about to embark on. You shouldn't deprive yourself of anything. In the beginning if you are like me, then yes no Ben & Jerry's until you reach a goal, and then its only one serving to reward yourself. What I have done is set goals of losing 5% and when I do, I set another goal. I have reached 5 goals so far, so I am ecstatic. It can work, but you have to invest in it. I think you are started to realize what you need to do. Welcome and get active on this site. emoticon
