Wake up call for the Queen of Denial

Saturday, July 17, 2010

Side view of me in motion does not match my mental picture of myself (thank you strategically placed gym mirrors). I'm fully aware of the shape of things now--and it really ain't pretty.

    I feel your pain!!!!! I know exactly what you mean that when you see yourself in your head as one way & then REALLY see yourself in a mirror, it's like WHO IS THAT PERSON!? I'm with you completely. Well, All we can do is picture what we WANT to be and then do the work to get that picture into reality. At least that's how I'm having to look at it. Think this way, you didn't gain that weight overnight, so give yourself time to get back to a more fit you. It takes time, but with consistence we'll get there. emoticon

    Thanks for the blog! Have you read Eat for Health, which is Eat to Live modified to different levels for different people? I think you are doing awesome. You were on a treadmill after all!

    I try not to look at myself in the mirror at all, I don't recognize me at all. Maybe the Eat to Live thing isn't quite the program for you. But if you're tracking your food and putting in the exercise you will DEFINITELY drop the pounds and see your outsides start to match your insides.

    Mental images can hard and help us.... reality can harm or help us... it is what you make of it, and you seem ready to pick yourself up, and work it out!

    Is'nt it odd how much our mental image sometimes deviates from our actual one? So many people here say they only recognized their weight gain by seeing a picture of themselves. The great thing though is that at least you realized this on a treadmill- which means you are already kicking the a$$ of that mental image. :)
