Cyclical Gains

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

At this point I've hit 199 but have popped back up to 203 as of this morning. I know in my head it's cyclical, I know I'm in deficit each day so the weight will eventually come off. This has happened every month and I know it goes away and takes a few more pounds with it.

It's difficult to keep calm about it this month because it's back over 200. I was so excited to be under that number. I know I will be again, it's just difficult. I didn't have any chocolate or wine on Valentine's Day and there are at least 5 boxes of Girl Scout cookies in my pantry that I have not even smelled, much less eaten. I'm proud of the fact that I've showed I am stronger than wine, or chocolate, or cookies but there is a tiny voice inside that keeps saying, "Why bother? You were strong and it didn't matter. You might as well eat!" I won't, but talking about that voice takes away its power.

I have made great choices. I'm proud of that. My weight is just a number. It doesn't always reflect what I'm doing.

My head knows that. Now if I could convince my heart and soul!

    You say it so well! I know EXACTLY what you're talking about and I love how you put it -- and how "talking about that voice takes away its power."

    Congrats for making great choices, staying on your plan, and knowing that this time your head is right!

    Great stuff!!!!

    I feel for you & you keep telling yourself that it is not worth giving into "the voice". You're right , it is only a number. Walk away being proud of yourself that helps me plus, I tell myself that eating will not solve the problem. emoticon

    Hang in there. Those pounds will come off as fast as they arrived (plus more). Girl scout cookies...not a good thing to have in the house. I love frozen thin mints.

    Thanks for the goodie. My knee is doing better so I'm hoping to get back to my normal workout schedule soon.
