No good reason

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

I was walking with my mom a couple days ago and she said, "wow, you're really losing weight."

I thanked her, and then confessed that I get worried that I will plateau. I get very nervous in the day or two before I weigh in that the scale won't show me what I want to see. It hasn't happened yet but for some reason, I feel like it's inevitable.

Which is stupid! If I convince myself it is inevitable, it's not much of a stretch to think that I could subconsciously sabotage myself and make choices that don't keep me on track.

And yes, I have read the articles and posts that say you can plateau even when you are doing everything right. I guess that's what I'm scared of most. Working hard and doing it all "right" just to be disappointed.


Why would I worry about something that hasn't happened and may not happen any time soon or at all?

So silly.

    It's a waste of time and emotion to worry about things that MIGHT happen. You are doing really well on your journey to healthfulness. Stick with what you're already doing and you will succeed!
    Just want to add that I do understand and have similar thoughts myself! But with the help and support of SP I know we will get there in the end.

    Definitely SILLY!!! But I understand at the same time. It never ceases to amaze me how much power the number on the scale has over me and my mood. I recognize that I am SO much more than just a number and that even when the scale doesn't cooperate I am doing more for my health than what some silly machine says. But it still stings! LOL

    But you are right - you can cross that bridge IF you ever get to it! (And yay to your mom noticing!!!!!)
