Three Pounds Down and Still Not Happy

Friday, January 25, 2013

That's right, folks, I am three pounds down this week. Which is a great result, and a pound more than my basic 'goal' I hold of two pounds per week. So why am I still not satisfied? It isn't that I don't see it for the achievement it is, or even that I feel like I worked harder than that three pounds shows. It isn't even impatience.

No, normally I would be thrilled with this result, and I would be dancing around my place going 'WHEE!' a little piggy going all the way home. The reason I am not satisfied THIS week is that I am only a single pound away from having lost 50 lbs.

I know, it is stupid to be so hung up on getting to fifty pounds when I have so far to go. Plus, I will get there next week for sure. BUT I AM JUST SO CLOSE! I want that pound off to both hit the 50 lost, and also show an even number on the scale.

So when I say I am 'not happy', that isn't true. I am very happy, just not as happy as I would be with one more pound. Come on, body...just one week of four pounds lost and I will let you go back to your more comfortable pace like you want to. Just. One. More. Pound.

    3 lbs is great!!! And 49 pounds?! That's fantastic too! I can't wait til I get to the point where I can be 1 pound away from a 50 pound loss! I know those even numbers are enticing (I'm sitting at 9 instead of 10 lost right now myself), but don't let that overshadow the accomplishment that every pound is. 49 pounds lost has to happen on the way to 50, so it's special too! Be proud, and next week's weigh in will be here before you know it!!!!

    Just think - you have a week to plan a terrific goal reward for yourself! New shoes? New workout equipment? New lipstick? What will it be?
