I will do this...!

Thursday, February 20, 2014

emoticon I feel like I am so doing this!

emoticon Eating logically and strategically.
Delaying instant satisfaction and thinking through it for later gratification.
Using the emotions for motivation.
Diligently planning and tracking.
Getting in some treats without overindulging...staying near top of range.
Getting a little hungry but holding at top of range?!?!
Using my daily motivation board for mantras that instill core beliefs about my body and myself

emoticon Time for my weekly weigh in. Hope the scale is kind today. Trying not to let it get me down no matter what it says because I feel good and my clothes do too.

emoticon But can't drop that nagging feeling of never doing enough and just being satisfied for now. One reason being: not wanting to become complacent and
DOUBT- another is worry of what if I can't sustain this and
FEAR- what if this confidence shows a gain and
DOUBT - what if what I am doing is not enough for a loss because I don't feel like I can give anything up without feeling deprived!!!

emoticon e shall see! I cannot change what I already ate or how much exercise I did or did not do. Worrying about having to give something up or change something up is pure emotion that is not being used positively for motivation. So I am a work in progress. emoticon

After Note - I lost a pound this week! emoticon

    If you feel good in your clothes and know you are following your excellent steps to stay on track, you are being successful..no matter what the scale says. I like the way you say to use emotions for motivation! I hope the scale is kind to you also as you are working so hard on getting healthy! Like you say, you are a work in progress. You will find a way to continue and reach your goal.

    You ARE doing this: and you are experiencing the results, without any doubt at all. You feel good and your clothes do too. That's the clearest signal that what you are doing is "enough".
