Self-Sabotage – A learning curve

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Is this normal? Is anyone else addicted to the fight? I’d like break this cycle thoughts / suggestions?

I learned that when I get close to a goal like say 100 official WW # lost. I always resist it.

I behave in ways that are not consistent with my goals.

It’s not that I don’t want it. It’s that I am addicted to the negative feedback that makes me want to fight for it.

I like the fight, passion and energy that getting knocked down and coming back has to offer.

    Sure it's normal. You're more experienced at losing weight. It's easier to stay right here. Do what is required to push on through. YOU can do this! YOU are soooo worth the effort!

    Karen, I really don't know what to say, but I'll keep an eye on what works for you. What I can tell you is that there's not a single day that passes by without cravings of some kind. There lies my big problem. For me, it's a matter of self control or I will start gaining pounds any moment.

    Best wishes! emoticon

    Karen, It wouldn't hurt to go ahead and join the 'At Goal & Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance Team'. They would probably be able to help you through these last few pounds...that's part of their 'mission'.

    My advice is to stop thinking about the 100 pound goal, and just take one day at a time. Think of the 1 or 2 pounds you want to lose THIS week. When I was at that point in my weight loss, I was out of town and couldn't weigh for 3 weeks...so I just totally passed over the 100 pound mark somewhere along the way. Didn't hurt a bit! emoticon

    Good luck...YOU KNOW YOU CAN DO THIS!

    I am so proud of you, and I would just like to add to what Nell said with.....maintaining honestly is harder than losing the 100 pounds. You've got this, we are here cheering you on. emoticon

    Remember once you get to goal you get to maintain. It's the same fight, just done without the boost of seeing a number on a scale move and without the cheering extras. Be sure to come over to the At Goal Team on Spark, where we continue to cheer everyone on for....staying the same.
