My Weird Brain ... But a GREAT WEEKEND!

Monday, June 12, 2017

So, a few things happened over the weekend that make me think I might be slightly crazy. But for once in a good way? hahaha

1. The scale has been stuck for two+ weeks. Welcome to my world. But I got on the scale Saturday morning and it was miraculously down 1.5 pounds. WHAT? YAY! I try not to weigh myself every day because I'll just drive myself bonkers, but I got on the scale Sunday morning to see if that 1.5 pounds was just a fluke and ... IT WAS DOWN ANOTHER POUND. Whhhhhaaaaaaa? I swear my body should be studied because it's just not normal. But this makes for about a 3.5 pound loss in a month and I honestly don't think that's ever happened before. WHAT IS HAPPENING? I mean, I like it, but WHAT IS HAPPENING? And I got on the scale again this morning again to see if the 2.5 pounds was a fluke and it's holding strong. Oh, body, you so crazy.

2. I went shopping and it's clear I haven't quite come to terms with my new body. My default is to pick up an XL. Then many times I think, 'that looks kinda big, I might need the L.' And then I try on my pile of clothes and everything is too big because apparently these days I'm more inclined to Medium. My brain does not allow me to consider myself a 'medium' person. I am extra large! Except, I'm not. Similarly, I know I've been wearing size 12P pants for awhile now. But I saw a cute pair and picked them up in a 12P and honestly looked at them and thought, 'those look small. They must be mislabeled.' Then, upon verifying they are in fact labeled properly, I think, 'No way my ass will fit in there. These must run small. I'll get the 14P too.' And then inevitably the 12 fits, like the logical part of my brain knows it will, but the rest of me is very confused and amazed.

3. Apparently my feet are losing weight. It's finally hot here and I have now put on two pairs of older sandals and I need like 5 more holes in the straps because my feet are sliding around. Of all the places I need to lose weight, my feet are basically dead last on the list. Time for shoe shopping!

These are great problems to have and I am super thrilled about my new Mediums and 12s and so forth. But there's definitely something weird in my brain that hasn't caught up to this now 26 pound weight loss, and being literally the smallest I've been since elementary school.

    For several years after gaining weight, I had the opposite problem: I would pick up the medium, then cry when the sleeves pinched.

    Congratulations! A 3.5 pound loss must feel great -- especially with all the work you've been doing on the nutrition front. I still think about your 130+ grams of protein a day in amazement.

    It's not weird that your brain hasn't caught up. It's use to thinking one way. Keep looking in the mirror and at pictures and remind yourself how fit and healthy you look and feel.

    I hear you ton this. The scale can be utterly confusing sometime. Drives me crazy too. Great job on fitting into smaller clothes. Wow, medium, you are average size. Yay!
    Give me your tips for losing weight in my feet, lol. My husband says my balance is so good because my feet are as wide as they are long. He's so sweet.
    Can't wait to see what cute, smaller clothes you pick up when you go shopping.

    You are experiencing what is called a scatoma, where your brain still sees the unchanged you. Plastic surgeons report this is common among their patients who still see their old nose even though it has been changed. Hang in there for this too shall pass.

    Keep on Keeping on!

    Make today the greatest day of your life!
