So now, the mind games and the questions have begun.
Q: Have I had a ‘good’ month
Q: I wonder if I’ve lost more than last month
Q: Did my Birthday Week really damage my chances of a good loss
Q: Although I’m going to have a decent net loss, I wonder how much more I could have lost if I’d have trained more/eaten better
Q: Shall I put a really big week in at the gym to bump up my net loss
Q: What am I going to do if it’s a really small loss
Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
You know what, it doesn’t matter how ‘sorted’ you feel with regard to your new lifestyle/new journey/new path, weight loss gremlins are never too far away, waiting to mess with your head.
So, this is my life for the next few days now. Fighting off the weight loss gremlins. Reaffirming new truths about new me. Reminding myself of my new thinking. Reminding myself of how far I’ve come and how different I am. Playing down the importance of ‘how many pounds I’ve lost’ in comparison to the bigger picture of ‘how many years living I’ve gained’ and I continue to gain through ‘healthier’ living choices.
I’m due to get weighed next week Wednesday. It’s gonna be a long week 🙂
If “I Can Do It…!” You can do it!!!!
