I am trying to process the emotional side of weight loss. I know the food and activity stuff but there is more to it than that - clearly or I'd be a different size and shape and my blood pressure would be lower!
One thing I hear was that people struggle to keep weight off because they don't like being the centre of attention.
I'm not so sure about that. I loved it when people would notice that I'd lost some weight or my new top or my clearer skin. I did get sick of having to talk about it ALL THE TIME though.
Perhaps I am more of a behind the scenes girl who likes acknowledgment but not the limelight.
Oh all right then, maybe it is true. So how do I get over it, how do I deal with the attention and not let it sabotage my efforts???
Maybe it's something I just have to get used to and come to love. I'll have to give it another try and let you know. Acknowledging the little achievements and not bashing the failures.
And speaking of acknowledging achievements ...
I worked today so I was not so tempted all day and had much better control of my eating - Yeah!!!
I did not eat anything after dinner - Yeah!!!
I only had one no calorie drink today - all the rest was water - Yeah!!!!
I did not eat any sweets today - Yeah!!! (see it can be done - you could even do it again! :-)
