No Despair Allowed

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Today I weighed 212 exactly. Yesterday I weighed 212 point something....but I don't remember what. If it was .9 then that is an acceptable weight loss for one day....but I really don't recall what the fraction was. I'm disgusted with myself because three or four days ago I weighed 211.?? I think it was like 211.8 or 9. Then I went up about a pound...and now I'm back to that point. OK...so maybe it is not so terrible as it feels. I've just kind of gotten stuck at this weight a little bit. I will not give up and toss the diet aside....wait and see what tomorrow brings. DO NOT DESPAIR.

I have to remember that the goal of this diet really is good health more than it is weight loss. The weight loss will come. yes it will. But the important thing to recall is that I am doing good things for my body. I am preventing and curing disease. And I should feel good about that. Yes, I do. I must hold on to that feeling...and not get caught up in chasing fractions on the scale. Give it time and I will eventually weigh what I should. The other thing to remember is that this diet will save my husband's life. And that certainly is more important than my weight at the moment.

For now I have to get into the shower because I'm going grocery shopping this morning and then to Bible Study later on.

an additional note : I think now is the time when I should start weighing weekly or possibly twice a week. It looks like my initial weightloss has slowed and now the scale is only going to prove to be a frustration rather than a help.

    Good plan Cynthia. A diet that saves your husband's life will save yours as well. It should be on the same page for sure.. Take it one day at a time, do the best you can each time and don't sweat the setbacks, everyone has them. As long as you are going two steps forward and only one back.
    You can do this!

    It is so hard to remember that focus sometimes - good health first. We always want to see the numbers on that flat machine on the floor give us something different than it does. They seem stuck, and we feel that way too. Right now, I am focusing on eating good things, and not bad, and moving what I can when I can. One baby step at a time, Cynthia. We can do it.

    The answer is not always in the numbers. Look at the other changes you are seeing. Do you feel better? Do your clothes fit better? Do you have more endurance? These are all signs your body is making changes. The weight will come off but it may take a while to show in the numbers. Look to the other signs and celebrate them.

    Keep on pushing, you can do it!
