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.
