I lost 1.5 lbs. Why am I disappointed?
Friday, January 31, 2014
Well, lots of reasons. None of them are valid, I know, but they are in my brain nonetheless:
-I’m mad because I still have not taken off the weight that I put on over the holidays.
-I’m impatient because I want to be at my goal weight sooner and 1.5 lbs will not get me there.
-I’m annoyed because I have to do this weight loss thing again.
As I read this, the words jump off the page at me. I still have not internalized the lifestyle change, or the modifications to my mental approach that are required to be a success. So maybe that is my goal for the month of February:
-Forget weight loss for a month. (maybe I’ll put my scale in the closet)
-Continue to track my food every day.
-Eat healthy food, without processed anything.
-Keep up my exercise 5-6 days a week.
-Oh, and stop squawking about my ‘mad abouts’ and just focus on the positive things that I have been doing since the end of December. I can do this... February is only 28 days long.
