No Drama Zone
Tuesday, July 31, 2018
My first week I lost 6 pounds. Yay! Then I gained 4 pounds back as I struggled with my actions and attitudes, all within the same week. Major drama.
I was hating on myself while I was journaling and then realized, hey, I'm still down 2 pounds for my first week. That's a great step forward! 2 pounds was my original goal and I met it. I've lost enough weight over the years that I would think I'd remember these things, but I don't. It takes time.
Within one week or month there are perhaps lots of gains and losses but none of it matters, it's just the drama of the process. It's the overall data that matters. If I feel like I had a horrible month but the numbers show I lost 3 pounds total, then that is the only fact that matters. All the drama is stuff I blow up in my head. Any loss means I'm moving forward.
