beating ourselves up
Friday, September 14, 2018
Today I went to the nutritionist for my weigh in. In thirty days I lost 11.5 pounds and 4.5 inches. Since March 29, I dropped 28.2 pounds and 15 inches.
I said that I could have done better. It is true, I could have. It is easy to to point at times that I did not follow my diet. Easy to point at times that I should have exercised more and didn't make the effort.
Why do we do this? Why is it that we can't just say, hey self good job. Why do we need to tear ourselves down? If some else were to talk to us like this, we would be so upset. Yet we are the bullies in this relationship. It is easy at a weigh in to say, I only lost a half a pound this week. But if every week you lost that loss, in a years time you could be 26 pounds down.
So to me and you, don't begrudge those half pound losses and keep moving forward. We will get there.
