Letting the scale get the best of you
Wednesday, January 02, 2019
I had an increasing feeling of failure during the last week. The scale wasn’t moving and I felt myself feeling more and more defeated. I knew I was logging my food and counting calories correctly, but the scale wasn’t budging. I don’t like the way I was feeling (so funny I wrote failing and had to correct it). In anycase I also wasn’t going to the bathroom much at the same time. And then this morning BOOM, finally the scale is down 2 lbs. I knew I should have trusted that it would eventually show up, but it was hard. I have had so many failures to launch over the last several years that I have felt that I couldn’t lose weight. I am very dedicated to my program as I’m doing for autoimmune and health reasons that have become progressively worse over the last 3.5 years.
In summary I’d like to stop the negative self talk and just start to believe week over week my diet will work and I will see improvement on the scale and healthy inflammation levels.
