Have you ever had a random self sabatoging thought pop in your head followed by a "what the heck" thought? Well that was me today. I cheated and weighed myself and I was down 10 pounds for the week (I will not make it official until tmr which is the day I picked to be my weekly weigh in day) which is awesome right? Then why was my first thought "It's only 10 pounds"? Hence the what the heck! 10 pounds is awesome, it's probably too much. And it isn't something you can or should count on after the first or second week of weight loss. I know the first few weeks are potentially the largest weight loss weeks. I am excited believe me. I am happy the scale is going the right way, I'd even go as far as to say I'm proud of myself for sticking with it. Idk what it is but there is another part of me that says it's only a week and only 10 pounds. I know this is a journey and this is just one step among many. I KNOW these things. I am okay with these things really. So why is there this voice and how do I make it go away?
I took a "then" or "when I started" picture today. I am so motivated by ppl who post their then and now photos side by side and the progress and accomplishment is undeniable. I can only hope I get to motivate and inspire someone along this journey and one day have a now picture I can't deny.
It isn't the best but it will work until I buy a full length mirror for home.
