Discouraged and Amazed

Thursday, February 13, 2020

I woke up this AM with a heavy heart. I had the terrible feeling of failure. I decided I wouldn't weigh myself. I couldn't face being confronted by my failure. I slept some more in my recliner...and when I woke, I went into the bathroom and I thought..."well, let me just check the scale.' and i breathed a prayer to God, "Please don't let me weigh more than yesterday." (195) I stepped up and waited for the numbers to settle...192.6!! REALLY?? How can that be? I give up trying to understand my body or this machine. It is not tied to any kind of logic. But for today, I will accept its gift.

    I’m trying to get my affirmations from SP not the stingy, heartless beastie on the bathroom floor. You are doing great. Don’t listen to your negative thoughts. Believe in the process not the number results.

    BTW, Happy Valentines Day.

    A body has a mind of its own. 🥴. Sometimes you have to just listen to it. Please don't give up and don't let the scales rule your mind. It will drive you crazy😵. Blessings for a wonderful day 👍🙏

    Your weight will go up and down during this process. Don't beat yourself up. You could do everything right and it could go up. Human bodies are complex factories.
