I’m reporting Day 5 and still no movement on that tricksie scale. Ugh. I allowed myself to feel down about that for a few minutes then my husband talked me up again. He would be a great life coach and I’m lucky he’s mine and he’s free!
I have played tricks on my body several times this year by going on my plan and then stopping after less than 2 weeks. I think my body is taking revenge for all of those other times. My body doesn’t realize that I’m working in a stable environment now and we aren’t planning to move again anytime soon. That helps me focus on ME.
ME + NOW = I CAN DO THIS!
But as I was jamming out while walking on the treadmill, I realized that my body is like an abused child. I’ve been leading a very sedentary lifestyle and shoveling chips and ice cream in my mouth whenever I was sad, confused or lonely. See I don’t adapt very well at all to change. My life has been on a crazy roller coaster of change for about 3 years now. But things are settling down.
I can wish that I never allowed myself to gain back the 25 pounds I lost in 2011. I can wish that I hadn’t gained another 10 pounds on top of that. But that is the past and I’m in the present. At least I know I can do this since I did it before.
But I can still wish I could throw that dang scale out of this 3rd story window.
Progress report: Walked for 22 minutes today to some awesome music – mood happy.
