Self Sabotage

Monday, December 05, 2011

I am going to maintain my remarkable weight loss. I am an extraordinary woman who lost over 150 pounds at the age of 63. I have allowed the reading I do to make me think regaining the weight is inevitable. I am done with that kind of thinking and that kind of reading.

This is what I know: I did something extraordinary to lose the weight, and I can do something to maintain my loss.

Because I am an extraordinary woman who will not allow faulty thinking to sabotage me.

    Thank you for your comments. Actually I am doing okay with remaining "extraordinary" in maintaining my "extraordinary" weight loss. Just returned from China where I ate a lot of fabulous food, and I am weighing what I weighed when I left. I guess the bump up in food intake was offset by the effort of climbing the Great Wall in Beijing, the steps to the Potala Palace in Tibet, and all that other toting and walking and climbing and moving.

    Extraordinary = Phenomenal in Maya Angelou's poem. This brief blog gave me a much needed boost.

    Just passing by , wondering how you are doing this summer.

    Just to let you know that quite a few people do manage to not regain the weight.
    There's one big group of people who have lost at least 60+ lbs and kept it all off for several years. they've signed up with the National Weight Control Registry at

    http://www.nwcr.ws/ and they are role models for us all, evidently.

    Good luck with everything!

    regards, annrose126

    Yes, Merlin! Yes, yes, YES! So happy to hear you saying this - this is something WE know (and have always known) to be true about you, but your own knowledge of this fact is what makes the difference.
