Can You Relate to This???
Wednesday, December 02, 2015
I should feel happy and motivated. I have lost 17.0 pounds so far. I am not struggling, for the first time in years, to eat less and make good choices. But I don't feel like I can take any pride in my success so far.
Why? Because I currently weigh 250.4. Because 250-255 was my OLD (as in just last year) high weight that I got back down to 235 from. Because 235 was my old, old high weight that I would work back down from periodically. Because I am the f@#$%^g statistic that loses weight, and then gains back MORE, over and over again. So I don't think i will begin to feel any sense of true accomplishment until I break below 230. Then maybe, just maybe, I can feel like I've made progress.
