How I Turned My Thinking Around

Sunday, January 26, 2020

I don't really mope around much I am an upbeat person so i was a little upset with myself this morning and that is kind of out of character for me. I fast 3x a week and have been being bad lately and not fasting and eating high calorie foods so was not surprised that the scale was up again today. 167 on the scale today and I was so upset when I read that and than I got to thinking not to long ago I weighed 184 and would have been super happy to see the scale say 167. I am the Changing-turtle and have to remember a turtle moves slowly. I started this weight loss journey weighing 210. I cut out going out to eat twice a day, changed what ate, eating more veggies and fruit. And took up walking everywhere instead of getting rides. I lost weight and even with the tragedy in my life of my hubby falling and breaking his neck was able to keep off over 30 pound weight loss and than I took up fasting and more weight came off. The weight is coming off slowly with my fasting and than going off. I keep acting like a child thinking I can eat what ever I want. I know what to do for me what my nutritionist and doctor want me doing. fasting. I am under their care. I need to keep remembering weight that comes off slow and easy is the weight that will stay off.

    Awesome job, all around! After doing this for so long we sometimes lose sight of the big picture, the whole story, 210 to 167 is big! Maintaining through trying times is big! Getting back on track is bigger! Keep pushing! Excellent insights on your overall success! I sometimes get caught up in negative here and now. Thanks for the reminder!

    Remember to give yourself a little grace. Take it one day at a time. You can do get back to where you need to be.

    You HAVE accomplished a lot! I have been impressed for a long time. Many obesity doctors would be thrilled with your loss and maintenance. Bingeing is quite a common reaction to fasting (they hid this info) or fat loss in general, but when we know that the urges are just false warnings from our brains- we aren't REALLY starving, for goodness' sake-, we can manage them better. At least that's what I'm telling myself! See you on the boards.

    Gosh, I feel so similar. Hey, emoticon It is just that we give ourselves 'eating vacations' emoticon Now, back on track again. We are like in a see-saw, one day we are up and good, the other day down and naughty.
