I had a talk w my WW leader Linda this morning. I have been hovering 2.5-3 pounds above my goal weight. I said her "maintenance is hard".
And she followed up with is it really? She pointed out that when I was GAINING weight, having to buy new clothes and hating what you see in the mirror is hard. Sneaking food or hating yourself for demolishing a whole chocolate cake is hard. Being unhappy with your life is hard.
So really, is this that hard in the big picture?
She said I should remind myself what I have done that's cool since I lost weight. Four words for that. I am a marathoner. (running a marathon is hard!! :-) )
I needed a reality check. This isn't hard. I know how to do this. In reality I have been maintaining for two months, I just have been maintaining a weight that is three pound too high.
How about a small goal? Or a few small goals? I want to loose one pound this week. How will I get there? Tracking, Accurately. Drinking water when I get an urge to snack.
Those are my goals. This is not hard. I know how to do this. I know how to freaking do this. Not feeling happy with Myself or my goals is hard. This is not.
