I know that over-analyzing my day or even my week isn’t going to be effective for me. My weight fluctuates too drastically over a short period, and I can never seem to pinpoint why. So, I decided that on a quarterly basis, I’m going to put in my thoughts on the past three months.
Obviously, this was my first quarter doing this whole thing. I’ll say that it’s not what I expected. I honestly said that I was okay losing just 0.5 pounds per week on average, but when it came down to it, I think I secretly was expecting to lose 2 pounds per week with no problems whatsoever. I’ll say that I still get disappointed when I don’t lose that much, but I’ve come to terms with it and I no longer want to throw the scale out the window on Fridays. That’s growth, right?
I definitely feel better about myself. I don’t have to suck in when I put my pants on, and they’re often way too big by the end of the day. The next size down is still too snug (they say 20 pounds equals a size), but I feel like I’m coming to a point where I’ll be in the next size soon.
I feel good about what I wear again, and I feel confident. That’s important. I think the confidence I’m feeling will help me move towards more loss. I honestly believe that you can’t lose weight until you accept who you are.
I’m hoping I can paste my weight-loss chart for the last quarter in here. There are a lot of ups and downs, but the main trend of the graph is downward movement, and that’s terriffic.
