Losing, but frustrated....

This weight loss thing...it's a journey. But that doesn't mean we don't want it now. I am engulfed with this feeling as of late. I want it now.

I am losing, and losing pretty steadily, but it's not the 2 pounds that I have been hoping to see. I am averaging 1-1.5 pounds per week, which is still good. I am losing and that is all that matters, right? "Just keep telling yourself that, little (or big) lady."

I have gotten into the habit of weighing in every day. I did this the last time around with Weight Watchers and it seemed to help keep me on track. It is doing that same thing this time, but I think I am ending up more frustrated then if I would just stay off it until Wednesday. "Stay off that scale, little lady."

Booze is an obvious problem and with it being summer and all....well, that is a bad excuse, but we seem to be out a lot more than we are in the bitter months. "Stop drinking, little lady."

There is this 'person' in my head that keeps telling me to do these things, and I know they are the best for me and my diet, but putting them into action has been quite the challenge. It is not weigh-in day today, so I won't weigh in. I will journal EVERYTHING, even that glass of wine that I had at 9pm last night. And I will keep telling myself that I am losing and that is all that counts. I can't beat my self up anymore. However, beating up that 'person' in my head might not be such a bad idea......

It has taken me a long time to get past being obsessive about the scale... but you will better off if you can.

Weighing in once a week instead of everyday has helped a lot this time around. I am not seeing all those little ups and downs that happen on a daily basis. It helps me keep my mind focused on the big picture.

Lock the scale away until weigh-in day. You'll be glad you did.

What did you think of Transformers?

That voice!!! That voice tells me so many things that I invited another voice to counter it. It sounds like Grover monster is is really positive "Good job, keep it up."
Inviting voices to live in me head. Not as crazy as it sounds. I have a friend who invented a yelling little old Asian lady voice to keep her in line.

Stop drinking? Never! Every girl needs a good, strong cocktail now and then. What do you think flex points are for?
