Two weeks later…

The number on the scale still says 189.2. I won’t give up, but it is frustrating to scale back on portions, snacks, and soda and not see a difference. Hopefully soon I will start being able to make bigger changes that will result in a healthier me. It hasn’t been an easy two weeks emotionally. I’m all over the place. I tend to regress what I’m feeling, but sometimes, I can’t even tell what I’m feeling and why I might be feeling a particular way. Today, I’m exhausted yet extremely antsy. It’s like ADHD and I’m like one, two, pancake, bingo! My mind races. A lot. So many thoughts, questions, and no answers and no way to talk it through. Maybe even if I don’t reach for food every time I struggle, I’m still reaching for it too much. Trying to figure it all out is complex. I have a lot of habits I need to work on. Here’s hoping to progress in the next two weeks.

  1. The scale can be frustrating. You can do a lot of stuff right and if that #!@x* needle doesn’t move it feels like it was for nothing. Maybe trying to keep track of the things you did accomplish, like going for a walk or saying no to a snack would help prevent getting discouraged. I also recommend Stephen Guise’s mini habits approach (https://stephenguise.com/) if you have a lot of habits to work on.
    Hang in there, and good luck!

    1. Thank you. That is really good advice. Celebrate the positive changes and not focus on the negative, as in the scale not budging.
