First let me say that I completely respect nice people - but I don't listen to them. I don't want cheerleaders. I want the ******es and the a**holes to come give me a good verbal beating. I want to hate you and love you at the same time for speaking the truth. That's what works for me. Nice folks feel free to post too - I'll try to "open my ears" as I tell my kids.
Here it goes.
1. Protein Bars - I'm addicted. I'm a slow loser and HATE that I can't have a single "treat", but I can't. I am almost out of the protein bars and I really want to go buy more, but they just aren't helping me lose weight. Damnit. It's decision time. Keep the protein bars and try to control the amount I have per day *laughs to self* or let them go and possibly cry a little - maybe curl up into a ball for awhile. They are my crack. My Precious!!!
2. I've been playing head games with myself about the 6 month post surgery mark that's quickly approaching. I think as a slow loser the whole "romance period" really messes with my head. I've sort of convinced myself that I won't lose after 6 months. I have allowed it to let me sabotage my own weightloss. I've literally been waiting for the hunger to come back (it hasn't) and I've made choices lately that I KNOW are because I'm setting myself up for failure just because I didn't reach my goal in 6 months. I would love to hear from anyone who reached to goal after 6 months, better yet after a year - because at the rate I'm losing , it will be over a year to get to goal. Am I right or wrong for thinking I'll fail after 6 months?
Day of Surgery
5 Months Out
LOL that's snarky enough, although I think you dialed it down a bit. Yeah, our conversation is what sparked this thread.
I just need the 6 mo date to get past. It's not helping that my man-child turns 14 next Monday.
Numbers are freaking me out this week.
