I know that frustration is part of WLS. For some it's the wait, for others, the prep, or the plateaus or trying to find a protein drink that won't gag you. So I started thinking about what I do to deal with frustration. These work for me, Take what fits and leave the rest.
1. I remind myself that I'm not "regional director of the universe" and that I don't get whatever in my time frame. In fact, my time frame may not be the best one even if I think it is.
2. There is something to be learned in every situation if I am open to learning.
3. What I have today is sufficient for today.
4. "It's a mark of leadership to adjust". This was the motto at a camp I attended as a teen. I didn't like it then but now I realize how right it is.
5."No one can make you feel inferior without your consent" Eleanor Roosevelt. I love this statement and it applies to my weight, my appearance and my personality. It took me a long while to truly believe this but it is so important!
That's probably enough for today. At least it will give you thoughts to "chew on". Be nice to yourself!
