Feel like I'm going to fail
I don't know why I feel like this, but I just don't feel like there's any way possible for me to ever be an average size person. I'm a month out and I've lost only 18 lbs since then. Idk, I just feel like I'm going to be a failure. And now I think I'm in the whole 3 week hold up/stall so that will make matters worse :( just having a rough evening.
It's just so hard not knowing if everything on the inside is ok. Like I want to be able to see my stomach so that I can make sure that my doctor did things right and that I'm doing everything right. I know that's just the control freak in me coming out and that my doctor did everything the way he is supposed to but I just have to trust and be patient. It's just so hard
Please look at my pictures because, like you, I many times really felt that I was going to fail at this too.
I was wrong, and so are you.
You are not going to fail. You're going to have stalls, and you may even be a "slow" loser as was I, but you hang in there, do what you're supposed to do, and you're going to lose the weight.
Now, repeat after me," I am not going to fail. I have this and I am going to be an average size person."
Welcome to the loser's bench!!!!
18 lbs in a month? How is that bad? No way any of us could have lost 18 lbs in a month without our surgeries! You know many people would be really jealous of you? LOL!
It is totally normal to become overwhelmed and feel like this may not work. Unless you set out to sabotage yourself...you will succeed! Hopefully you'll get a good night's sleep and feel better in the morning.
You've done great...you'll be fine. :o)
