When I start to accept, I'll let you know!
I do the same thing!! I attribute both my successes and failures to other things!
I didn't gain weight, my clothes shrunk!
I didn't lose weight, my clothes stretched out!
I didn't gain weight, it's just water.
I didn't lose weight, my scale was just on the wrong side of the bathroom.
I didn't gain weight, my shoes have more mud on them.
I didn't lose weight, I just got a hair cut.
I hate that kind of thinking. I actually like to chart my weight loss, because I can't ignore a giant downward slope as large as my computer screen showing me that the slopes are far longer than the plateaus!
