Having trouble getting my head in the game...
Hello ladies, I've been at this for like over a year now. This of course being trying to lose weight. I was successful at first and dropped weight really quickly. And then I went to law school and started making excuses for my binges (I'm stressed, I'm too tired to cook something, all my friends were eating it, etc). And so I've been stuck yo-yoing from 150-160 for the past 8 months!
The problem is all mental I think. For instance, I was doing really well when I first started school. Like I got to my lowest weight of 145lbs. i mean I hadn't seen that number in over 8 years! But when I looked in the mirror I was so disappointed that I didn't look any smaller. And that's when I started cheating. The thing is that when I start to get lower numbers, when I get close to my goal weight I panick. It's like I'm worried that I'll reach the number and I won't look any different and nothing will have changed.
Has anyone else felt like this? How do I get over this mental thing? I've tried psyching myself up, avoiding the scale, etc. but it's like being overweight is the only thing i've ever been and I just can't see myself skinny. Does that make sense?
