I always look at weeks that I lose any amount as a victory because it beats a gain but it is hard to keep going. I think to myself "I sacrificed all week for 1 lousy pound?!! Not sure that was worth it
On the flip side, if I had a good loss I used to --embarrassed to type this -- swing by McDonald's or pick up a pizza as a reward! How messed up is that?!! And no wonder those last 10 lbs. would keep coming back like a bad penny.
I am still trying to figure out how to reward myself for a good week that doesn't involve stuffing something in my face.
It took my 5 years to gain all this weight so if it takes me a few to get rid of it so be it. I have a lot of bad habits and negative self talk to change. I am more interested in completely changing the way I live as opposed to just losing weight.
