Weight Loss Support - I feel really fat today :(

I feel really fat today! I dont know what it is about today but I feel really bad about myself today :( I dont know why I feel so fat because I have been eating really good the past 3 days :(
Maybe TOM is coming soon. Ever since I weighed myself on monday and didnt lose anything, I have felt bad but I today I felt terrible. I felt like I had to keep my sweater on all day at school so that people wouldnt see my fat :(
Maybe it is because I knew I was going to allow myself to splurge for dinner today :(. I just feel really defeated today because I am uncomfortable in my body :(

What are you wearing? I'm wearing a "doesn't quite fit right" outfit and having a horrible fat day as a result. Change into something you love and feel confident in - that could make all the difference!

I wore some jeans that are too small today because it encourages me to not overeat. I only wear them on the days I have my desk job and I am sitting most of the day. I guess I shouldnt have worn them on a day like today

Yeah, avoid those types of clothes. Where something you love to help you feel happy and in control.
You can do it!

Don't splurge at dinner! :D Diet diet!

Yeah, I find if I wear clothes that are too small, it is a constant reminder to myself that I am fat. It ends up making me feel so bad about myself that by the end of the day, I just don't care anymore and I end up eating a bunch of junk. One of the first steps I took when I lost weight was to buy clothes that fit and I felt good in. Just this little step gave me the motivation to start exercising and eating right.

Krampus is absolutely right. When you are feeling bad the best thing to do is put on your favorite skinny-feeling outfit. And the worst thing to do is choose that day to splurge. It's just adding insult to injury at that point.
I'm sorry you were having a bad day. I know we have all been there. It's just a matter of pushing through it the best way you know how.
I hope you are feeling better today!! You are an absolutely beautiful girl and you deserve to feel that way too! ;)

just popping in to tell you i think you're beautiful.
do you particularly like weekly weigh-ins? they drive me crazy because i know i tend to fluctuate 1-2 lbs throughout the week before finally dropping a # or two, and that doesn't always happen on the same day of the week for me. it's very possible that you've lost and that it just didn't show on your weigh-in day. out of curiosity, i weigh myself 1-3 times per day (occasionally i skip a day, but only if i'm busy), and it helps me retain my sanity. i'm a lot less sensitive to whatever number i see on the scale that way. maybe it would be worth it to you to purchase a scale?
also, those tight pants are definitely what's making you feel a bit fluffy! but i say if they help you keep from snacking, it's worh it! ;) i have similar things that i do, and it really helps!
hope you see results on your next weigh-in!

Thanks so much for the compliments it made me feel so much better! :)

Do you take measurements? I started doing measurements and it really helps me when the scale is up. It's really amazing what seeing a 1/4 inch loss can do to your mood on yucky day. :)
