Morning all, been busy the last little while with work and what not so haven't been posting but have been surfing here. Jumped on the scale against my better judgement I might add as my home WI is actually tomorrow, and seeing how it's week two of my losing cycle - meaning I seem to only register weight loss every second week - I was expecting the numbers to be down. Well nope, zip, zero, zilch, nada.
Hmmm. Thus starts the inner dialogue/conflict between reason and emotion.
Reason - You've lost 55 pound in 8 weeks - that's pretty darn good
Reason - You've gone down several pants and shirt sizes
Reason - You are averaging close to 7 pounds per week in losses
Reason - People have mentioned numerous times about your weight loss
Reason - You have not strayed off the diet once in 8 weeks
Reason - DW reports that my snoring is significantly reduced
Reason - After losing this much weight your body needs time to readjust
Reason - My weight loss while significant at first has to slow down
Reason - Two weeks without a loss is not a plateau never to be recovered
from - get a grip
Reason - You didn't get this size overnight you won't lose it overnight
Emotion - GOOD LORD THE SCALE HASN'T MOVED - ALL IS LOST
Emotion - That's it IP has stopped working I'm done
Emotion - All that sacrifice for nothing - shaking fist at the heavens
Emotion - I've hit the dreaded plateau it'll be weeks before I lose more
Emotion - I've gotta start exercising like a fool to get any change
Emotion - This is going to take forever - months, years, decades
Emotion - @$%@$&!#, !)"@$%$%, @#$@"$*
So that's the ongoing dialogue today. I'm confident reason will win out and I'll see what tomorrow brings. I'm sure of several things however - the scale will register either a loss or no change - the sun will rise and set - DW loves me and will support me no matter what - and life goes on.
Have a good day all.
