I know it's normal to have off days, and I know they pass, but I just wondered if anyone has ways of combatting feeling overwhelmed by how far you have to go to reach your goal.
I know my goal is shorter than a lot. I have 7.5 lbs to lose to get to my first goal. And after that, I think it'll be mostly toning.
Still, though, the last two days, strangely after a satisfactory weigh in at WW on Tuesday, I feel like I'm ploughing on and on and getting no where. Maybe I just need to relax and take a bath or something. I just feel a little blue today.
I know that I'm working hard, and it's only been 4 weeks. But somewhere in the back of my mind, I'm kinda convinced that I won't last, because whenever I tried to lose weight before, I failed.
I've never felt pretty or comfortable in my own skin. I'm that awkward in between size, where some would get irritated by my trying to lose weight, maintaining that I'm "fine as I am" and others would look at me and see the pudge and understand my desire for a flat tummy.
I won't lie, this, my most profound effort of all, to lose weight, has been spurned by a guy. I'm only human. I want to feel attractive. I want to be sought after. I want him to want me.
I'm only 18, and I know I have a lot to experience in life yet, but I don't want to spend university the same way I spent secondary school - feeling like the ugly duckling and not wanting to go out.
I just feel sometimes like I'll never get there.
