When you gain
it, but when you lose
1 lb it feels like an oz?
Ugh, I'm just being pessimistic. But really, when I get rolling and the pounds start coming off its like my nose is pressed so hard to the grindstone that I barely notice...I'm excited, of course....Its a WHOLE POUND! But I'm also pretty focused so it doesn't hit me as much as it probably should.
When I gain a pound though...I feel like a giant elephant.
I did bad this weekend and took my eye off the prize for just a moment..and BAM! A pound gained back. I physically feel so much bigger.
I know its just a pound, and that I can get it back off in a day or two...but I feel so much bigger than I did last week. Last week I was started to feel kind of slimmed down, my pants were starting to get looser, my tummy felt smaller...
Today I feel swollen and bloated and every bit as fat as I did 15 lbs ago. I know that part of that is my body image issues (I know I have body issues...but its hard not to after being fat, at the very lowest weight chubby, since my age hit double digits.), but I really do think that there's more mass in a pound gained than in a pound lost.
Anyway...I guess I just needed to complain. I'm having a pretty rotten day and I've just been in a foul mood. Its pretty out of character for me to be in a slump, but I'm letting myself slump because...well, everybody needs to feel sorry for themselves once in a while. Now I just need to snap out of it and get back on track.
Gah. Thanks for listening.
If you made it through the whole rant, you get a chocolate! No calories!!!
