acting childish..

Sunday, March 14, 2010

i realized something so silly and childish about myself. Whenever I dont lose weight or i even gain weight i act like a child and do my time of pouting and protest. Its ridiculous but i seem to always do it. I caught myself yesterday and just had to laugh. I was making a sandwich and since i was protesting "HELL YES I WANT MAYO AND CHEESE ILL SHOW ...them?" uhh there is no one to show..lol. Just myself. Way to go. Im not gonna exercise today darn it! Ok..the scale isnt gonna be moving down any faster now! This isnt the only time ive done this, but it IS the first time I realized how ridiculous it is that I do it. Will I be able to change this reaction in the future? I hope so but my immediate reaction when im feeling something other than positive is to eat! And frustration is one of those triggers. I even was telling myself that muscle weighs more than fat etc. but that doesnt help in the moment. Do i think i look good? yes. My clothes look good on me, which is why i did take new photos. The issue for me is how i look to myself without the clothes and with my goal bathing suit on. Its not pretty my friends lol. And pouting and throwing my own kind of "tantrum" isnt gonna help! In other news..
We had our family dinner last night that was cancelled last week. We ended up going to the same restaurant we WERE going to go to last time thank goodness and i got exactly as I planned. One chicken breast not two, and my veggies..delicious. I managed to avoid the fried onion blossom type thing the family ordered for the table and that felt good. Yesterday was a beyond beautiful day here and i loved it. Felt like a sneak peak to summer..its just around the corner..I gotta get movin and stop my protesting/pouting whatever you wanna call it! And if I dont lose again next week, ill have to remind myself to just keep on keepin on! Hope you all had a fantastic saturday and remembered to move your clocks forward! Love you ALL!

    LOL! I do the same thing! When I think I have had a bad day I just dont bother to go to the scale for a few hours. Otherwise I dont see the loss that I wanted to see and then I stand there pouting and march off to the kitchen thinking "Well if I am not going to lose weight from that then I may as well have that donut!!"

    When I have a bad day I hop on the computer and surf the net or lay down and cuddle with a book until the need to pout is gone and try to make the day a better day. Today I am still thinking about that donut though!

    This sounds just like my blog titled Awareness. Good for you for noticing the signs. That's the beginning of changing it.

    You can do it! I know you can!

    I love it when I can stick to a plan at a restaurant... It's especially tough when the people around you are giving into all the different fried temptations. It's awesome that you stuck to your healthy food choices! emoticon

    I so could have wrote this! I'm guilty of the same thing. It's silly, but it's what I've always done. I'm just now realizing that I'm making this so much harder on myself. It's hard to change but we just have to do it. It's great that you have come to this realization. You'll be able to move forward with your goals with success now. emoticon

    Don't we all act childish at times! Kuddos on realizing that the only person you hurt when you tantrum is yourself and the dreams that you have.
    Congratulations on dining out successfully! That is one area that I have yet to really master. Next time I go out to eat, I'll have to come back and reread your blog to remind myself how good it will feel to eat right for me and what I want!
