Fighting the Head Game and Winning!
Friday, May 06, 2011
I'm one more pound down. You know the saying, inch by inch...it's a cinch...yard by yard...it's very hard. This journey is definitely going inch by inch. This has been one of my toughest week's mentally. I've really been fighting the head game all week. I've been fighting discouraging thoughts mostly...thoughts of "You'll never make it"..."You won't lose any more weight"..."You're stuck here...might as well give it up." I don't know why they were so strong this week but I did not give in to them. I spent some time journaling my thoughts in the private journal here on Spark. That helped.
Whenever I write, I always try to be honest in the beginning of the writing...really say what's on/in my mind. Then, as I write, I try to reason through it and come up with a resolution. This really works for me.
Yesterday, it occurred to me...the only way to fail at this, is to quit. I'M NOT QUITTING!!!
DD from Wyoming is coming home in two weeks. Our city has city-wide garage sales that weekend and it's a big deal. People come from all over to go to the garage sales and traffic is a crawl to get in and out. She's going to come and walk around with her sister and do some shopping. Also, there is a baby shower that weekend that she wants to go to. I'm excited about having her home for 5 days..woo hoo!
Today is a Y weigh-in day, too. I think I will go there before work, do the weigh in, and get a protein shake. I should be down 1-1/2 lbs at the Y...since it's been 2 weeks in-between weigh ins for them. The girl that calls and does the reminders about the weigh in was so nice yesterday. She called and left me a message...This is a message for the new and improved Cathy. I thought that was cute. Encouragement is such a nice thing.
Hopefully, we will have a dry day at some point this weekend to cut the grass again. We've had so much rain. And the grass LOVES it. Hope you all have a great Mother's Day! Spark on!
