Discouraged, but ....

Saturday, June 25, 2011

I'm getting discouraged and disgusted with myself. I had wanted to lose a pound a week this month ... but it seems to be more like I lose a pound - gain 1/2 or more. I haven't been eating in my calorie range as I should this week (duh!). I beat myself up about it, and then I start getting down on myself about other things in my life and all my other flaws.

Oh well, I have to quilt today. I need to purchase batting, fabric for the binding (I want to bind the quilt in pink) and thread. Maybe quilting today will perk me up. It definitely will keep food out of my mouth!

    I'm losing even slower than you are, but my husband keeps telling me, "Hey! at least you are moving (albeit crawling) in the right direction. Don't be discouraged. You are probably helping your body in ways that the scale isn't showing. How you feel mentally and physically does matter. You matter. Celebrate every little victory and Keep going!

    By all means...keep your hands busy with your quilting and let your mind relax and enjoy the process!!

    Cherish the progress you've made and look for the positives in your life, instead of dwelling on what you haven't accomplished.

    Ask yourself this: Does beating myself up about not sticking to my plan do any good? If it just leads to other negative thinking, GET RID OF THOSE THOUGHTS!!! You deserve to feel good about yourself, and from the sounds of it, you are learning what works and what doesn't work. Just concentrate on the What Works part, avoid the What Doesn't Work part, and things should fall in place. And you're right - it's hard to eat while you're quilting!
