Do I #Believe?January 06, 2012
Yesterday was my Weight Watchers meeting. To get the nitty gritty out of the way, I’m up 1 pound total over the “2 weeks of holidays”. My goal was to basically maintain. I am ok with being up 1 pound after those 2 weeks. If I wasn’t doing Weight Watchers I know I would have easily been up 5 pounds. WIN!
I was asked… do I believe I can do this, this year? Do I believe that I can lose 40 pounds and get back to my goal weight? And I do… I really do, but it is hard. This time is harder for me. I’m trying to quantify why losing 40 pounds should be harder than losing 115. It was suggested that maybe part of it is that I’ve told myself it is going to be harder. True… I think there is definitely something to that. But I also know that this time my motivation is different – my biological clock is no longer ticking. I can be leisurely about this if I want to. This time is about me reclaiming myself, whereas before my external driver was about having a healthy pregnancy.
