I’ve had so many people ask me, “do you feel smaller?” And every time I tell them the same thing… nope ! , but then again when I was heavier I didn’t feel bigger either. But what I see when I look down and what I see in a mirror are not the same thing . When I take a picture and people say, “wow, you’re so skinny” I always tell them that it’s an illusion, the camera makes me skinnier (or I have awesome posing skills)
I know this is emotional… so now I’m coming to terms with and learning how to lose my emotional fat.
I don’t know who this woman is… but I swear I’m gonna find her (not in a creepy stalker way)…I just want to say thank you for posting her journey were I could find it..
I have always said that weight loss has been the cheapest, yet the most devastatingly cathartic experience therapy I could get. And for weeks now I been saying that I have worked through my issues but the truth is like my weight loss goal I’m only half way there.
5 Things that tuned me in that I was STILL emotionally overweight
- Wearing and buying clothes that are two big. Just recently I purchased a 2X shirt thinking it would fit…until I was a badgered into taking it back and exchanging it for a L.
- Comparing this weight loss journey with my past… when clearly the last time didn’t work that well..(I gained it all back…and then some)
- Comparing my weight loss journey with others….not gonna lie, I’ve been super jealous of people pulling in double digits at weekly weigh-in and the most I loss is 2 or 3 pounds.
- Not celebrating my achievement… it’s a big deal for me that I’m losing weight…I should really stop telling people that it’s not
- Not being 100% honest with myself
Until next time
