I am trying really hard to not think about the snow that may come tomorrow. Trying to focus on the green buds popping up all around me.
I weighed in yesterday and I lost 4lbs last week. I have spent the last 36 hours talking myself out of adding the word "ONLY" to that sentence. I only lost 4lbs last week. Ummmm 4lbs is awesome and there is I significant chance it will be a lasting change. So why "ONLY"? Why am I thinking about snow on a beautiful day?
Because my brain is a jerk. For some reason, be it nature or nurture my brain wants me to be sad and insecure. It wants me to doubt myself and think I'm not good enough. It wants me to say, "I could have tried harder, drank more water, exercised more, lost 10lbs" I'm learning that I have to stop those thoughts in their tracks.
I have to know that I shouldn't believe everything I think. I have to know that doing my best doesn't have to mean running myself to a mental breakdown. Sure I could have done those things but at the expense of what?
Today I'm taking the power back from my jerk brain and I'm shouting from the roof tops "I LOST 4LBS LAST WEEK, I DID MY BEST, AND I DESERVE TO BE PROUD ABOUT IT! "
