So I just got home from the weekly Optifast meeting. I lost 3 pounds this week for a total of 13 pounds in the past 3 weeks! I was 283 this week and honestly, I was upset that I haven’t lost more this week, but overall 13 pounds in less than a moth is an awesome achievement. I have to keep focusing on the positive of this journey or else I get caught up in the cycle of self harming thoughts and depression. And we all know that leads to binging, which is the last thing I want!
I wanted to share something the Dietician said today. In the past if I “messed up” on my food plan, I would say oh well and eat crap the rest of the day. If you were driving on a freeway and missed your exit, you wouldn’t say oh well and just keep going, you would turn around!
This clicked something in me, I knew the concept, but hearing it in such a matter of fact way really helped me understand fully. That the process of going further and you have messed up, makes absolutely no sense!
Hope you all are doing well, Ill see you on Friday!!
