Stress and Disappointment
I am stressing myself out over this weight loss thing, and I'm not sure why. I've been weighing myself an inordinate number of times. I don't know if I'm magically expecting to be 50 pounds less....or just so afraid I'll fail that the daily weighings are reassuring....but I'm down a total of 16 pounds. Over the last four or five days though, I'm up four pounds...not really budging, although I haven't had a good weigh in in nearly a week...and I think I'm ovulating....but it bothers me. It also bothers me that I've lost 16 pounds and no one's noticed....My friend's baby is 13 pounds, and someone would surely notice if he was missing...am I that fat? I just hope I continue to lose, at a much slower pace...and that I can proverbially get over myself....and I'm glad my weight loss buddy is back in the game!
