I know you have a podcast about the idea of being comfortable with the weight loss. I’ve lost 15lb since joining SCS 4 months ago (from 160lb to 145lb), but then stalled and fluctuated for the past few weeks. Two days ago, due to outside circumstances, I wasn’t at home to snack like I usually do in the evening, so I really stuck to my eating plan for a change (2 meals).
The next morning I was down 2lbs, which is just 3 pounds away from my pre-baby weight. I just kept thinking it is a fluke and found myself rejecting the idea that this is my new weight.
Last night I went back to snacking in the evening and was up 1 pound this morning. I’m working on changing those thoughts, and I have plenty of proof that my weight it a reflection of what I eat. I just always find it helpful to get feedback through this forum.
C: Lost 2 lbs day before yesterday
T: I’ve finally gotten out of my slump, but it probably won’t last.
A: Snack and avoid my feelings
R: Gain back one of those pounds
C: Lost 2 lbs the day before yesterday
T: If I stick with my eating plan, I lose weight
F: In control
A: Don’t snack (I’m not sure I believe I’ll not snack – how do I change this?)
R: Continue to lose weight
I don’t think I’ve shown myself enough evidence that I can resist the snacking yet. I know if I do my thought work in the evening, things go much better and I deal with my emotions, but sometimes I just want to relax on the couch and watch a tv show. That tends to lead to snacking. I also think I’m worried about what will happen when I get to my goal weight.
Thanks so much!
