I must confess that some emotional aspects of this journey are hard to overcome. I have avoided the scales for nearly two weeks now. I'm not sure why, but I think I was "scared" to weigh as this time of the year is usually soooo bad for me. I found thoughts like these in my head: "Have you broken your pouch?" "You've not been journaling...you've probably gained weight like usual." "If you avoid the scale, you won't be disappointed."
I bit the bullet this morning and got on the scales. I have dropped 7.5# in 13 days! OVER CHRISTMAS EVEN!!! I knew I made good choices. I knew I hadn't eaten anything I couldn't/shouldn't, but the fear of those scales had me in a headlock!
I'm so glad I broke through that stupid head issue! Take that you nasty nasty piece of stinkin' thinkin!
"I praise you [God] because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." ~Psalm 139:14
