A recent conversation caused me to have a bit of an epiphany. A friend was asking me about my weight loss, and I was bemoaning the fact that, since last September, my weight hasn’t changed much.
She said, “so, you’ve kept off a weight loss of 45 pounds for almost a year?”
I’d been focusing on the failure of not losing the weight I still want to lose, blind to the success of having maintained the loss of nearly 20% of my body weight.
I want to work on being a little more positive, a little easier on myself, and as quick to celebrate my successes as I am to beat myself up about my failures. Seems like a good goal.
