Quick post! I’ll be back again to update on Sunday.
I’m up a pound this week, which is annoying but I’ve accepted that I’m sort of in a plateau. I’m choosing to do this Bitch Cakes-style and reframe the crap out of it.
I’m choosing to think of this back and forth, so close to goal, yet so far away as a way to practice maintenance. I’m still doing all my healthy things – eating right, getting lots of exercise and taking care of myself. It’s just not happening for me. Oh well. It could be worse. Bugging myself about it and drafting plans to get through it was not working. As I mentioned a week or so ago, I’m just going with the flow on these last pounds.
That’s part of my transition I think. I need to be getting my head around the idea that this is life. It’s real and present and it can’t be avoided. I don’t live in a bubble and I don’t think that any of you do either.
Whatever this is, I’m not flipping out about it anymore. It was driving me crazy to obsess over these last pounds and I’m just NOT DOING IT ANYMORE. They’ll come off. It’s just a matter of time.
I’m exhausted today – I took the night off and am headed up to have a hot bath and wear some kind of facemask. I’m going to curl up with a good book, ignore the pile of dishes and go to bed early. I’ve earned it.
