So I’m done with my temper tantrum from last week and was down a pound. That means one more to go! It’s still just weird to think about not thinking about losing weight.
I mean I’ll always have to be mindful of what I’m putting in my mouth and I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I will always need to track my food unless I want to go back up 70+ pounds. Yes as the title in my blog states I am a serial Weight Watcher and if you go from my very first (and highest) weight with Weight Watchers I’ve lost 79 pounds.
You do what works and that’s what works for me.
It’s funny when you lose a lot of weight. You get a lot of compliments of course and there are also a lot of things that can derail you if you let them.
When you are overweight you get treated a lot differently than when you are not. You are almost invisible when you are an overweight woman (and maybe man, sorry guys I can’t speak for you), and when all of a sudden you are not it can make you almost uncomfortable or have negative thoughts.
Like the other day – I was at the gas station and this young man jogged past me to open the door for me. It was a very nice gesture and I said thank you, but those thoughts entered my mind – he wouldn’t have done that 60 pounds ago.
This particular person very well could have, but in my experience that’s not the case. You can let things like that bother you, or you can just accept the nice gesture.
Having those thoughts or negative feelings will not change the way people are treated one way or the other. I had a revelation a few months ago, and it has totally changed the way I think of myself, other women, and how we treat each other.
