"Slow down. BREATHE. Give yourself credit for what you've accomplished."
Part of my struggle is that I continue to beat myself up for not ever reaching goal. Guess what I just did? I just set my goal on MyFoodDiary.com to 2 lbs less than what I weigh now. You got it - I'm going to reach goal. But that's another story.
Because I never reached goal, I struggle with acknowledging what I accomplished: I lost almost 70 lbs. And for the most part, I have maintained that loss for almost 3 years. I've beaten the odds and it really is something for which I should be unconditionally proud. I'm working on that.
In the meantime, I'm going to start practicing daily acknowledgement of what I've done well that day. You'll see it in a side bar on here.
