Do you ever have one of those days where you just "feel" fat? I'm having one of them today. Even though at the weigh-in yesterday, the scale said I was down 7 pounds (woo hoo!) I still feel fat today.
It really must be a mental thing because my clothes fit me fine, in fact, I think they even feel looser today than they did yesterday, but in my head, I "feel" fat.
There is really nothing I can do about this feeling except ride it out. It is hard to change my mind when I have something going on in there like the feeling that I feel fat.
I suppose it could be a physical thing, like maybe I am slightly bloated, but I don't feel bloated, I feel fat.
Even though my rings are falling off my fingers and my pants are nearly falling down, I still feel fat and that is why I am pretty sure this is something in my mind.
Out minds can play funny tricks on us especially when we are working hard on a goal. Maybe your goal isn't weight loss, but something else, like starting a new business. A lot of things can run through your mind then, too. Maybe your mind will tell you that you are a "failure" or "you can't do this" or "who are you trying to kid? You're not entrepreneur!" Whatever the recording in your head keeps pumping into your thoughts, that is kind of how we feel.
So today, I guess my "recording" is telling me that I "feel" fat even though the indications are all pointing to the fact that I am actually losing weight, inches and more.
When you are "feeling" a certain way, don't let that feeling overtake the good work you have been doing. Remember, it is just a feeling. It is just part of the old you rebelling against the new you that is emerging. Think of it like a butterfly breaking free of the crysallis (not sure how to spell it). There are probably moments of fear in that small beautiful creature as it struggles to come out of that cocoon. But it comes out the other side a new creature. We can too, but we can't let the "old" self overtake the new one.
Just a thought for today. Until tomorrow, be good to yourself and others!
