The weight loss mind games are difficult. Why does it always seem harder when you get close to a "decade" number or a milestone number? After reading MizFit today ("What the (bleep) do we know?"), I'm thinking that maybe even thinking that thought is leading to some sort of self-sabbotage. Not to be overly dramatic about it. *cough* Not me. ;-)
And then there are the superstitions. Mine seem to center around clothes. Am I finally achieving success because I got rid of the last of all my old clothes last summer? When do I "give up" my loose clothes? Did my buying slightly-too-tight pants to wear for Thanksgiving as a reminder to not overdo things cause me to bob around my halfway point vs. surging down the scale?
I must say, just writing that helped me realize how bizzaro this line of thinking can be! ;-) I have not ruled out the possibility that this is PMS-thinking and can be recognized as such and then gently let go.
What superstitions about weight loss do you have, if any? How do you overcome them?
