I have always found it peculiar that when I am nearly at some goal of mine that my first thought seems to be about messing it up. Tomorrow morning will be the first weigh-in after the beginning of the challenge and it will be an entire week of waiting for my stomach to growl before eating. I think subconsciously I want to have a good reason (one that is under my control) for not getting good news in the morning. I don't want to possibly face bad news when I think I deserve good news.
If I don't get good news in the morning I will be working on waiting for the growl AND more attention to portion control. I feel like if I have waited for the growl I am truly empty and have even burned some stored fat while waiting. I have had a food bar at my first growl of the day and a full meal at the second growl each day. That has been how each day has gone.
Don't I DESERVE to lose some weight? That's where we get ourselves into trouble I think. We set ourselves up for disappointment when we feel like we have done more right stuff than wrong stuff so the balance should be in our favor. We get into the business of what's "fair", what we "deserve", our "rights". Doesn't work that way does it?
Do you do this as well?
