We have had a lot of talks in the past few weeks about Christmas and how to cope with it and, quite frankly, I wasn't coping with the talk of Christmas and the pressure I felt, the pressure I had put on myself to continue losing over Christmas.
I had gain after gain and was so unhappy so I refocused. I stopped thinking about the fast approaching run away train called Christmas and started focusing on something else instead.
I thought back to the summer of 2014, not a great time for me personally but a great time for my weight loss. During that summer I wore a lovely pair of cropped jeans and I felt great in them. In the summer of 2015 the gap between the button and buttonhole on those jeans was a vast canyon and that upset me :(
So my focus changed from Christmas to summer 2016 when I really want to walk along the beach with those jeans on, and it worked!
This was the result the first week after I'd changed my thought process and I was so happy!
I'm weighing in tonight and I'm hoping for another good loss, a loss that will allow me to enjoy myself at Christmas but, more importantly, a loss that will get me in those jeans come the summer.
Remember - everyone is different therefore everyone's goals, thoughts, deadlines and focus should be different too. Find something that works for you.
