60 lbs... GONE!

I had to really get my "game" on to get these last few lbs off. It was a good reminder to me, that I REALLY need to watch what I put in my mouth.

Been dealing alot lately with the emotional part of why I have been over weight.

Found myself saying things like:

* I deserve to eat this
* I am tired... and I need this for energy
* I am sad... I need this to be happy
* I am emotionally drained... I need this to feel better
* O'well, I just won't lose any weight today
* This is a special occasion....

Ah... you see where I am going with this? I had to put my big girl panties on and decide, that enough was enough.

I also went and bought a book called The Beck Diet Solution and I am going through the, step by step process to "think like a thin person." (I'll keep you posted on how that goes)

I am six months into this whole band thing and me and Mrs. Band have worked out a lot of our kinks. Now it's time for me to work out the "kinks" in my head.

I'll be posting pics soon... : )

Gilly said...

Fantastic!!! Those head kinks are the toughest ones! Nine months into this thing, and I'm still working out mine! Good luck!

Linda said...

Congrats! That's amazing progress. I'm still battling the head issues.

60 in 6! Heather, that's terrific! I think head issues take longer than real pounds. Actually, I think even thin folks deal with head-food issues, they just have the genetics & physiology for their bodies to deal with them better.

Congrats on being minus 60! I feel like the head stuff never goes away -- it's a constant struggle!
