Losing Weight While You're Losing Your Mind

Losing Weight While You're Losing Your Mind

We are ALL coping with a situation that we don't have a ton of control over (besides staying home, practicing social distancing, and washing your hands).  My Weigh In I'm up 4 lbs. On March 12th I was 221.8 and today I'm at 225.8. I'm up four...

My Weigh In

I'm up 4 lbs. On March 12th I was 221.8 and today I'm at
225.8. I'm up four pounds. The weird part is I'm not sure why. There are some factors:

  • My fridge is packed now where I use to have it empty and eat more fresh fruit. 
  • I bought "snacks" like pudding and yogurt which I have a very hard time eating "just one." 
  • I've not been getting as much sleep

So Now What?

I need to get a better understanding of why I do what I do, and why I think what I think. I'm going to dip my toe into meditation (which I've always felt is "woo-woo" and see if I can't get a better understanding as I practice "awareness." 

I'm going to check out Mindfulness for Beginners

Biggest Loser Wrap Up

The finale is this week. Their last episode had a great part where they looked at where they stared and where they were now. There was one great point by a trainer. You should avoid saying:

I would be happy if I could get to (target weight)

They point out that you need to be content at whatever weight you are as getting to a target weight may make you proud, but it may not make you happy as there will always be another trial, there will be other hurdles. 

What's Wrong with Me?

It's easy to fall into this line of thinking. Instead of focusing on what is wrong with you, focus on the things you are doing right. You are:

  • Kind
  • Loving
  • Compassionate
  • Caring
  • Generous

So while there may be room for improvement, there are some areas that you are just fine in.
