Anybody who knows me, knows of the shitshow I call my life - 2018 edition.
2 months ago I was told I would require surgery in the next few months. I was hysterical and thought I would try everything I could think of to avoid surgery... including losing 5kg. However, as someone who is an emotional eater , this didn’t work out... I ate my stress and ended up gaining 4kg in a month!
I decided to stop setting so many goals and failing at them all, but rather focus on one thing and one thing only. Food. I have really been focusing on fuelling my body with the right things and not beating myself up if I indulge a little.. if I lose weight, amazing. If I don’t, I’ll look at changing my goals in a few weeks. For now, I’m concentrating on controlled eating.
Today I stepped on the scales and had lost 1.5kg since last Friday - I had to get weighed in prep for surgery admission.
I am choosing to celebrate this little win. Usually I would beat myself up because at the end of the day, I still gained 4kg instead of losing 5!! Tomorrow I might still do that, but today I am ok about it. I will continue to eat controlled food today, rather than stopping eating altogether or binging my feelings away.
