I've lost 5 pounds.
But I don't feel much like celebrating.
Because what I am first doing is working on losing the weight I've gained in the last 6 months. I went nuts with food. I was eating anything and everything and in any quantity I wanted. I was completely ruled by food - and the greasier, sweeter, saltier, and more processed the better.
And when I lose the weight that I gained because I was being... lazy, self-indulgent, unaware... I don't feel like there is a whole lot there to celebrate.
I'm proud of myself. I'm very glad a friend asked me to partner with her so we can support each other. Because I needed a push, I needed something to get me out of that downward spiral that I was in. And I am making better choices most of the time.
And once I get back into the weight zone that I was in 6 months ago... then I will feel like I am actually back on track. And then I will start to really celebrate my losses, my successes.
Because I will have successes to celebrate!
