I went shopping today. Mainly because I had a few coupons that were too good to pass up, but I could also use a few things since some of my clothes are too big now. That is a good thing, but shopping while you are losing weight can be challenging!
I have a lot of weight to lose, so it's not cost effective to buy an entire wardrobe for each size. I purchased a pair of pants today in a smaller size than I expected. However, rather than being excited I was disgusted at my image in the dressing room mirror.
I was reminded of how far I have to go. I was also reminded of the many pounds that I have lost, regained, lost again, regained again. You know the drill.
This negative self talk could have easily ended with a binge. But it didn't!!!! It was hard, but I tried to turn the negative self talk into positive. I've been working hard, and the results show on the scale. Regardless of what weight I am, I am worth spending time on my appearance. I enjoy dressing fashionably, and I can do that as I'm losing weight. It's challenging, but I can do it.
I am worth it!!
