Firstly I find it very difficult to break past 77 kilos. It is one of those numbers that my body seems to sit very naturally at and doesn't want to budge. I am wondering if the fact I didn't lose any weight last week messed with my head more than I thought. Maybe I decided that since I didn't break 77 kilos (yet again) that I should just give up.
The other thing I do is that I start to feel better about myself. I start to think that this weight is OK and I just want to go out and enjoy life and stop being a party pooper who says no to champagne and cake. Obviously there is nothing wrong with having confidence and feeling good in your body, but I know I just want to lose a little more weight and I don't want to give up so close to the finish line.
I always wondered if self-sabotage is a real thing when it comes to dieting. All I want right now is to get to my goal weight, so why would I possibly sabotage that? I have no idea, but I do know that this happens more than enough times to just be a coincidence. Or I am just a REALLY slow learner.
Strangely enough I am not beating myself up too badly for my terrible eating this past weekend. I know that slip ups happen (and will always happen for me) and that is OK as long as I pick myself up and keep going the way I know I should.
So far, so good this week.
