Out Loud

I said it out loud to people last night.

I've lost 22.5 lbs. in 7 weeks.

Then I immediately said, "but I've still got, like 200 lbs. to go".

Which isn't true (but I'm not ready to discuss numbers yet).

Why can't I just celebrate the accomplishment and not undermine with a second statement like that?

Because it's true. And sometimes it feels unsurmountable.

And there you go.

You have so much to be proud of and it's okay to share it out loud. Seven weeks ago you probably didn't think you'd be where you are now. Just wait until seven more weeks go by!! I AM SO PROUD OF YOU and I love you!!

We are so used to using self-depracating humor..... if we make fun of ourselves or belittle ourselves first, it takes that ability away from others. It's a self-defense mechanism that you and I are both far too comfortable with, unfortunately. Twenty-two pounds is a huge accomplishment. So when you tell your friends how much you've lost, just for that moment.... who gives a crap how many more you have to go???

Thank you all so much!

Kristin - YES, 7 weeks ago I was excited & inspired but also thinking, "yeah, yeah, we'll see if I can actually do it this time".


Amen, Jamie. No one can deprecate me like me. And hell yeah (and it's 26 lbs now!) :D
