I find that I have got to the stage of being really happy and content with my achievements this year.
I feel I have dealt with so many issues I have been living with for many years. I feel I have sorted out my bad eating habits and changed them to good ones, I have more confidence than I have ever had before and I have even stopped trying to hide behind things.
Generally I would have always said that I was a happy person. But I think really I was good at showing my happy face while inside I wasn’t really happy with myself.
Now I feel I am happy inside and out. However, I know this may sound stupid, but I am not happy that I am happy!
People have told me lately that I now look normal. Some people have said that I don’t need to lose any more weight. I know though that I still have at least another 3 stone to lose.
Feeling happy and content with myself is hindering my motivation. Being told that I now look normal is not necessarily helping with the motivation either. The fact is that I am probably still classed by doctors as being obese.
It just goes to show how your emotions and how you feel can impact on your weight goals. My emotions and feelings contributed to me putting weight on, a change of heart and thinking has helped me lose weight (along with big changes in habits), and potentially becoming too content and happy emotionally could stop me losing more weight.
I am not asking for the issues to come back. I want to stay happy and content. I just feel I now have to look for my motivation from somewhere else instead.
Maybe it’s time I set myself some more goals – something that is out of reach now but with a little hard work and determination I could do it.
The question is what?
