    Congratulations @SammyDee2015, moving in the right direction! One of the things I try to do is to speak the results I want. So if I'm down a couple of pounds, I'm saying "yes, that's the direction I'm on, and this will continue. I won't be surprised if I'm down another pound in a week." I'm speaking the truth and living what I'm speaking, and you'll be surprised at the results of this, which show the value of talking to ourselves rather than listening to ourselves :).

    Hi!

    November 25: 176.2. I'm happy that I was up .08 pounds on the very first day for several reasons: It's important to see that weight fluctuates on a daily basis, so we're after trends not one day's change. Also, an "up" day on the scale does not derail us; anybody who reaches their goal has numerous "up" days along the way. All is well.

    I just got back on the wagon with my weight loss recently (about 5 weeks ago) and learning patience has been important this time around. When I first started losing weight I was at 190 and lost 9 lbs in my first month. This time around I started significantly lower but honestly went into expecting to be able to get the same kind of results. My weight loss is slower but that’s because I’ve made so much progress and it’s healthier to lose it slowly so I’m trying to learn patience!

    Just stopping by to share a few thoughts of motivation:

    Celebrate what you used to fear!

    My wife and I did a lot of exercise yesterday, it was a beautiful sunny day here in Washington state. I noticed at around 4:00 PM my stomach was growling. My instant reaction was excitement and I said, "YES!" I told my wife that my stomach was growling and we high fived each other.

    Back when I was living in the rut of continuous overeating and refusing any exercise, I feared stomach growls (or any physical discomfort) and would make sure to eat long before I was hungry so as to avoid them. (Ironically, my increasing weight brought on much physical discomfort.)

    Now I am learning to celebrate what I used to fear. To rejoice in the physical discomfort of not stuffing myself and of exerting my body through exercise. It's been a long process, it's been difficult, it's been fulfilling.

    What do you fear when it comes to losing weight? Can you begin to celebrate it instead of fear it?

    Hi everybody. I lost 70 pounds in 2015 and have gained back 30. I'm nipping this in the bud and getting back on the wagon. My ultimate goal is 200 but this will definitely help me get started. Thanks for this. I weigh every morning. I'll start my countdown from my weigh in yesterday morning - 232.8

    What do you fear when it comes to losing weight? Can you begin to celebrate it instead of fear it?

    Kudos to you! The thing I fear the most is emotional eating - I tend to reach for food not only when I am sad/stressed but also when I am happy. I realized moderation is not the key for me especially with sweet treats. Pastries, cakes and certain cookies I can not resist when I am emotional. I don't buy/bring these home. Ice creams, chocolates and few types of cookies I can handle and I buy those to eat in moderation. I also found out challenges motivate me(thanks to you @mikejodyscf!) and keeps me on track.
