I’ll have some turkey, with a side of Insecurity…
The holiday season is a joyful time for some and a stressful time for many.
There are external pressures and expectations around this time of year.
There are interactions with those that you have not seen in a long time. Whether or not they bring up your weight loss (or lack thereof), you are thinking about it.
How am I going to handle eating at parties?
How can I stay on protocol with all of these unknowns in my plans?
How am I still this fat? I swore to myself that by next Christmas, I would have lost it all… and here I am. I have spent a year losing the same 10 pounds over and over.
Why did she just ask me what diet I’m on now? What is that supposed to mean?
I could go on and on… our insecurities blossom when our defenses are down.
It is time to stop. Take a breath. Realize how truly far you have come this year. Maybe the scale doesn’t show it. But, you do.
Today, celebrate your successes. Leave your insecurities for your Thought Downloads later.
