I think when in the past you've obsessed over weight loss, you’ve feared eating more, you’ve feared weight gain, that part of that mindset never really leaves you. Occasionally little triggers come up and you flash back to your old thoughts and attitudes.
My weight went up a lot this week, the biggest increase since I finished losing weight. I ate A LOT of food in Melbourne and although I don’t regret a single bite, it is logical that the scale went up. But I have had flashbacks to my old mindset this week, with my mind trying to convince me that weight gain is a scary thing 😪
So I’m posting this to bring me back to reality.
The reality is I worked my ass off for 7 MONTHS losing weight.
The reality is I am still down 10kg and that hard work isn’t undone overnight.
The reality is I am eating more right now than I have in 9 months.
The reality is I am loving my life, going out with friends and family to eat, smashing ice cream every night, and smashing my sessions in the gym.
The reality is that the number of calories I was eating at the end of my diet was not sustainable for my body or for my happiness. My body is happier with a few more kg on me. So I’ll take those extra few kgs thank you, and I’ll take the energy and social life and happiness that comes along with it 😇
N.B. I'm 173cm / 5'8
Weight in lbs: 165.4 / 140.1 / 143.4
