I have been having counselling to help me deal with many aspects of my life including my weight & food issues and among other things that have come out of it is a realisation that I need to give my self " room to move " within the final weight I choose but that I also need to decide on a marker weight that I will tell myself I will never go above again.
my counsellor suggested I pick 4 weights to work towards and use to help me they are as follows
Unhappy weight - a weight that once I pass it I promise myself I will never go above again
Acceptable Weight - a weight that I can go up-to when and if I have to such as illness or on holiday
Happy weight - The weight I would be very happy to be and where I think I could live at
Dream Weight - If I could really achieve my dream and get to a special weight it would be this weight.
Mine are as follows
Unhappy - 14st
Acceptable - 12 1/2st
Happy - 11 1/2st
Dream - 10st2lbs
I wanted to post this as I talked to another Mini about it and they told me what a great idea it would be to share this, I’ve also shared this with a couple of friends who are not doing WLS route and they have taken it to their hearts and have set their own goals along these lines.
Anyway thats my journey xxx
Unhappy weight 14st
Acceptable weight 12st
Happy Weight 11st 7 pounds
Dream Weight 11stone
