Pobody’s nerfect

Today marks two months since surgery. To be perfectly honest, I have been dreading the self imposed weigh in.

A few not so flattering things you should know about me:

  • I am a perfectionist.
  • I am my own worst critic.
  • I am competitive. (Pat will not play board games with me!)

By going public about my surgery, I have to face these flaws head on. I know am responsible only to myself, but I do feel pressure to make everyone proud.

The end of month was a bit of a whirlwind and I had convinced myself that I probably didn’t lose much.

Tonight, I weighed myself. This past month, I lost -14 lbs. I lost 48 lbs in the past 2.5 months. And instead of being ecstatic, I thought “Is 14 lbs for the month enough? Maybe I should wait until I lose 50 lbs.”

Then I realized: THIS IS WHY I CAN ONLY WEIGH MYSELF ONCE MONTHLY. 14 lbs is better than good enough. 48 lbs is two toddlers! Also, who the heck am I trying to beat? Other people who have had sleeve surgery? 🤣

Beep beep. I need to learn to get out of my own way.
