This was using a different scale, at a different time, under different conditions so I'm not sure how it compares to last week, but I feel like I'm doing pretty well. I have more wiggle room in my clothes and I am starting to feel "thin" even though I'm not at goal yet.
There's also always the same old turmoil cropping up about whether my goal is really valid or not. I feel like I look good at that weight and I'm within the WW-approved range (barely) for my height. But a nasty little part of me thinks, hey, 155 is still a big number and people will think you're stupid for being happy there.
Let's get to the goal first and then maintain it for a while, is what I'm telling this nasty little voice. If I decide that I am ready to lose more after maintaining for a month or so, then fine.
I think this "sure you're close to goal but at goal you'll still be fat" voice is a sneaky variant of Lori's Phantom Phat Pain.
