Flash Back or Flash Forward?




"When were you at your goal weight? When did you feel good about your body and your weight?"

These are the questions that my nutritionist and my doctor have posed.  When I answered my nutritionist, it went something like this...

"1990.  No, wait...".  I distinctly remembered sitting on the floor of the GAP dressing room with my Skinny Sister, crying about the fact that I no longer fit in size 10 jeans.  She had no idea what to say to her older sister,  poor thing.

Then I said,

     "1987"  But then I remembered never wearing dresses because I felt like my legs were too damn big.  I went back in time and tried to think of a moment when I was actually content with my body image.  I thought back to 70's when I was five years old.  A group of girls sat down cross-legged and I noticed how much bigger my thighs were than theirs.

At a certain point, I just accepted that I would be bigger than other girls. That was just me, no big deal.  I still had plenty of friends, played sports and even felt pretty at times.  I just came to accept that I wasn't a skinny girl.

Instead of looking back, I think it's much more beneficial for me to fast forward and look into the future.  The past is the past.  There is nothing I really want to go "back" to.   It helps to actually visualize success...what it will feel like, what I will wear and what I will do...climb mountains, run races, keep up with my kids or my grandkids.

What keeps you motivated...going back to a place or time your were happy or going to a place you've never been before?  And where is that place?

Here's my deal for yesterday:

Breakfast:  Protein Shake
Snack: none
Lunch:  Salad with sashimi
Dinner:  Vegetable panini, wine

I started to have stomach issues from the vitamin supplements I am taking so I didn't take them last night.  I'm going to talk to my nutritionist and see if we can switch things up.  Otherwise, the plan is going well!

My great weight time: October 30, 1999. I weighed 195. That was the day I snapped my ACL and two other ligaments in my knee. Ten years and four knee operations later I weigh 230... Ugggh, I'm going for a run... Or a brisk walk.

Thanks for sharing. I love how you have a very specific date! Swimming is SO great when you are dealing with those types of injuries. Ryan and Camie just did a relay triathlon with people with missing limbs...very inspiring how they stay in shape despite their odds.
