Do you Sabotage yourself?

After many months of working out and eating well I decided to buy some clothes b/c I was feeling baggy in the clothes I previously wore. I was stunned to find that I dropped 3 sizes. I look back and know that I earned it b/c I journal everyday, eat nutritious stuff, and exercise -I am doing what all these threads encourage. Now, I find myself thinking that I did this all for nothing b/c I'm going to gain it all back one day - that really I'm not meant to have this body and this is just a temorary thing. Is that weird? I mean, I know I am sounding very negative and I'm afraid I'm going to sabotage myself. Has anyone felt like this before?

First, Congratulations on all the hard work. It really does pay off.
Second, I have sabbotaged myself in the past. And yes it is something that I wonder about now. But if you keep in your mind how hard you worked to get here and are aware of the fact that sabbotage is even an issue I think that will help.
I think just with any part of the diet process you have to be diligent and pay attention and not let those pounds creep back on.
Just keep fighting for yourself and what you want. It is worth it. As you can see.

Congrats on your accomplishment and success!

I sabotage myself everyday it seems! But, I ultimately believe that I can and will keep my weight off. Even if I slip up, as well all can do, I believe that it's no big deal, I'll get it off, but I do that before I gain more than a few pounds. So, don't start off with sabotaging thoughts - you've proven you can do it! Believe in yourself!

As long as you keep that knowledge with you, that your aware of how you feel I think you will be fine. Just keep doing what your doing. I had a friend who lost 90 pounds over 2 years only to gain it back plus some in less then 6 months, she was going through a very difficult time.

This always happens to me. I am doing really well, lose the weight, and then begin having these negative thoughts. I started reading the Beck Diet Solution and that book explains how do deal with sabotaging thoughts. It's a great book. One of the things that it recommends is to write down your sabotaging thought on an index card and write a positive response to it. Then you read the positive response every time you have this negative thought. It helps.
