*results not typical
AAAAAUUUUGGGHHH!!!! Surely I'm not the only person who finds this disclaimer terrible.
It looms in the back of my mind sometimes, taunting me into believing that even if I reach my weight loss goal of losing 80 pounds, the odds against me maintaining that are nill.
RESULTS NOT TYPICAL, LEAH, SO STOP FOOLING YOURSELF.
I am sick of the fear of re-gain. Why shouldn't my good results be typical? Why can't we all get to our goal weights and stay there? Why must the results be "not typical"?
As of this moment, I'm going to use that disclaimer as motivation. But I don't want my results to be atypical. No, I want to change the disclaimer altogether. Let's work together to make "results not typical" a thing of the past, and start having great weight loss results be the typical thing!
A pipe dream? Maybe.
When I get to my goal weight of 140 (10.8 pounds to go!), I will post a before and after photo for all to see, and it will say in bold print "results typical". Because... why not? ;-)
