That little voice in our heads

Why is it that the little voice in our heads is so capable of talking us out of things?

For me it's running. I don't see myself as a runner, I still think I'm the fat girl who can't run. I mean I'm running 20+ miles a week, training for a marathon but I still think somewhere along the line I'm going to stumble and fail.

Our ability to lose so much weight and persevere with the plan is all with the power in our heads, so how come when we need it it works against us? We are constantly comparing ourselves to others; the people we run past, the person on the treadmill next to us, our partners, our friends, celebrities, the list goes on.

And the only person we should compare ourselves to is the person we were yesterday. It sounds cliche but it's true, if we take one day at a time then the likelihood of succeeding is far greater than wanting to look like someone else.
Perhaps my lack on confidence in ability to run at the moment is linked to the fact that the scales are not moving, not even half a lb. I'm just sat nicely on 12st 10lbs. Ew. I'm following Filling & Healthy with my 49 propoints. This week I've weighed everything as too as an extra measure, but I don't know how else I can get the scales moving.
I had to contraceptive injection a week ago so maybe it's linked to that?
If you have any tips that would be great as I need a boost!

Lots of love
