Loss/Gain: +1 . 0
Total Loss So Far: - 42 . 5 lbs
Well, folks, today's weigh-in is just honest and the truth. I've been reading blogs again here and there and it's helping me to get motivated to get back on track.
Yet, I have a confession...since the best way to succeed in this kind of journey is to be honest...I'd like to say I'm not ready to get back into the swing of things, but as I ate some ice cream last night I had to admit it wasn't that I wasn't ready, but that I wasn't willing.
I'm not exactly proud of that, but it's true. I'm ready to feel good and to get back to good exercise and better eating, and I have cut back my portions, but I find myself not willing to do what it takes just yet.
For me with a super-slow metabolism it means moving a lot and eating very light, with treats in moderation. I feel good when I do this, but lately I just haven't wanted to cut out the extra treats (because the evening treats are what's getting me...I start the day out very well) Sad, I know. It's something I know I'll always face in this journey.
However, don't worry, I'm not throwing in the towel and giving up. I am determined to become a healthier, happier woman who can control her weight.
I weigh myself every day to remind me of what needs to be done. I do want to get back on track and reach that weight loss goal, but I know what it takes and I have to be willing to make the changes to get there.
I'm working on it.... in the meantime. My husband is off of work today, so I'm off to make breakfast for the family and then we're headed out to the beach. I'm also hoping to get a new pair of running shoes this weekend.
Have a great Friday everyone!
