Before I begin, let me just say..... I know I have a LONG way to go. I know I have many many MANY more bad habits to work on. I know that I make mistakes more often than I should and don't work out of often as I would like. I know that I must work a lot harder than some people to get this weight off and that not everybody loses at the same pace.
With that being said - I AM EFFING AWESOME. SERIOUSLY.
I don't care what anybody says, I am. I work my ASS off at the gym everyday I go - even if it is only for 35 minutes 3 or 4 days a week. I sweat sooo much, it should be embarrassing, but it's not. I am proud of that sweat. To me, it means I am working hard. (In all actuality I don't know what to believe when it comes to sweating. I looked at a few articles and one said it was a good thing, and the other said it wasn't. I don't know. lol. ) So, I take it as I am getting a good work out in. Also, let me add that in the past the longest I have ever lasted on this journey was a few weeks, tops. I have been going pretty consistently since MARCH. Isn't that wonderful? The only other person who encourages me is Cye - He is so wonderful. He is ALWAYS saying I am doing great and I can't help but agree. I mean, I don't mean to "toot my own horn" but almost 6 months of consistency IS great. I haven't lost the weight I would like, but I have changed my lifestyle to be much more active and I am working on everything else daily. People ask me how much I have lost. I couldn't tell you. I refuse to step on that evil scale. That scale does not tell me if I am healthy, I DO. Me eating better and working out and my clothes getting baggy tells me I have lost weight, not some scale that only brings me down when I step on it. I have a long way to go, but I am confident I am finally starting to get the hang of things, day by day, little by little. It may take longer than I would like to get to my goal... but I'm not worried. I am a work in progress... A work of Art that is. =o]
