Be patient, be determined, be focused
My scale isnít moving as quickly as I would like. I really expected to see the scale move todayÖbut noooooo.
I feel like Iím waiting for the pot of water to boil. Iíve got the burner set to high, but I feel like I have a huge pot of cool water, and itís going to take TIME to really get things going. I know the water is heating up but it feels more like blind faith than exact science. I believe itís going to happen, but itís really slow this time.
Iím following the rules harder than ever and I know I canít give up. I canít afford to. My body was starting to rebel against me, before I got serious, and I know I caught it in time. Still, I need more than a temporary correction, I need a major update. And I need to do it before I have a critical breakdown.
I guess the real key is perseverance. Plateaus and little slips are not failures, as long as I continue heading towards my goals. But, I could really really use a little momentum.
