I am learning - realizing more every day that if I really want to lose weight - get back to the slim me of my younger adult life, it is REALLY up to ME - no one else can do it for me, I am not just going to step on the scale one morning and find out that I was "lucky" enough to lose 10 pounds over night. I have to work my tail off (literally) to see results. It is not easy - I really have to work hard for every pound. I talked to a trainer one day - she told me that she didn't understand why for all the work - I am doing - why the weight wasn't coming off quicker. Well I don't get it either - but I do know that I am earning every pound gone and it feels good. I don't mind hard work - and I have learned to love the exercise "high". And the work is paying off - I stepped on the scale this morning and another pound is gone - never to return - I can be proud of what I am accomplishing. I am getting stronger every day - my endurance is increasing and I can see that there is muscle hiding under the fat - LOL! I am going to have to get some new clothes one of these soon days because my pants are getting looser - yeah!!!
