I'm approaching a familiar point in the healthy eating plan. Each and every time I've done this in the past, I haven't lost ten pounds a week, I have felt hungry, I haven't dropped mega inches and I haven't been infused with the energy of a two year old. And because I want it all, and I want it now, I've quit.
This time around I've lost about eight pounds in about ten weeks. That's a healthy weight loss but less than half a pound a week, in recent weeks is hardly encouraging. Better eight pounds off, than eight pounds gained though.
Health problems have prevented an increase in exercise, or are the health problems an excuse for just not wanting to do it? I've signed up for a class that will force me to work out.
I'm hoping that if I can just stay with it through the valleys when I want to quit, I will keep the motivation going to succeed.
