9 Lbs gone
Saturday, February 19, 2011
I dropped another pound this week, which I'm glad about. I did all the little things I'm supposed to do to lose the weight. I'm recording everything I eat, working out 4-5x a week for 30 to 60 minutes, taking my vitamins, drinking more water, and reading lots of inspiring blog posts, articles and books. I think the hardest thing is to be patient. I know I'm repeating myself, but I think that's the biggest challenge for me. I'm so used to instant gratification that it's tough to truly internalize that this is a marathon and not a sprint.
Still, I'm feeling much better than I did and feel more attractive than I did, even if my weight is still pretty high. The other thing I'm acutely aware of is that by February 19, 2010, I had quit logging into SP and abandoned my plan. The fact that I am still here, day after day and now week after week is something I'm ready to reward myself for.
