My weight loss has all but come to a screeching halt in 2012! I am maintaining my current weight very well, but the pounds are not flying off as easily as they did last year. And I am okay with this.
My body is still changing. I am eating better every day - I'm making better choices for myself all the time! I am still working out every day. I am now beginning to notice changes in the way I look, other than weighing less. I have better definition in places I've never noticed before! When I run, I feel stronger than ever. My speed is increasing. I LOVE ZUMBA...and the elliptical! I ALWAYS feel better after I work out. 100% of the time this is true. I feel WORSE when I don't get up and DO SOMETHING. Talk about a change in focus from a mere 14 months ago! And I feel better - consistently - on a daily basis...than I ever have in my entire life.
Friends, this is not about a quick fix. I am in this for the long haul. And even if I don't SEE things changing, I STILL FEEL DIFFERENT. A little different...a little better...a little STRONGER - every single day.
When you get discouraged, look for those little things. We need to rely on those for the times when things SEEM slow. But mark my words...keep working your program. Don't give up. Don't EVER give up.
