I am just not a blogger, I have come to realize. But to finish off this challenge we were challenged to blog about the past 10 weeks. I have done well, I am feeling pretty good about my successes and lessons learned this challenge. During so many challenges before I have started out strong and fizzled out by week 5 or 6, and barely making it by the end. This time I made it my personal goal to just not give in or up no matter what. I did it, I started to die out around week 8 but picked myself right back up and got back on immediately. I also learned that the same system doesn't work for everyone. I use to take weekends "off" I just can't do that. However I also learned how to not totally deprive myself of things either. But . . . on the other hand I also learned of some foods that are just off limits to me and may be for the rest of my life, it's sad for me, but it's necessary, I lose control when I eat certain foods.
My next challenge is going to be very tough, but I have confidence I can do it. I as many have a tendancy to take time "off" between challenges, and this time that's not happening, a lot of hardwork can be undone with that kind of mindset. My goal is to not only maintain but actually continue to lose while in the downtime between challenges.
I have a big goal for myself, my baby brother is getting married in September, and I want to look and feel great for this. He is so important to me, and I want to be able to give him his day, and not be worried about how I look or if people are looking at me. I want to be able to shop for that perfect outfit with confidence So therefore I have a lot of work ahead of me.
