Iíve been slipping up for longer than I would like to and the more I think about it, Iím only hurting myself. All this back and forth really has me wasting a lot of time and quite honestly I donít think there are any more possible excuses in the world I can make. Ive started to realize that itís all will power and discipline and either I stop being lazy now or pay for it later when it will just get that much harder for me to lose weight.
Iíve been stuck on a plateau for a while and I am on a major mission to lose 30lbs that I have been stuck on for a while now. Before I had Jakob I was on a weight loss journey and I had reached a good weight that I felt comfortable with. While 20 lbs doesnít sound like a whole lot, it actually did make a difference on me. I told myself that after having Jakob I would get back on it but life happened and I ended up gaining all my weight back and then some. I was appalled at myself and something had to be doneÖ.
Three and half years later, here I am struggling with this weight and its been so hard to take off. I can honestly say, I have tried just about everything but what works best for me is staying consistent and true to myself. I could take all the pills in the world and while it shows immediate results, in the long run it only hurts me. This is what I have learned about dieting.
More importantly dieting should never be short-term. The change you make have to be slow and stead and for life. What works for one person will not work for me and I have learned that over the years as well. One thing that I keep trying to wrap my head around is learning to accept my body for what it is. I was not given a skinny little petite type of body so I wont try to kill myself to reach a goal which is not attainable.
Over the next few weeks, I will be going back to basics but also pushing myself harder than before. The colder months are arriving and I love this time of year. I want spend as much time as possible outside!
