For the past 5 weeks I had been gaining and losing the same pound. Today I am finally over the hump with an additional half pound loss. It's a small movement, but progress none the less.
I'm not entirely focused on the scale and am noticing body changes which are encouraging, but still have a desire to see the numbers on the scale go down. I am, after all, still in the obese category. Fourteen and a half pounds to go, til that dreaded term is eliminated from my personal adjectives!
Eight more ounces will get me to the 20 pound loss mark.....for this go around anyway, which started about mid June. At some point I may post my measurements. I was surprised to see I had lost an inch in my NECK alone!
Some days this process seems so incredibly slow, but then I get a glimpse of my belly in the mirror and can't help but smile. I'm making this happen and I'm winning. The winnings are even greater when I cut the bullsh*t excuses and just get to it.
I am my own coach, my own nutritionist, my own cook. I claim no expertise in any of these areas, but I do have enough information to know how this works, what I need to do and who is responsible when it works and when it doesn't.
Embracing the process!
