I just finished reading the SparkCoach lesson for the day in which I have been encouraged to think about having fun on this weight loss adventure. The problem is, I haven't lost a pound! Well, I've lost a couple and found them again right away. I don't think eating is fun at all. It's a pain in my neck -- or ass, if you want the truth. The other problem is, I love to eat, even though it's not fun. Confusing.
I have managed to find exercise I enjoy, but after 18 months of swimming, I'm a little bored. I added 20 lengths of flippers today, and that helped.
Though the swimming work out is a little tired and eating is not fun, I do feel encouraged. I have regained my strength and I can do things I haven't been able to do in a long time. I can move furniture and mow the lawn and shovel snow. I can get into my kayak (though getting out is still difficult) and I can swim, swim, swim. The seatbelt in my car is still tight. Everything in it's own time, I guess.
