Today I was worried about how slow I lose weight. I have around 110 pounds to lose and I feel like since september 2011 I'm just thinking about that: losing weight... In fact, I'm thinking about that since 2007 (ex cept during my two pregnency). I saw every where people who lose 100 pounds in one year, in ten months, etc. How I'm not like them???? Even my husband lose 60 pounds in the last 5 months... he was motivated by me he said...
Then I decided to login on spark... last blog I wrote was in july. Even if I wasn't active here, I kept in mind my weight lost goals during that time and work on it. I enter my weight and saw the number 54 pounds lost since the beginning in september 2011. Then I realize: that is a big number! That is something! It's not 100 pounds in a year... it's not even a pound per week... but it's 54 pounds, 54 pounds not on my body anymore.
It's not 100 pounds in a year, because I focused on healty habits instead of dieting. Because I indulged myself some treats with my childrens. Because I celebrated each birthdays during that time like all people in my family. Because I promise myself that I will eat the same food that I give tho my boys, healty foods not diet food and certainly not a different meal. Beacause I had no problem to give up on my 30 minutes jogging and instead take a walk with my 4 years son, to make him active too.
I want to be clear here... I'm not saying that I'm better than people who lose 100 pounds in a year. Obviouly not, it take me way more time that I first thought to lose my weight. I just realize why, the reasons, I was not so dedicated myself on my weight lost. Those people, I admire them, I'm even jealous. I don't have that force to be so focused on my goal. But when I saw what was my excuses, I'm ok with that. I will take my 54 pounds and just keep going... I will have one day my 110.
