Alright, I am not going to lie, I am a tad bit jealous. I have struggled for nearly 2 months to lose 4.2 pounds, my friend on the other hand, who just started, managed to do that in one week. One week!
I took it with good stride. I congratulated her, she deserved it, but in the back of my head I kind of wanted to hit her with my car. She of course, is nearly 10 years younger and only has to work half as hard as I do.
Just saying that made me feel old.
I am more motivated this week, giving myself stricter calorie limits and working out more. I am not going to let myself feel bad about how long it took me to lose what I did, I still lost it. I AM proud of her, it is not a competition, at least not with her, or anyone else.
It is not even a competition with the weight. It is a competition with negative self thoughts, or rather myself in general. The battle will be long. The battle will be hard, but I WILL win. In fact, every day I keep trying I already win.
Motivational quote for today:
“If you hear a voice within you say, you cannot paint, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.”
― Vincent van Gogh
