Finally down 20 lbs

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Hey SP,

It has taken me 16 weeks to lose 20 lbs. I'm not complaining but I thought I'd at least be down 25 or 30 but it's cool. I'm down overall 30 lbs because this is my 2nd Weight Watcher's round. I am just going to keep pressing towards my goal and before I know it, I'll be down 100 lbs. I think I get really frustrated when I don't meet the goals I've set for myself. For example, I wanted to be back down to 209 lbs by the end of July. I am currently 228.3 so I will not be hitting that goal then but it's cool that doesn't mean that I should quit. I need to keep going and I will get to my goals when I get to them.

I realize that just because it's not going as fast as I want, doesn't mean it's not going. If I give up, I will gain weight and time will pass just like last time. I lost 50 lbs between Oct 2011-June 2012. In June I gave up and gained weight from June - March 2013. 39 lbs to be exact and time sure did pass but the weight increased. This time, I will work out as time passes so next summer I can look up and say hey, I kept going and I am down 100 lbs!

Welp that's all folks.

    The hardest thing is realizing that losing 1lb a week is actually a success!

    Great job! Keep on trucking!
