2 lbs lost is better than 0
Saturday, June 22, 2013
After a month of looking at that start page saying, "0 lbs lost (yet!)" it feels really good to have it say "2 lbs lost." I know 2 lbs isn't much and I could fluctuate it back tomorrow, but I am going to wait out that week to weigh again and even if it is only one more pound lost I will be proud of myself. Just seeing a streak of tracking for six days in a row makes me feel more confident. It feels good just to know that I am really trying again. For the past 9 months I have been trying to watch portion sizes and exercise more but I am stuck in the same ten pound range going back and forth between 220-230. I decided I wasn't doing enough. It's time to track my foods and exercise every day. Last time I tried to do that I felt very restricted and stressed about it. This time I am going to remind myself that If I stick to this I could be the size I want in only two years. If I had stuck with it when I signed up for SP two years ago I could have been there now. Instead I am at the highest weight I have ever been in my life. Food addictions are not worth having to live this way. God gave me this body and I need to learn how to take care of it the way he intended.
