We were asked to reflect on our previous 6 weeks with BLC. We are at our half way point now. We were asked to be honest with ourselves on what we did well & what could use some work.
I feel that it helps me tremendously when I take the time to reflect on where I'm going on this weight loss journey. Since I started this journey with BLC on June 5th I have recently met my goal. I have a weight loss of 23 lbs. My goal was to reach 220ville (229) before the 12 weeks were up. I am now at 228 lbs. At first I felt very pleased with reaching my goal then something happened which I am trying to sort out in my mind. It is hard for me to appreciate where I am at this point on my journey. I still have to shop in the plus sizes. I still have plenty of weight to lose. I truthfully don't like the way I look . I have come to the realization for me to be able to move on I must accept where I am now! I have made the decision I will accept where I am & move on from there. Since the challenge started I have increased my water intake on a daily basis & started eating healthy unprocessed food. I have been trying a lot of new healthy recipes. Some were quite good. Even my DH loved them.
Now the things I must work on. I want to be consistent when it comes to exercise. One thing I want to accomplish before this challenge ends is to use my treadmill each & every day. I also must start watching my food portions more closely.
I would be so happy if I could end this challenge in 210ville (219). Only time will tell.
