Enjoying My Journey

Monday, August 05, 2013

While my head knows that this is MY journey and no one else's, it can be hard not to compare with other people. Questions go through my head. Why am I not losing weight? Why is my weight going down when others are losing more? How do some find so much time to exercise? This is my journey and I can only worry about things I can control. I can control what I eat, whether I work out that day, whether I use a combination of cardio and strength training, and whether I drink the recommended amount of water. I can also search for as much information as possible to help my journey. MY journey and story!

Enjoying the journey is something I am working on. It's easy to enjoy when you see the fruits of your labors, not so easy when the changes are not so obvious!

    I feel the same way often - just keep at it! Good luck!

    You sound like me. It seems every one losses weight faster than I do.
It is our own journey though and every one is different.
I've been losing inches but not pounds this past month so I must be doing something right.
Stick with it, you are on the right path.

  Many times you will lose fat and not weight. But the good side to that is your clothes will feel looser!

    You're seeing it now! Woohoo!
Just like any adventure you will have ups and downs, but you will reach your goal!

    My scale is moving very slowly also, but I notice that I have more stamina and my clothes are fitting better. In fact, a few of what were favorite larger sizes are on their way to resale shop.

    Measurements help and also tuning in to what you can do now that you couldn't do before. Every morning I have to climb a pretty steep hill first thing on my walk around the neighborhood. I noticed that other day that I can now jog partway up! Woo hoo! Celebrate those NSV! Congratulations on being more mindful--that is key as well! Keep Sparking!

  Have you been taking measurements? That is how I know I am on the right track!
