I've hit a plateau at my 20 lb loss. I've had to do a lot of internal coaching this week to keep from feeling discouraged. It's hard to sometimes not look in the mirror and think "Oh my God, I've got so far to go." But it is as equally important to look back and think "Thank you God! I've come this far." My body hasn't morphed to what I want it to look like. I didn't add these pounds on over night nor will I melt these pounds away in one or even two months. I will have to work at this. I will have to sweat and cry. I will have to fight for myself and my health. It will be a struggle and has been a struggle. But if I can just keep showing up each day I will slowly gain ground back. So I keep pressing ahead knowing that the prize that awaits me is gaining my life back. It's worth the struggle.
