Woo Wee, what a couple of months! I thought for sure I was broken or something?! After 70 plus pounds shed, why in the world the halt?! It can be so discouraging doing the right thing day in and day out, and all you get to show for it is a half pound loss at the end of the week if that. Oh, how my mind wars with how in the world did I lose all this weight and so fast? It's not like I'm doing anything differently now...or am I? Well, not me, but my body.
I figure maybe it needs a little siesta. Maybe my skin which is a little saggy now needs this sistah to whoa her horsies a little. Maybe my body is saying look we know you're all about losing weight, but don't you think we've done enough for you? And look how fast??? Yea, yea, I respond to it, but truthfully maybe I do need to be a wee bit nicer to myself. I am still losing after all. Yes, it is incredibly slow...like a wee, baby turtle, but it is still coming off. My friend mentioned I might've reached my "set point". I've been debating that, but I really think my body just needs a moment to catch up with my will.
This is hard for me. I am a worker, a go-getter, I went all in with this thing, and I don't plan on looking back, yet these emotions, oh dear God, my emotions kick me in my gut like a horse taking a goad. Not fun dealing with these feelings, but at least I'm dealing with them right? At least I'm not eating them this time around! Whew! Yes, dear friends, I think I am going to enjoy this glory for a while. I am going to be proud of my accomplishment, and I'll tell you a secret, if you've lost any weight at all, or even just simply FEEL better because of some healthy changes you've made, I commend you. This stuff ain't for ninnies, but hey now, we aren't ninnies are we?
Have a wonderful day Sparkers, and I'll tell you what I keep reminding myself, if we just stay at it, if we just don't quit, we will. we will. we WILL reach our goal! See you at the finish line!!!!
