I have accomplished so much in this last year and I do see the success that I have had even if the scale isn't moving down like I would like it to. I have been hovering around 200 now for the last 6 months and I am happy that I have not allowed myself to just give up and watch my weight come back.
I have maintained.
I have a "magic" number that I feel that I should be getting to and by maintaining I am not getting there.
But it feels like I have been in an uphill battle since I finally hit under 200. I was happy and excited that I hit a weight that I hadn't seen since I was a senior in high school. But then my weight loss stopped. No matter how good I eat or how much I exercise it feels like I am not making any progress. I have not given up all together but I do feel how I am not giving it my all anymore and haven't quite figured out how to get back to it 100%.
I am proud of what I have done in this last year which is more than I thought I ever would be able to. I have run a 5K and gotten my personal best pace, I have run a 10K without walking any part of it, I have climbed partly up Mt. Hood and it felt great, I have kept up with my kids and even passed them and having them ask me to slow down....lol
Giving up doesn't feel like an option anymore, so to me that is great progress. So all in all, even though the scale isn't showing what I think it should be showing, I feel that so far its been a great year!
I am looking forward to the remainder of the year being just as great!
