Last Monday I started going to the gym again. It's SO NICE to have access to a gym again! I have already spent so much time there. I plan on spending much more. One thing I am going to do differently however, is use the pool more. I have already gone twice, which is more than I had used it last year already. I wish I had been using it sooner. I guess I wasn't as confident in my body as I thought. I finally just told myself to get over it. I'm there to exercise, no one is going to look glamorous at the gym. No, I'm not at my ideal weight, but the only way I'm going to get there is if I keep exercising. Swimming just happens to be a great form of exercise.
Food wise, things have been going quite well. I have been paying a lot more attention to how I feel. I'm finding that I'm not as hungry as I thought I would be. I still have a coffee here and there, but I'm doing so much better overall.
I wanted to to weigh myself, but I decided that I am not going to do that until I feel like I am at a healthy weight for my height. I have lost weight before without weighing myself. I will just listen to my body and when I get to that point, I'll weigh myself. I'm done obsessing over it like I always seem to do. It just leads to misery. Weight loss isn't the only thing I can be good at.
For example I have a lot to do for school this year. I'm thinking "one assignment at a time" so I don't get stressed out and just quit. Well, why can't I apply that to my weight loss? One workout at a time, one meal at a time...It's the same thing.
I am motivated. I feel awesome.
