I just posted this in my BLC 23 chat room, and thought I may as well include it in my blog section. I always find it helpful to look through my old blogs to see where I had successes, failures, what worked, what didn't, etc.
I've been feeling pretty "blah" about weight loss this week. I've been on track and losing for 4 straight months. And now my inner 3 year old is saying "I'm tired of this! I don't WANNA eat well and exercise anymore!" I'm doing my very best to ignore this voice in my head. As my quote says, "if you're tired of starting over, stop giving up". It's been pretty smooth sailing up to this point, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that I'm hitting a bit of a wall.
I've lost a significant amount of weight 3 times in my life (I'm not counting losing 10-15 lbs which I've done a million times). The first was 27 lbs, then 30 lbs, then 27 lbs. After that, I gained all the weight back (and then some) each time. Guess how much I've lost so far this time? 28 lbs. For some reason this is a big hurdle for me to get over. I want this time to be different. I want to get through this rough patch and keep going. And I definitely don't want to gain the weight back again.
