Struggles of Losing Weight
Monday, December 16, 2013
How did I lose 64 pounds and then gain all but 5 pounds back?
How can I lose a few inches off my body, everywhere, and still feel like I am not getting anywhere?
Since November 1, 2013, I restarted my weight loss journey. I am down 19 pounds(not counting the 5 pounds mentioned previously).
I am constantly asking everyone around me if I am slimming down. "Am I slimming down? Are you sure? Are you lying to me?" My fiancÚ is actually getting frustrated with me asking, because I ask EVERY day!
Why is losing weight a constant struggle? Why can't it be smooth and easy to lose and keep off? Why is it a mind game? To make me feel like I am not losing anything or slimming down, when I actually am. The scale and measuring tape tells me that I am!
I have been working out every day since November 1st, with only one day of no exercise.
I need to keep pushing forward and figure out how to rethink and retrain my brain to stop making me think that I am not losing weight!
I need to get this weight off and never let it come back! I need to stay positive and tell myself that even if I get to the point of not caring, I need to care! I need to NOT relax when I get weight off(Like I did in July 2012, when I lost 64 pounds)!
From this day on, I will continue my progress until I am fit: Mind and Body.
