I have to face the fact that I have stopped losing weight. I am not entirely upset because I have lost 36 pounds and for me that is a lot. In looking back at what happened to stop my weight loss, I realize that I have stopped trying to lose weight. I stopped watching my calories and daily exercise. I have enjoyed being at this weight rather than the old 303 lbs. Then I thought back to when I stopped losing weight other times that I have tried. It was the same old thing. I stopped because I had had some success and was enjoying it. Then, I began to slip back into my old ways and started complaining that I just couldn't lose weight and keep it off.
I cannot let myself fall into this trap again. I know if I lose another 36 pounds, I will be even happier with my weight than I am now. I cannot allow myself to stop trying to lose weight yet and when I do, I will need to set into place a plan to keep the creeping scales from climbing again.
I must find a way to keep from being content where I am.
As I write this, my hubby came in and laid 3 bite size snickers on my desk. A testimony to the fact that he knows that I have stopped also. Got to love him. He supports me no matter which way I go. didn't know I was so apparent. I must go put them back into the sack and do some exercise.
Keep me in your thoughts and prayers.
