The 5 lb Blues
Sunday, July 25, 2010
It seems like I can always start a new lifestyle and be comfortable with it for about 2 weeks. That's usually the time it takes me to lose the first 5 pounds. The problem is I've never made it past those 5 pounds. Last time I around I gained them back and added 9 more! I don't know what it is about me and staying committed, but I've got to find a way to do it this time. This is like a war. It can't be won in one simple battle. It takes many small victories. I've lost 5 pounds, but they are already creeping back. The scales this morning said 172 instead of the 170 at my last weigh in. I've realized now that this is going to be a lot more work than I bargained for and most of it is emotional! I want it bad though so I'm going to do it! When that voice of negativity starts talking, I'm going to talk back!
