What is it like in Goalweight-Land?
Thursday, July 05, 2012
I have just had a vision of my scales crossing that 65kg line it hasn't crossed for as long as I can remember! I can see myself reaching 63kgs, not tomorrow, not next month, but I can see myself there for sure! It is a great feeling I must say, I am so happy with where I am, and I am truly a happier person for it! I lost 14kgs so far, a part of my body I had hated so much! I feel free, and I feel that this is the real me coming through. But the closer I get....
Now I cannot help but worry: I have been here before, I have had weight loss achievements in the past, and I had sworn to myself never to go back to the way things were before. Not straight away, not even after one or two months, but over the following year I always seemed to gain back the weight I had lost.
What can I do this time to stay there? Is it hard to maintain? Is it harder to maintain than to lose? What will it be like when I achieve my goal? Will I know when I get to my goal weight, if it was the right place to stop? Should I go further just to make sure it lasts? Will I be as strong in maintaining my weight as I was achieving it?
Please give me the strength this time to stay in Goalweight-Land!!
