The Ugly Truth

Monday, November 19, 2012

There are many ugly truths that I have had to face in the past couple of days. Some of them aren't even about me, but they are more about the perceptions of other people. It is always easy to look at somebody else's journey and tell them what we perceive they are doing wrong. So here is the ugly truth about my journey.

1. I still "cheat."

Yeah, I know this is supposed to be a lifestyle change, but the one thing that keeps me from binging is knowing that I can eat whatever I want to. I am in control of my eating not some diet plan that someone who probably has never even had to lose weight made up.

2. I weigh myself everyday!

Yeah, I know that I should weigh myself at the same time once a week. However, I have found that I hold myself more accountable if I can even see the small ounces lost over the course of a day. It makes me stick to my plans for eating for the day and even is encouraging because I can see the change.

3. I don't want you telling me what to do.

When I ask for advice, yeah that's awesome. However, I do not like being told from someone who doesn't eat right or work out what I should be doing. Before you give me your unwanted advice, I would rather you stick to your plan yourself.

These are just some ugly truths that I have discovered about myself in the course of a week. Sorry if it hurts your feelings or you disagree, but the fact is...no one defines MY journey except for me. At the end of the day, I am the one that has to answer to myself for not doing the things that I think I should be doing to complete this journey! Hope everyone has a GREAT week!

    Another Amen to #3, so annoying when they do that.

    Well said. It is important to know the truth about ourselves. I think that is half the battle. We are all on individual paths yet similar.

    Have a great week.
