For the past few weeks I have been out of sorts. Not depressed, not UN-motivated, nothing really specific, just not myself. Bod food choices were a big culprit and of course that special visitor didn't help.
For some reason today, I just feel balanced. I feel at peace with life, my choices and where I am going in life.
As much as I like knowing how much I weigh, it has been such a good feeling to go into the gym and not weigh myself. I have been tempted but have held off. It feels very empowering knowing that it doesn't matter how much I weigh. What really matters is that I still want to work hard and eat right. To me that seems like a much more important idea.
For 2 years now I have been solely focused on losing weight. Working out to burn calories and eating only enough to sustain. It feels so much better to workout because I like the feeling. Eating to fuel my body and making the best choices just because I want to.
I know that I am so back and forth. Trying to figure out what life after weight loss is. It's so easy when you are losing weight. You have a road map to follow. Burn more calories then you consume and you will lose weight. Trying to figure out the rest is hard, but fortunately it is doable.
