Make Believe

Wednesday, March 08, 2017

So, I have had a pretty significant set back - 10 pounds, to be exact. I am incredibly disappointed and discouraged, but if I don't recommit, this downward trend is only going to continue.

I could make some legitimate excuses - steroids, illness, comfort eating, inactivity ... some of it is out of my hands, but I am not ready to relinquish the part that I can control. I'm typically the kind of person that goes down fighting.

So, make believe - or rather, make myself believe again in my ability to lose weight. It is definitely a challenge. I have been heavy since childhood, and I honestly have a very hard time envisioning myself ever reaching a textbook healthy weight, but I do know that every little bit counts. I need to work on my expectations and vision of myself, but in the meanwhile, maybe small successes will help build my confidence.

I had a pretty decent day today - not too much pain, got in a little exercise - beautiful weather, rode a bit with my hubby, and stayed within my calorie range.

Taking it one step, one day at a time - fake it til you make it!
