A lot of us don't realize that life happening all around us can take a toll on our bodies. My weight at home is completely different than my weight in the car. Taking in a breath of oxygen will bump it up a notch, so it comes as no surprise that this week was a frustrating week. To be honest I shouldn't even call it frustrating because I knew what was going on and I did not wander off the beaten path when it came to my points. I may have dipped into my weekly extras but that's what they're there for and I didn't go to the gym as often as I would have liked. Am I disappointed, a little. Did I want to throw in the towel and quite, heck yeah! It would be so easy to just walk away and say I gave it a go. But then I remembered what my coach said...Even when you're ready to give in, just go to that meeting, and she was right, I'm re-motivated again, perhaps even more so. To say my week was a stressful one is an understatement so I'm going to read you a little note I wrote to myself this morning.
I woke up today with the realization that no matter what the scale says today I won't let that stop me! It's so easy to give up and pack it in when we don't see the changes we want on the scale but weight loss isn't sipossed to be just a change on the outside, it's supossed to be internal too. It's a lifetime change that takes a lifetime commitment.
It took me all my life, so far, to pack on these unwanted pounds so shame on me for thinking I could lose them all in just three weeks. What was I thinking?
All that said, what have I learned this week? Slow and steady wins the race. I don't want to lose the weight only to have it all come back plus some. I want to change from the inside out and be a losing success permanently!
Week 4 look out cause I'm bringing it back!
Stay Happy and Motivated Darlings!
