Acceptance


I think I have finally accepted the fact that this weight loss journey is going to take quite a bit of time. I've been getting frustrated because I am working out so hard at the gym. I'm working with a trainer and the days I'm not with him I get to the treadmill and work hard. I'm just not seeing anything coming off.

I have to also accept the fact that my medications for my depression and my PCOS do not help my cause, but I am not going to give in to those reasons and accept the weight I am currently at.

I will admit that I am starting to "feel" better. Slow as it goes, steady wins the race. I am pressing on to my prize.

Today I Am Thankful For:

1. breakfast with my husband
2. vanilla coffee creamer
3. great medical care
4. steam cleaned carpet
5. early dismissal days

It's taken me a year to lose my weight and I still have over 20 more to go. But I think about where I was a year ago and it's all been worth it. Don't quit.

God Bless

Atta girl!! My success earlier this year came from a complete shift in my focus. Instead of focusing on losing weight, I chose to concentrate on being healthy ~ making smarter food choices, being more active, and setting an example of a healthy lifestyle for my two girls (ages 4 and 6). It's amazing how a difference in attitude can change how you view successes and setbacks.

You can do it!! You're well on your way!

Muscle weighs more than fat. It sounds like you're building muscle and that may be why the scale doesn't move much. I will bet that your clothes fit differently. Sometimes we let the scale influence how we feel about the journey even though we feel better because of what we are accomplishing.
Hang in there,
Mama Bear

Healthy weight loss is on my mind again. I need to get re-focused.
