While my progress during this challenge hasn’t been stellar (still hanging in there are 7 pounds the last time I stepped on the scale), I realized when I made a recent trip to visit family that over the last year and a half I’ve actually come down 25 pounds total! For someone who had not been able to lose weight the whole 7 years prior to that — it’s incredible!
I knew that my shape was changing. Almost all of my pants are baggy and I can take them off without unbuttoning them. I’m actually going to have to have new pants for Nationals. Not much else has changed, but that bit of encouragement went a long way. Then I went out of town and a few relatives mentioned how good I looked. Nothing like someone who hasn’t seen you in a while to notice the difference.
So my progress is slow, but its happening! If I keep trying, I’ll eventually reach my goal weight and be able to maintain it because of the changes I’ve put into place. My point is: if I can do it, you can too! I’m the worst dieter and exerciser in the world. It doesn’t take much to beat me. 🙂 So keep trying, keep moving. 1 meal at a time. 1 exercise session at a time. You can do it! I’m sure of it!
Check in and tell us your progress too!!!!
