Update! I am struggling!!
I am stuck – Struggling! Stuck, going round and round, dropping and then adding weight and guess what? It’s far quicker adding than it is dropping ….who would have thought!
It’s not the program I am on, cause I have proven I can lose weight using it! Its me, why? That’s the question I ask myself daily, why? Why can’t you stick to what you started? Why do you think you can eat shite and still lose weight? Why are you not cooking good wholesome meals anymore? Why?
Okay, I have had my little rant and I need to get this stuff sorted, pre-planning meals and eating for the right reasons! I can do this……I am successful, I am 12 kg lighter than I was when I started it, I have more energy and hey, clothes are starting to look better on me too. I just need to dig in and stay focussed on what I want to achieve. A healthier and happier me, that’s all 🙂
You know, I have researched a little on why we do this to ourselves, when we find a program that’s working, we self destruct!
So, there is so much information out there on this exact question, one of the best I came across was How to Stop Self Sabotaging what resonated with me in reading the first page was the following statement!
“The solution? First, you must take a long-term view of the weight loss process. Patience and persistence are key. Look at this as a cross-country road trip. It’s not a mad dash to the next rest stop so you can turn around again. Some days on the road trip are going to be beautiful and bright; some days will be overcast. That’s life.”
I also believe I havent taken the time to celebrate &/or congratulate myself on my journey so far, 12 kg is amazing! Simple as that! I have done an amazing job…..why is that so hard for me to understand…..no reason, it just is and the more I remind myself of this achievement the more I realise how awesome this is! I need to stop seeing it as a struggle but more a challenge I am more than ready and willing to combat…!
I know I can do this and in saying that, I understand its an ongoing process, it will take time, it is a true change to my lifestyle and, I can take moments within this journey to go off course, to not follow the daily plan and guess what? I will still be okay as long as I get back on track….that’s all, stay true to the journey I started! The reason’s I started have not changed – but I am human and I will fall on and off the wagon, as such, every now and again, it’s okay!
So if you, like me are in the process of losing weight and struggling! Be kind, congratulate yourself and remember – this is a marathon, not a sprint…..good luck and I will keep you update on my struggles, but I would love to hear your stories and how you stay focussed and on track or how you celebrate your successes? Let me know and we can struggle or celebrate together 🙂
