I had an incredibly hectic Friday. I sat down to write my blog post, but with only 15 minutes until I had to leave to the baseball fields I wasn’t able to finish. So, I’m a day late and a dollar short. I am still using my weight from Friday morning.
Nothing gained nothing lost. That about says it all. But, I am feeling really optimistic. Guess what happened to me?!?! I FOUND THE WAGON!!!!! I don’t know why they call it a wagon. I’ve ridden in a wagon before. It’s a bit bumpy but quite pleasant. I think weight loss is more like the hand carts that were used by my pioneer ancestors. This is no easy ride. I am pushing and pulling and working for every step. I counted every calorie I ate starting Monday. I am feeling more confident in my ability to eat right and really stick to my calorie goal. So although, I didn’t lose I feel like I am turning a corner. I am choosing to look back at what I have accomplished and not beat myself up. It’s a journey. It’s MY journey. I do have to make an effort not to compare myself to others and to remind myself not to be sad at my own pace. But, I feel good about what I am doing. I am not giving up. And though I may not be down this week, I’m also not up. Somehow I’m really excited for next Friday. Instead of getting sad, I’m getting mad. I feel more motivated and more determined than ever.
P.S. I weighed myself this morning and I'm down today :) I'm really hoping for a big week. My psyche needs it!!!!!!
