A year from the month that I started my journey I am officially one pound away from goal. I almost can’t believe it. My message to you is this, power through the challenges. Sometimes you may have a perfect week and not lose an ounce or worse gain! Other weeks you may lose when you were sure you would gain, and you feel like you’re getting away with something. You cannot ever control the scale. When you understand (and believe) this the journey becomes about something greater than the numbers. It sounds so phony, but weight loss has very little to do with the scale. Next week if I don’t lose my pound, it will be ok. It will be ok because I know I eventually will lose it. This is really happening. Amazing.
