Today was a “hungry” day. I spent a lot of it having to examine my hunger cues. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been eating more, or maybe it’s because it was a dreary stay inside kind of day. Either way, I had to call up a great deal of self-discipline to stay on track. I really hope that tomorrow is an easier day. It’s strange that even after all this time and success some days are still challenging.
So, if you are on a weight loss journey, and find yourself struggling just know, you’re not alone. This is not a quick fix situation, there are no gimmicks, and anyone who tells you that it’s easy is just selling you a bill of goods. This is hard and it takes effort and commitment to be successful – but, it’s worth it. So, keep going and remember you are worth it!
y featured image is not from today. Today, was dreary, wet, and cold. Instead, I conjured up a picture from December of last year. It is so beautiful and makes me feel connected to a deep sense of wonder. This tree grew from a seed a small insignificant seed into this stalwart giant. A fixture on the landscape to guide my way home.
It turns out I needed a little inspiration. I am finding that I am hungry and am looking to graze. I have not let that get away from me. But the past few days are rough! I am reminding myself to ask if this is internal or external hunger I feel. I am stirring away from sugar and am trying to eat a variety of foods. I only have 7 extra SmartPoints left (with today’s 3 point roll-over) and I don’t love that I’ve used so many points pretty early into my week. Especially, since I’ll be traveling to Houston.
This will be a little tricky but hey, I have you my virtual team on this journey with me. Believe it, that helps! I think there is just these “hungry” kind of days. Days that I have no business really being hungry because I’ve eaten and when I reflect on my overall being I’m not really hungry, I’m just craving something… I did, however, say no to these tonight:
Three reasons to be happy today: 1. I am happy about saying no these. 2. I am happy that I am working towards Lifetime status. 3. I am happy to know that so many people love me and that I love so many people. Life is crazy, but life is also very extraordinary.
My last words tonight are to hold on to all the beauty. Celebrate all the small wins. Be interested in yourself so you may be interesting to others :). You are worth all the effort this journey requires from us. I’m very proud of you, you are amazing, and don’t you forget that! More tomorrow.
