It was a better day today. I was less hungry and didn’t have so many cravings. I think I’m getting over my rough patch. I’m rolling over four points and I’m proud of that accomplishment. It’s very weird how one day can be an incredible challenge and the next day it is easier.
Pushing through struggle is rough but getting through it feels pretty good. So the next time I’m feeling overwhelmed or like I’m losing ground, I’m going to do my best to remember today. I hope you’re having a success on your journey. Don’t give up, and if your feeling like your beginning to slip up… double down on your habits and just see what happens.
I am enough. I am doing the best I can and I am enough. If my mom were here she would say, “I’m so proud of you Jennifer. You are amazing. You can do anything you set your mind to and I love you.” I really hope whoever you are, if you’re reading this post, you take some time to say some positive about yourself.
Live your life in the body you want, believe it, you can make it happen.
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.
