It has been about two months now.
Two months and I haven't lost any weight. I've gone down, but come back up. I have teeter-tottered and flip-flopped down to 162 and back up to 167. BUT I have yet to break the plateau. In fact last week I had a friend visiting and I gained 4 pounds! Plus, I haven't even been to WW in almost 3 weeks.
But the good news is- even though I have been enjoying the "in-between" I haven't lost sight of my goals. And I haven't stopped weighing myself and mostly- I HAVENT GIVEN UP.
Last Christmas I had a bit of a breakdown. I had lost almost 20 pounds, then gained 7 of it back during the holiday. I was about ready to throw in the towel. I cried in front of my family and decided right there and then that I would get back on the plan.
And then I lost almost 20 pounds.
This weight loss journey has had ups and downs, but I feel like I'm in a better place than I was at Christmas. I feel eek! happy with myself. I'm actually enjoying the "in-between". I mean, it's my life, I should be!
And now that I took a bit of a break, I'm ready to try do this again.
And this is the plan:
- Go to Weight Watchers meeting tomorrow.
- Exercise tomorrow and get back to my exercise program next week
- Start a weight training program
- No (and I repeat) No eating out next week.
- TRACK and follow the WW guidelines.
- PRAY for strength- and visualize myself succeeding.
I am ready to lose the next 20.
See you lighter!
