For the last 3 weeks, I have been a little bit (a lot) lazy with what I have been doing. I had the show then I got hit with such bad allergies and what I am positive was pneumonia again, I didn’t work out, and I didn’t feel right. I haven’t paid attention to what is gluten free and what is not on top of not feeling well… so I feel bloated, I feel uncomfortable, and I need to get my head in the game and not stray from it.
With being on spring break this week, I’ve also been a lot less active than I normally am at work. so I’m sure that didn’t help either. I’m spending the rest of the night focusing on prepping food for the week so I have everything ready. I am going to do simple start again since I know it works. I have oatmeal I can make for breakfast, lots of fruits and veggies, so it shouldn’t be hard to make some meals out of it.
When I get in these moods and funks, I need to just REMIND myself how far I HAVE come already. The weight loss process is not perfect. People gain, people lose, people stay the same. That goes for anyone whether you’re losing weight or not. Nothing is ever perfect and it’s going to be a long process, but it is possible to get to where I want to be.
Never in a million years did I ever think that I’d be able to lose 45 pounds. Never. While I still have a lot to go, I think that I will get there. I have the drive to do it.
Like I said, I have my moments where I am not perfect and my journey takes all kinds of roller coaster twists and turns, but I have been able to SUCCESSFULLY lose 45 pounds and keep it off, no matter how long it takes. I may not be at my goal yet but ever healthy meal I eat and every workout I do gets me one step closer.
These pictures are here to remind me that even when things get hard, keep in mind that I have made significant progress already, and whether it takes 1 more year or 3 more years, I will get to my goal.
