This journey is not easy. Maybe it’s because I’ve done the whole yo-yo thing before and I know the challenges of maintaining weight once I reach my goal. I don’t want to put back on a single pound. I don’t ever want to see the label inside of my clothing go up in size again. I’m not sure this journey gets easier. All I know is that right now, it’s a struggle. I get up every morning and have to consciously make the decision to stick to my meal plan. Maybe someday it won’t take so much effort.
Fortunately, I didn’t fall of the bandwagon completely. My eating was still semi-decent, thanks to Nutrisystem, so I managed to maintain my weight this week. Not the worst week I’ve had, but I really want to get to that 20lb weight loss mark. Just 2 more pounds to go. I feel like I’m that little train in Logan’s book, “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can”. If you don’t see a tweet from me at the gym this evening, feel free to tell me to get my butt off the couch.
