There are two confessions that I have for you all this week:
1.I gained 2lbs
2.It doesn't really bother me.
When you are writing a blog about weight loss these aren't really the things you highlight. But I promised myself at the beginning of this all that I wanted to become a more open person. Generally speaking, I am very closed. Even my best friends don't know a lot about me. I want to learn how to let out those things that I am thinking. I NEED to learn.
So when I stepped on the scale and looked down between my feet and it read 209.2 I just stood there for a moment to think...
I could have had several reactions to it.
I am putting in so much work into this and this is what I get? Why do I keep going when this isn't going to get me anywhere?
But instead I just stood there.
I turned around and looked in the mirror. I studied my body and my face. Instead of choosing to see all the things I don't like, I looked at where I am going. I don't see it everyday but my body IS changing. I have worked so hard. I have so much more energy and I actually look FORWARD to working out. That is something I never thought I would feel.
I am trying some new things trying to break this plateau and apparently they aren't working. But the most important thing that I know is that this isn't easy. I will have days and weeks like this for the rest of my life.
So to you and your own journey I wish you days of success and happiness. For those not so successful days I wish you contention with how far you've come and how far you will go.
Live Light, Travel Light, Be the Light.
