As I started the second month of my weight loss journey, life seemed to get in the way. While I didn’t gain much weight back from the 7lbs that I lost the month earlier, I didn’t make any additional progress to that loss. I know I shouldn’t spend too much time looking at the scale but it is my nemesis. I know I shouldn’t have let it derail me but I’ll be honest it isn’t very motivating to put the work in and not see any results.
I know that now that I’m 52, losing weight is not an easy task. I have pre-menopause to deal with. I also have finding the time to workout with a schedule that changes every day to look at. But honestly these are just all excuses my mind plays on me to delay my results. I never realized that your body and mind really work against you if you aren’t focusing on those little voices in your head. Your body likes to be at a weight and when you lose the weight your mind is like – “hey eat some more so we can go back where we were.”
This month to me was ok – at least I didn’t fall completely off the wagon and gain it back plus some but I had 60 lbs to lose and now have 53lbs to go. One thing that I’m getting excited about is being part of a new test group that my team is doing. 1500 people have signed up and will help hold each other accountable. The goal is to get a jump start on weight loss prior to the holidays. More to come in my next post.
