There are some days I feel I have made no progress, I get frustrated with myself and feel like giving up. I had been trying for weeks to hit a weight loss goal and it didn't feel like I was making any progress towards that goal until one day I just stopped. ☺ **** I stopped getting on the scale hoping for that number to pop up, stopped worrying about what everyone else thought and I stopped comparing my journey to everyone else. It was there in that moment when I realized growth was happening, and it wasn't weight loss related. A few days later I tried on a pair of jeans and they were baggy, so I got on the scale to see and I had surpassed my goal and it was because in those moments frustration and anger that I kept pushing and didn't give up on myself. **** I realized it took longer than a day to put on the weight and that over the course of ten years since having my first baby and gaining most of the weight it would take time and I was finally OK with that. I'm human, I make mistakes, I take rest days, I eat cookies and chocolate 😁and most importantly I live my life. **** I am setting the best example for my kids and all the hard work I am putting in is finally showing. I can see it and notice it in my clothes and I am more motivated to keep going more than ever. I'm sure I will continue to have rough days but it wont stop me from hitting more weight loss goals.
