This course to find myself is definitely not a direct route, but it continues to move much like my weight loss journey. I had a slight gain last night (0.8) making my current weight 199.8, but I know I did not do well with my water and all last weekend. I’m not going to let it shake my resolve. I know this journey is a process. To that end, I was watching one of the videos on YouTube from Mind Over Munch talking about “Having a Healthy Relationship with Food”. This spoke volumes to me and I realized that even when I am not at my goal weight that my habits have truly changed. I won’t say that I never reward myself with food, but I am trying to do better about that. I try to portion foods out or have smaller portions rather than tell myself I can’t have something. I don’t know about you, but if I tell myself that I can’t have something, that seems to be all I want. I don’t want to live in a world where certain foods are “off-limits” because that can stress me out. Despite not being at my goal weight, I can definitely look back and see changes have been made. That leads me to believe that I can make it to my goal weight because I am making lifestyle changes. What has changed for you since you started this journey?
I know that there will be ups and downs (yes, that may include weight) in this journey, but it is definitely worth it. I am worth it. I have gone down the road of losing weight because I haven't eaten or eating and then taking a laxative. I am a work in progress.
Have a happy Friday and fantastic weekend!
