a hard fought battle for such a small victory

Thursday, July 26, 2018

I broke down, gave in to curiosity, and got on the scale this morning.
I was satisfied. Not overly joyful, but definetly not mad.
I have lost 13 lbs since the last time I set my weight loss tracker on SP.
That was June 9th, so basically I have lost 2 ish lbs a week....which is pretty average I guess.
I had lost 7 lbs since July 1st.
That is slow in comparison to so many others who are doing low carb.
But I guess it is a loss and I will take it.
I am still 15 lbs away from my FIRST goal.
Which will bring me back to the low number I had in Nov 2016.
So, what I am doing now is re-losing the weight I had already lost and gained back.
I guess it is what it is, I am a slow loser and I just have to accept that.
But its been so tough, I have eaten less and cut more carbs and fat grams than I ever can recall and still such a slow weight loss.
I am just hoping this is the jumpstart phase and soon my metab will kick in and I will begin to lose more.
I guess a loss is a loss is a victory no matter how small.
