what is this secret? fake it til you make it?

I'm still hanging steady cooking at home and taking the dog out 3 times a week. Some days I don't go on our jog. Somedays I forget my lunch and grab something instead, but I'm still trying to make smart decisions. I think I have a little more motivation as I've planned a trip to San Antonio in April with my love. It's going to be during the Fiesta San Antonio which is supposed to be as big as Mardi Gras. I want to look cute and feel like I can dress up and take photos and feel confident! I'm trying and trying and trying and that's all I can do. I've lost about 7 pounds. I think maybe my motivation lays in how frustratingly slow this is.

    Planning for healthy eating is one of my challenges, as well. But there is so much more than the scale that benefits from making this change, and that is something to keep in mind.

    I think about how sluggish too much junk food makes me, or what I want my test results to look like for an upcoming doctor's appointment. What serves as the key to making better choices varies from moment to moment. Just keep striving to find that key. You are worth it!

    emoticon Look at how far you've come - down 7 lbs and still losing! I think just being aware of your moods and fighting through it is demonstrating your motivation to want to lose weight. It's not easy. I'm a slow loser but I promise it is so worth it. When I reached my goal weight it was a big deal. Now I constantly remember how long it took and how hard it was to get to this point. You will get there too. Be strong! emoticon emoticon You got this! A friend of mine always says, "It's not how much will power you have, it's how much want power"!!! Keep up the good work!
