I'm closer than I was!

Thursday, August 20, 2015

I was just lamenting over the fact that it has taken me 10 months to lose a little over 40 lbs. I know that my age, menopause and slow metabolism from years of yo yo dieting have been a big factor, plus a few stalls and slip ups. I know others who have lost much more in the same amount of time or less. I also know some who threw in the towel and quit! I didn't/won't quit. That's not an option. I have lost 40+ freaking lbs! I am more than half way to my goal, I can fit 2 people in my nurse scrubs, I can jog 2 miles without stopping and I couldn't claim any of that 10 months ago! So...no more complaining. If it takes another 10 months to reach my goal, so be it. I'll be closer than I was yesterday!

    Even when you get to goal, you have to keep on keeping on. I was told to use the time it took to lose the weight to learn to love the process. 40 pounds is amazing!!

    Wow, that's fabulous. I'm even slower than that! So I see that as terrific.

    I've been told the slower you take it off the less chance of regaining it as you are changing you eating habits also.
