Weight lost this week: 1.6
Weight loss since October 2, 2012: 28.2 pounds
A few weeks ago I was complaining about set backs, not losing the weight that the scales should have shown, and a few other things. At times, this journey seems like it should just end with me at 139 pounds within the next week! It would be impossible, but I grow impatient and think that is the fairness that life should offer me.
This week I came to a few realizations that I hope to remember. First, life is not easy! Even when things seem easy, the choices after that can be difficult. Each day I would love to eat everything I have always wanted, but my body does not need those foods to be nourished.
The second lesson I have come to realize is that life is not fair. Sometimes I get hit with things and I wonder who's Karma I have gotten this time while they are enjoying the good life. If life were fair, we would all be rich, in great relationships, etc. The reason I bring this into weight loss is that I have some friends who can eat all day long, hardly exercise, and they look fantastic. I was not born with those genes and for this reason only, I will declare that life is not fair!
There is this guy that I kind of like and that is making this easier too. I lose the first 25 pounds without thinking about this guy, but we all know what a new relationship can do for the weight loss. We want to look better and feel better. I'm not sure what is going to happen with the guy, but I will enjoy the benefits of trying to feel a little better and look a lot better even if things with the guy.
Running is not any easier. I think since last Wednesday I may have run a total of five minutes. I think five minutes is still good considering that all of last year I may have run for two minutes! Where does all the time in a day go anyway?
Where are you at on your weight loss journey? Have you found that weight loss has gotten easier? I have been doing this since October, so I am grateful that it finally feels a little easier after all this time.
