Holy COW....

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

So 5 weeks into this, 24 pounds lighter, and I am able to walk 3.3 miles at a times. This is amazing for me. I still am struggling with some pain in my shins and occasionally my knee, but I'm doing well.

I am starting to become accustom to this life style change. I know I have to walk, I know I have to eat right, I know I HAVE to drink all of my water. I know that I cannot have free days (at least not yet) and I know I cannot over eat protein. I am starting to become more and more confident and can see the weight loss changes in my clothes, and face.

I feel strong. This is the longest I have done this with out giving up. I know its sad but true. This for me is a HUGE mile stone. I am making myself healthier. I am forcing myself to walk even when I DO NOT want too. (Sunday it was like 88 with like 95% humidity and I still walked three miles)

My mom encourages me now more then ever, My brother walks with me on a regular basis as well as my Boyfriend who is getting more exercise then he has gotten in a long while as well (He's not that over weight but it still does him good too!!) My Boss thinks I'm amazing that I lost this much weight....

And still I feel like I will Fail... Like "so what if you have lost 24 pounds, you were this weight once, what does it matter" My negative thoughts rush in faster than I can realize some times...

So still I press on... My goal in sight and now feeling like it just may be with in reach.

Keep on Keeping on, Heather, Keep on Keeping on!

    I understand your battle with the negative thoughts but YOU ARE defeating them. You are making great progress You are averaging 4lbs a week. That is FANTASTIC. Just tell those negative voices to shut - up. Don't be polite. Tell yourself that those thoughts are unacceptable. You deserve all the success you are having and YOU are the one doing it.
