Just plain truth.

It takes everything I have to keep being positive and keep up on my plan. I'm told to read inspirational stories, but they just make me want to cry. I read the posts on the community feed and again, I just want to cry. Why is it so many people can find success and I get no where? It is so hard to stay motivated and tell myself every day if I just keep it up eventually I will have success.
I don't eat right every day. It is truly hard to eat. Nothing sounds good. Cooking is a chore. I try to do simple things. I used to enjoy cooking. I have now cut out gluten, dairy, and all lattes of any kind. I am trying to focus on fresh veggies and fruits and protein.
I have been exercising every day. Some days it is a 15 minute wog on my treadmill. Most days it is 20 min on the treadmill and a 30 min video workout. With Spring finally here, I have been working on my yard for hours at a time. I have a 1/2 acre yard, so it is not an easy task. This weekend I'm building a fence.
I drink 8-10 glasses of water a day.
In all of this, I pray I will lose just 1 pound by July. Just 1. Then maybe things will start to move. Or, maybe I will have that cry and all the tears will shed that 1 pound.
Here's to the plan and hope.
