Hit the wall....and passed it

Sunday, June 14, 2009

So after going up and down, and up and down with my weight in the last several months I could never get below 133 lbs. It was my wall. Don't know if any of you have seen the movie "Run Fatboy Run" - it's a Simon Pegg movie. Good movie. The main character (Simon Pegg) decides, against all odds, to prove himself and run in a marathon. He hits what runners call "the wall" which is the moment of truth to decide whether one will persevere or quit. Anyways, that what I think of. I couldn't get past that number on the scale and it was driving me nuts. Then finally this last time I weighed myself I finally got past my wall! 132 lbs finally! I can do this! 12 more pounds to go.

So my biggest hurdle is the food. The exercise I can do. I've been doing well this last week, I think that's why I was able to get here. If I am to reach my goal I need to be able to control myself and learn to say no (to myself) more often. One of my biggest issues is when I do well. I have the habit of using that as an excuse to slack. I'm doing well so I can afford to have this....whatever it is. This is one of the biggest reasons it's taking me so long to reach my goal. But I can stop this thinking. I can do this!
