I received an email from my grandpa not too long ago that included these photos and more (Which was completely unusual because he usually sends me dirty jokes). It got me thinking about my weight loss journey.
Many days are an uphill battle, but it's worth the fight to get to the top!
Many times it feels like I am living on the edge and could fall off at any moment. There is always temptation, like cake, donuts, and cookies that call my name! I'm a stress and binge eater...and most of the time it's like being on the edge of a cliff trying not to fall off, but I take each day as it comes!
Each day is filled with choices. Am I gonna eat the donut in front of me or will I walk away and grab a glass of water or healthy snack instead? Will I hit the gym or sit on the couch?
The weight loss journey to a healthy lifestyle is a long and winding path. I have been up and down with the same 10-20 pounds over the last few years because I do well for awhile and then I fall off the wagon. I have to stick to the path to get all 40-50 pounds off and keep them off with a healthy lifestyle.
However, there is light at the end of the tunnel! Each day and each healthy decision I make gets me closer to my goal!
