Day 210 - like Sisyphus

Friday, July 19, 2019

Sometimes it feels like I live the life of Sisyphus. Pushing the bolder up the hill, only to have it roll down again. In the past, I would have pretty much given up by now, frustrated with a plateau and my focus seemingly trailing off slowly.

I have to remind myself that this battle is not won in a day, but takes dedication and commitment. I am positive I can stick it out, get over the hump and stay the course.

Overall had a good and productive week, but would like to start seeing progress and payoff for my efforts. I know if I stick with it, things will take a positive turn again.

Positive about the weekend. No plans to eat out, so I can stick with my planned meals. Will put some extra effort in doing some work around the house and not sit and watch TV. Mostly I don’t actually watch TV, but I can spend hours reading, losing track of time.

Not much planned for the weekend, so want to make sure I make it count. I know what to do, so let’s just do it.....

Day 210 - 65lbs down - only 135lbs or 390 days to go to 225

I WILL succeed, because I choose to, because I CARE!

C - COMMIT + Plan every day - I choose to see every day as a new opportunity!
A - ACT on my plans consistently - I choose to take the initiative, I own this!
R - RECORD + REVIEW daily - what worked, what didn’t - Celebrate every victory, learn from any challenge!
E - EMBRACE the journey - I choose to own every decision and every choice and will not be derailed by one challenge, by one bad choice!

    Just heard a physician speaking yesterday and he said the most amazing thing (mostly because I've heard this several times this week from people of the backgrounds to carry some sway to their opinions) summing it up he basically said if you are doing everything right and you are not dropping pounds and/or inches, YOUR BODY IS HEALING before letting go of more. It was a totally freeing thing to me to hear it. Okay! Now I'm patiently waiting for the healing to finish before getting on with the next stage and continuing . . .

    Hang in there! You can do this!

    I agree. It is tough to follow the program and see little change at times. Happens to me a lot. Keep at it. You will succeed.

    It's hard when you are doing everything right and not seeing the results. You have a great attitude. I totally agree that you will get over the hump. emoticon
