It was a hard week that I pushed through and dropped another 1.8 lbs. The weather is warmer and there is hope to see some sun so I think this week will be a lot easier. I know I feel so much more in control now with there being far less "OMG I want to swan dive into an all you can eat buffet."
So if you are struggling and don't know how to get a grip, know this: everyone struggles, even those of us that have been at this a long time. The key is to never give up. Take each day as they come and focus on doing all you can on that day. I'm not perfect. But I am still down 145+ lbs from my highest weight. As long as you never quit and learn from your mistakes you can do this.
On the other side of this weight loss coin there is also a little matter of a 5K to be run on Saturday. I'm ready. The plan is to take it slow and steady doing run/walk intervals and a couple of 5 minute walks thrown in about 1/3 and 2/3 of the way through. This is my first official run so there is no pressure other than I don't want to finish last.
20 weeks back on plan and 52.6 lbs lost.
12 weeks on the DDDYC and 26.6 lbs lost.
Onward and Downward y'all!
