I want it now. Does that sound about right. I want it now, I want to see result immediately – hey I gave up all the good stuff now reward me. I was walking around my building today during my break and those were the thoughts, the beginning of a diet is always the hardest. There are no immediate results, unless it’s headaches from giving up sugar/carbs. You may lose a pound or two, but you can’t see it (plus we all know it’s just water weight anyway). But I see this as the answer, the first days have no visual reward so we tend to cheat, have that one piece of candy, that extra helping of pasta.
I admit it, my starting weight this time around was 239. I was 219 in December. Ugggg, but a girl has to start somewhere, right? Well this is my somewhere. I started on Tuesday, what a day lets make a new start on July 4th. When I got on the scale this morning I saw 235.7. Yeah. Again, I can’t see it anywhere, but much happier seeing it go the other direction. I tell one of my friends who is doing a program that same thing, even if it’s not a large weight loss it is still moving the other direction.
Of course, I enjoy looking and reading about others who have achieved the dream of losing 100 pounds, it’s wonderful to know it can be done. I understand they did not take a magic pill, they did not wake up one morning free of all the weight. Whether low carb, calorie counting or weight loss surgery it all takes work. Of course as I was reading one of the entries I read a gal state she wanted to lose the weight now while she was still young enough to enjoy it, not when she was 50 or 60. Oh my – I am 51. I don’t feel that if I lost the weight I wouldn’t enjoy it. What does everyone else think?
So, here it is peeps, looks like I am back on track. Please feel free to comment. I need all the support I can get.
