Stacy and I took our measurements on July 20th, and since then my weight loss has not been going how I wanted it to. I haven't gained much weight back, instead I am pretty much just at a weight-loss standstill. So I decided that I am hiding my scale until August 20th, which will be a full month to record my progress. One of the main reasons why I want to step away from the scale is because when I don't have a good weigh-in, I get depressed and then look for the nearest thing to eat. The sad part is that I don't even reach for the Doritos, I look for my Wheat Thins. Even though they are a healthier choice than Doritos eating too much of them does not help at all.
Lately I feel like I am on an emotional roller coaster, some days I wake up and I am ready to take over the world, I feel great, and I am much happier with how I look, and then there are some mornings when I literally go through my entire closet because nothing fits right. Weight-loss is definitely a mental journey as much as it is a physical one. Although I love the fact that I am losing weight and my clothes are fitting well, there is this small part of me that isn't quite ready to let go to the extra pounds. I have learned to be comfortable in my own skin, and I have definitely learned what outfits compliment my body so it is becoming harder and harder to lose the weight.
I refuse to let myself come in the way of continuing with becoming healthier. I know what I have to do, but I just felt that I would share this with you guys and let you know that everyone has struggles, and losing weight is really not easy. I have made a promise to myself and I intend on keeping it, so mark August 20th on your calendar. I'm ready to get off of this roller coaster, this ride is soon coming to an END!!!!
