I had a discussion with someone about my blog here. Why do I post the negative sides of my weight loss. The success posts have more likes.
Well…. for one I am not writing this blog for popularity. I am here to write about my journey and find others along the way who are going through the same thing. I want to share ideas that work and things that didn’t work. I also want feedback from others about what works for them as well.
Most importantly…. I WILL ACHIEVE MY GOAL. Once I do there is the inevitable “how did you do it” questions. I can send them here. I don’t want it to be perfect. I want to show it is a true struggle. I think when people believe it is easy they are more likely to give up their journey. That isn’t what I want. I want people to see how many times I have failed. I am human and I am battling to become more fit. You can fail 100 times and still reach your goal. Never ever give up on yourself. This person questioning me also made me realize I may not be posting all of my disaster moments. I only have a few posts where I have negative results. That being said I will post about my down times as much as my ups.
The down side this week was I ate out of control this weekend. My parents were wanting me to try this food and that food and I did. I knew I was going over and the scale Monday said I was back up to 230. Yep, that about ruined my Monday. But after that I walked every day and made sure I logged every crumb that made it past my lips. Today the scale settled back down to 225.6. I know I can do this and I know I have been going easy on myself. Seems like when i start to do well I feel like I can stop logging food and skip an exercise here and there. I can’t do that anymore if I ever want to reach my goal. I am back in boot camp. Logging food every day and exercising. Calorie in and Calorie out!
