Whew! What a week! At one point I was up 4 pounds from last weeks weigh in!!! I renewed my determination and this morning I weighed in and found I had lost a half a pound from last week! That was a very near save!
I'm not quite sure whats going on but I'm suspecting hormones are playing a part. You all know the awful weight gain that comes with the monthly cycle. Well I had two of those this month! So I suspect I'm fighting a hard uphill battle as a result of the dreaded word "menopause." And yet....
there are no excuses! I tell myself it doesn't matter one whit because if I was in famine ravaged Africa Id lose weight no matter how many times I cycled in a month!
Some excuses are actually reasons and yet even the reasons go away when put into the bright light of day and examined under the microscope of reality. The reality is that no one came out of the concentration camps fat! There calories were so reduced that they lost weight! It didn't matter if they had been dubbed insulin resistant, menopausal, lo thyroid, whatever! They all lost weight! The same thing is true of the parts of the world in famine, so there fly all our excuses.
If you eat right you will lose; maybe not every single day or week but the trend will be downward every month. So there now you have the inside look at the peptalk I give myself!!
This is a long and hard journey and excuses will only hinder me. I need to throw them away and get real. The road ahead will be hard enough without carrying the baggage of excuses.
Now I know Ive said a lot this week about how hard this is. Look for an upcoming post at how fun this is, because really folks it is fun. I've gone from a size 2x to an XL. Now that's fun!
