Day 42 - Long Week

Well I have only lost a pound this week. But considering that I spent the weekend eating WAAAAY off plan and had a bad lunch yesterday I think a pound is pretty good. I haven't been working out at all and I really need to get back into that. I got really burnt out because I am getting so tired easily from my medications and my body still trying to heal from surgery and cancer. All and all I am really happy with the progress I am making although at times I feel frustrated that it isn't a faster process. I have to continually remind myself that slow and steady means a life long change.

Do you ever find yourself in the middle of something wondering about how it will feel to reach your goal? Sometimes I feel like it is so far away that I will never make it there. Sometimes I think that even if things go perfectly and I get to my goal weight it will take too long or I won't be happy. When you are trying to lose weight a year feels like a century. I keep reminding myself that as soon as school starts and I am facing graduation and more responsibilities it will fly by. Hopefully this is when I will start noticing the biggest difference in my body. I did see a friend yesterday that I had not seen in awhile. She noticed that I looked smaller. Those little things always seem to be so encouraging. Until next time.....send good weight loss vibes my way!
