But don't relax too much. Because clearly that is what I have done. I weighed in on Friday, and I have only lost .4 pounds in the last three weeks. And while I continue to run three times a week, I have clearly blown my good eating habits over the weekends. I can honestly say that is what happened. I tend to relax a little too much and throw everything I have done down the drain on the weekends. Like I "deserve" to eat. I have to switch that mentality quickly! This is a lifestyle change and food rewards are just no good!
I think everyone struggles when they commit to a change in their life and food issues really are no different. And while, no, I won't gain back the weight overnight, I have to remember that I didn't gain it overnight to begin with. It was a series of years in the making and a long path of poor choices. One bad weekend leads to two bad weekends, and on and on...
So, with that, I plan to totally get back on track. I'm ready to move to the next step which is to lose the final 2.8 pounds to put myself into a new decade!
I sincerely appreciate all of your encouragement!
