It’s easy sometimes to feel discouraged and want to give up. That’s pretty much how my day is going. I want to eat anything and everything, and not care about how it’s going to affect my body. Some days I get tired of tracking and weighing my food. I want to just eat without having to think about how many points it is or how it will affect my weight loss. I wish I could be one of those people that just eats whatever and doesn’t gain weight.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t blessed with high metabolism so I just need to suck it up and keep going. No matter how much I want those donuts or whatever it is I’m craving, it is not going to get me to my goal.
I had a major slip up today and ate a bunch of cookies. But I owned it and tracked it. There are going to be times where I feel defeated and feel helpless to this food addiction, but I have to keep going. I have come too far to give up now.
Tonight is my weigh-in and although I’m sure it’s not going to be as good as I want it to be, I have to tell myself over and over and that it’s okay if I don’t lose over 5 pounds a week. Even a 1 pound loss is an accomplishment. I need to stop beating myself up over it and be proud of how much I’ve lost so far.
