I am back on track and it is not without all of you. Thank you for your emails, your kind thoughts and for continuing to be part of this journey. While I don’t dwell too much on the scale, nor do I even weigh in weekly, I knew that after a month of being away from it, it was time to check in. I was absolutely convinced the needle wouldn’t have moved much because, well I’m in the final stretch and all of the stuff that goes with getting 100% of the way there. So to say I was a little shocked that I’d actually lost is an understatement.
Today marks the day that not only am I lighter than I was before having my two wonderful kids, I’m lighter than the day I got married. Things may not be in the same place they were back then, but I’ve blown past all of my previous “set points.” I’m confident to know I can do this for the rest of my life. When I’m not losing hardcore, I’m maintaining, and for me that’s huge.
Wherever you are on your journey, I recommend you not getting obsessed with the scale but rather feel into your clothing, take measurements, and stop letting the scale rule your mood as it has in the past with me. The body doesn’t lose in a methodical manner. I can say that with confidence at 83 pounds off. There is a point where the body seems to adjust, where things sort of reset and then it continues on. And I think that’s different with different bodies. So depending on how much you have to lose, be willing to trust the process by focusing on sticking with your rules, staying within the lines and trust you will get results. The good news is in the beginning the body gives you the gift of fairly fast weight release, but it will continue to deliver results if you hang with it and trust.
Thank you for your encouragement. I cannot begin to describe how incredible I feel in my skin now. it’s so worth it. It’s so much a part of me now. And I’m so grateful.
