I am sorry that I have not posted much lately. I have been struggling on my weight loss journey, and I did not want to spread negativity. It finally occurred to me that you might benefit from hearing my struggles.
Ya see, I haven’t been losing much since Thanksgiving. I’ve been hovering around the same 5 pounds all this time. After doing so well and being able to proudly report my losses week after week, I guess I got a little too proud. I started feeling like a failure for not steadily losing. I KNOW BETTER! I tell other people all the time that any change is progress and we should aim for progress, not perfection. It’s so hard to take my own advice! I have come so far and there is no shame in struggling.
I want to be a source of inspiration and I somehow felt like I was letting everyone down by not doing so well lately. I am hoping that my problems can demonstrate that no one is perfect when it comes to weight loss. I have lost a significant amount of weight but I still have my own struggles. By not reaching out, I only made things worse.
I am feeling back in control. It is a great feeling. I don’t need food as a comfort or distraction…at least not nearly as much as I did before. I apologize for not being here for those of you who actually read this blog. I will try to be more active again!
