The one thing I struggle with most while I’m on this weight-loss journey is my patience – or my lack of it. I believe my metabolism is really screwed up right now because I’m not seeing the number on the scales go down after 4 days on my plan. I was seriously ticked off this morning but instead of reaching for the food that just isn’t good for me I decided to go walk on the treadmill. Yay me!
I have to let go of the past triumphs in my yo-yo dieting history and acknowledge that it is harder at this time in my life. I realize that I have to crank up my body’s engines and the only way I can do that is by walking. I will confess that this morning there was a bad angel on my shoulder telling me that I should take a day off. I almost listened to it and then I remembered…I DON’T WANT TO BE THE FAT SISTER ANYMORE!
Now I’m going to log my walking time (20 minutes) on my food/exercise journal. I’m going to reward myself with some new tunes to listen to while I walk:)
