Patience

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:)

  1. I totally know that feeling. I have trouble being patient sometimes, It’s like, hey I’ve been doing “insert healthy thing here” for a day, where the heck are the results?! But keep it up 🙂
