As I am writing this weekly post for the 34th time, I realize it has become more than just a scale update. So there may be these PSAs of sorts and I hope to add in some deeper reflections. I cannot even begin to explain all the realities of changing to a healthy lifestyle in one post.
This is one of those week's where I look at the numbers and I think, man I sucked. It didn't really occur to me while it was happening, it was just the perfect storm of scheduling, chocolate, and life all getting in my way. And it did suck, but it's over. Time to do what I know works.
|I actually had no Cadbury's (because no one gave me any) but I devoured a bunny and far too much chocolate. I think this is probably exactly how I looked when I did it.|
Okay, that "get back up on the horse" sentiment being said, I am much more reflective and positive on my weight loss here on the blog than in my own head sometimes. However, I want to be real too. So here is the truth.
There are SO MANY people trying to lose weight, eat right, exercise, you name it and it's HARD. Sometimes the world makes it look easy. Celebrities slim down in ridiculous amounts of time, TV contestants literally become unrecognizable, and that lady in the commercial or magazine lost 30 pounds in 3 weeks, sure. That is all crap.
Sure, some of those people really did lose weight, but it probably wasn't easy for them either. In many (most) cases it was literally their full-time job to drop weight, and they were also paid to do so by a company or TV network. That's not what I'm doing here. This is all me, my choices, my sweat, my actual results. I will always be honest about it because it's important. I don't want to be negative, I want to he honest.
