So I realize that I have not posted for the past couple of weeks. I just really haven't felt like I had anything to share to be honest with you. No I have not given up or anything, I have just kind of settled into my routine and there is really nothing exciting to say about it. I am eating healthy and exercising regularly and losing weight slow and steady. I am now one week shy of four months and am down 64.4 lbs. I am averaging about 2.5 lbs. a week right now, which I am happy with, but I would really like to be in the 3-4lb range. I will definitely take what I can get though.
I am currently getting ready for my 5K that I will be running on May 19th. I have definitely seen an improvement in that area and am actually kind of excited to do it now. Another fun thing is that I have found several more articles of clothing that fit me again. That for me has been a big help in motivation. When I look at myself I still just see this big fat girl, and it is hard to see the progress when looking in the mirror. I know I am doing great and making good progress, but it is just hard to break away from that mental image I have of myself. So to be able to fit into smaller clothes has been a big help in realizing that it really is happening.
This past month I also took second place in a contest they were doing at Sponsor Me Slim. I won an ageloc galvanic spa system which I am super excited to start using. My face and skin could definitely use some help.
I am really trying hard to just live normal and not think so much all the time about what I am doing. Obviously it takes a lot of thought and time, but I am trying to really live my new lifestyle and just be OK with what it is. I have realized that this is something I will forever struggle with, but if I can get comfortable with the idea that this is just how it is, then I feel I will have more success over the duration of my life. Overall I am feeling better every day and looking to the future with excitement at all the things that will be mine. Thanks again to everyone for your continued support!!
