YAY! The scale is going back down, slowly, but going down again. Woo hoo! So, I knew the slow down would happen. And it is okay. I know I can’t continue to lose weight as fast as I was. What is most important is getting healthy and bettering my life. And the changes I am making will get me there.
I realized while walking this morning that I am almost 70 pounds down. I mean it sunk in. I started this journey with wanting to lose 170 pounds. It seemed like an impossible and insurmountable goal. Right now, I am 64 pounds down. Soon, my remaining weight loss goal will be under 100 pounds. And OMG! I am 21 pounds from the halfway point. Mind blown!
I am really getting there. This is a doable thing. Not having a timeline, having faith in and patience with my body, and being consistent has helped me move through a frustrating and potentially derailing time. While new health issues have emerged, others are resolving by me eating well and being active.
I am finally feeling more like myself again. YAY!
