I am so excited about this blog. In the past, like I wrote before, I’ve done many attempts to lose weight. I have always been unsuccessful. This time I feel confident that I will manage to accomplish my goals. And this blog will be my companion through the journey.
I have to constantly try to control my urge to weigh myself everyday. I know i won’t see any loss and the fluctuations may end up demotivating me.
The trouble is that all my life I’ve been heavy. In fact, even at my slimmest (and now that I look at the pictures I see that I was quite thin) I was much heavier than my ideal weight. Maybe I have heavy bones, but it doesn’t help my frame of mind to see my weight as 150 pounds even when I’m thin. The other problem is that I seem to have a very slow metabolism. My weight tends to stall after the first 5 pounds. At least with SBD I’ve managed to lose 10 pounds. I need to desperately start exercising. But I just don’t seem to be able to motivate myself. Maybe if I keep telling myself that I can do it, I will. They say, positive thinking is all it takes.
