I look at my ticker some days and it brings me great pleasure. I look at it other days and it brings me great pain.
I have lost 44 pounds since November 1, 2011 really 44 pounds in 13 1/2 months?? I wonder why this is so hard for me, why I struggle with my eating, why I struggle with health issues that make it impossible for me to exercise and why I can't just "DO IT" like others I see on the board.
I had convinced myself that 44 pounds is nothing and I should be ashamed of myself. Then I went to Walmart to the fresh fruit and veggie department and picked up two bags of 20 pound potatoes and carried them around the store. Let me tell you I do not miss that 44 pounds!!
I really needed that reality check and now I realize that I am making progress no matter how little I lose or how long it takes I will get this weight off of me eventually! But I definitely do not miss those 44 pounds.
