In desperate need of encouragement.
Ok, so my last post I had decided that I wanted to maintain for awhile, and I have done well since I put up the post. I haven't had a gain (apart from TOM-related nonsense) and being sick, so I'm very happy about that.
That said, I decided since I was less than 10lbs from my final goal I would take pictures. Well my friends, I did NOT like what I saw. I don't have pictures of me at my high weight of 190 (although I know they were much worse than these) but...ew.
Taking these pictures has made me decide to push my goal weight back to 130 which means that instead of being 9 pounds from goal I am now 24. I am still more than halfway there but...the end is much further away now.
I feel a bit overwhelmed. I know that I've already lost more than this new amount but...I had thought I was so close, you know? I know that it is worth it and that I can do it but at the same time it kills me that I've lost close to 40 lbs already and I'm still not happy.
*hugs* thank you for listening. Any words of advice or encouragement would be vastly appreciated right now.
All the love,
Back on the wagon after almost 2 years of getting lost in depression and just trying to keep my head above water. Switching up my approach and going Low-Carb. Loving it so far!
Weight as of 1/1/14: 179.4
First mini-goal: 174.4, 5lbs down
Second mini-goal:169.4, 10 lbs down
Third mini-goal: 165 (Doctor's target weight for me)
Will re-evaluate from there!
