Contemplation on this weight loss journey

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

I started this journey after I had lost weight about 6 years ago, got off track and regained it plus more. I restarted on the 26th of November. Things have been going well and i had lost 10kgs a couple of weeks ago. I have regained 2 and maybe 3 i have not weighed myself for a few days. My exercise endurance has increased significantly I went from walking a few thousand steps to jogging for 11 ks at a time which is great. But my eating is so off track right now. I am starting to eat stuff i had stopped eating and cannot seem to get back on track. This got me thinking about this weight loss journey. Do I really want to loose 20 more kgs and have to maintain at very low calories that i may not be able to sustain? Takong into account the ups and downs of this journey should I chase a certain date to have lost the weight by or should i let this process take as long as it needs to as long as i am on this journey? Would that not lead to complacency? Is there anything wrong with my size now that i have lost these kilos and i look good in clothes again? Am i chasing a number on the scale because i am struggling with accepting myself the way that i am? I am currently not unhealthy and i look very good in clothes and I think my BMI healthy range puts me at a very low weight thay takes so much to sustain. A part of me remembers how great it felt when i was thin but it also remembers how i was constantly afraid of regaining the weight and i was on this constant circle of eating well and beinging. Am i really willing to pay the rent of sustaining that low rate or must i just keep exercising and eat reasonably healthy and just accept and let my body find a range that it can sustain without the total focus that it takes to loose weight? I have decided to quit my job and start my own business and the focus that i need to give to build my business needs to come from some of the focus i give to this weight loss journey. Because if we all have to admit this weight loss management can be a full time job. Lots of questions and not many answers

    Angel.. It don't take a lot of time.. I started to do three times I try a day to slip in a full day worth of exercise in.. I do a video 5-19 minutes a day and I tried it before I started to pt in on the site and it really helps.. It also helps when you switch things up.. a walk and ride or a dance.. mix it up.. your boy if you do the same thing will really get board and sometimes we just want to give up so be like my pups mix things up and keep on going.. and get the water down that helps... You need to keep hydrated.. So what are you waiting for lets go... In His Live and Grace Just Me emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
