4/16/2021 Discouraged

Friday, April 16, 2021

I'm not discouraged by my weight or recent lack of weight loss. I'm discouraged that I feel like I've lost the fire a little bit. I went on an amazing anniversary weekend with my wife and, though we tracked everything and ate moderately and were extremely active all weekend with hikes and walks, etc, I gained a little weight and have just been feeling some ennui.

I could be walking more, making better choices at meals; I'm staying within my points, but I'm not motivated to lose weight in the way I was a while ago. It is a feeling akin to being satisfied crossed with unmotivated. I'm not giving up. I just wish I were on the hunt more--hungrier for change.

My wife is a full twenty pounds below me and seems hungrier, and I can see the effects. But right now I'm feeling pretty slumpy.

    That was my mood after Christmas. Just keep checking in and doing what you are doing. You will wake up one morning and just be ready to kick the tires and then you will be off and running. Just don’t quit.

    You feelings are regular and common. Keeping up your tracking and exercise is great!
