First some history: I had been on my journey for about four months. I had lost 25 pounds. Not a huge loss, but a good start. Then I hit a plateau, a stall, a weight loss brick wall. Maybe I was lax around the holidays. Maybe it was the weather turning nasty. Maybe, I was just a little bored with the journey. I simply don't know, but I started going off the proverbial weight loss rails. I didn't go crazy and start pigging out, but I was not as strict as I had been. I just wasn't fighting as hard. And it showed. I weighed several times a week and for a month I sat between 287 and 284. I wasn't really gaining, but I certainly wasn't losing either. My mind just was not in the game. I wasn't doing what I needed to do to lose, and I knew it.
About a week ago, I mentally checked back in. I knew I didn't want to give back any hard fought for ground. The pounds are too hard to lose to let them just creep back on. I had to make some changes, but the desire had to be there first. I had to WANT to lose weight again. I had to want it bad enough to give up coasting. In the video, I talk about my progress and some of the changes I made. Have you found that this game is mental? What changes did you have to make to get going on your journey. I love reading your thoughts!!!
