I don’t have much time to write today, but I want to share a quick thought with regards to where I’m at right now in my weight loss journey.
I know that I could settle here as well. For a lady who has not been able to stay this close to a healthy weight for more than a year in the 18 years she’s been an adult I’m doing awesome to maintain between 164-168 like I have been the past six months.
But while this is good it’s not good enough for me.
If I was eating great and do everything I could I’d seriously consider settling at this weight, but I’m not. Settling where I am would be easy, but it would not be my best effort.
Yes, I have considered upping my goal weight from 140 to 150 lbs. In fact, lately I’m thinking I’d just like to be comfortable in a size 12. I think I’d be okay with that, but even 150 is another 15 pounds away.
I have been struggling again with overeating and snacking too much and too often. Not often enough to cause large weight gains, and thankfully I seem to reign it in the next day/meal most times, but it’s been a tad frustrating. I’ve even had to remind myself a few times lately that food is not the answer.
Yes, no one would blame me if I settled where I’m at, but I know I’ll never be content if I haven’t done my best.
Good is fine, but best is better and I refuse to quit or give up hope of losing more weight until I’ve truly given it my all. I will not settle for a half victory in my relationship to food.
So, that in a nutshell is where I’m at. Thanks for stopping by!
