Best Thing I’ve Done in a While

It’s been two weeks since I really opened up about my need for a reset — a.k.a. a fresh start with Weight Watchers —  and I had to idea how good it would be for me emotionally.

  • I feel free from feeling like a failure for not losing any weight in the past year.
  • I feel like I can accept kudos for the 3.5 pounds I’ve lost so far this month.
  • I don’t feel like I have to apologize anymore for where I’m at.
  • I am learning to be okay with getting the workouts done that fit my current schedule(s).
  • I feel hopeful again.

 

Yes, I still need to be honest with myself and my need to get back to a healthier life.  Yes, it’s still a struggle some days;  in truth, it will always be a struggle for me.  And I think allowing myself this reset has been part of learning how to handle the struggle without giving up completely.

This week in our meeting we talked about taking care of yourself.  When asked, “What about this plan is working for you?” I responded, “The idea of a reset!  I’m still thrilled and encouraged by the support I got when I shared how I needed that.”

And for the first time in a long time I feel motivated to keep moving and not apologize for where I’m at in my journey.  (That’s another subject for another day. *wink*)

Thanks for stopping by!
