The weight loss journey. It's Monday and I'm in dire need of losing weight. I've had four kids so I've gained and lost weight in the past. I know what will work for me. I just need to do it and do it everyday.
My biggest challenge: MENTAL! I have to fight this everyday. I have horrible negative self talk which eventually leads to either giving up or cheating so often that I get so far off track, there is no going back.
I'm usually great the first two weeks, but today I am struggling right out of the box. I know I HAVE to do it, but I don't want to do the work it takes. And maybe that is not all it is.......maybe I would do the work if I could be guaranteed this would be the LAST time. I know it doesn't work that way, but I've yet to emotionally accept it. More than having to do the work, I HATE the yo-yo of it.........the lose weight, gain it back, lose, gain, lose, gain.......etc.
So anyone out there got any sage advice for me? I need the help....I've weighed and measured myself.....and I'm one coke away from failure on the first day :)
