This new way of looking at weight loss is THE BOMB! I just keep striving to do better and I keep actually getting better! Since I only weigh-in once a month, I was hopeful because I could see an improvement, but it didn't dawn on me that I actually could drop below the barrier that has been my nemesis since like forEVER. It's so good to be back!
I've altered my workout schedule a bit, but in the long run, I think I'm coming out ahead because I don't skip. While I'm working, I workout every 1.5 days, rather than everyday. It's amazing how much more doable that is! I can walk at night, then hit the gym at 4:30am a day and a half later. It's fantastic. I've also given up on trying to run. At least for now. The resulting pains just weren't worth it. I have quickened my walking pace. I'm all the way up to a 21-min mile. Hey, that beats my 24 minute ones in the beginning!
So, if you've been starting over again and again, trust me ... it will eventually work. I started over for over 10 years and I'm finally allowing it to work. And it is working! It is!
