Weight Loss Journal: Day 30-31

8:43:00 PM


Hello there lovely people!

Well I have officially made it through my first month of my weight loss journey! I couldn't be happier for several reasons and let me tell you why..

1, they say if you do something for 21 days it becomes a habit... this must be true because I feel weird when I don't workout. Also, I have built the willpower to say no to things I used to swoon over. The other day, I was starving while running errands, and instead of grabbing junk to eat, I waited until I was home to make a very good choice (as told by my veggie friend) by eating a veggie burger and sweet potato for dinner. The old me would have said " oh well, I gotta eat". But this new person, this new me... is constantly looking for better options. I still have yet to have wine too!

2, I know I am on the right track! During the end of my second week and beginning of my third week, several people gave me a much needed confidence boost! A lady from my church was walking next to me and she said, "You're loosing weight and you look amazing!". That totally made my day. Then a few days later some family members also mentioned that they could tell. When you work hard and people notice... it really changes the game!

3, I'm getting better. Not only am I making better choices but I am getting faster, stronger and better stamina. I could't see myself running three miles every Sunday and an extra day throughout the week but now, I look forward to the challenge!

4, I lost 10 lbs in 30 days! While some may look at that as a low number, I'm reminded of what my old trainer would say. " Fast or slow, progress is progress". I try to remind my self that every time I step on the scale. And while I wish that number was bigger, I remember than my goals have gotten bigger. It's just baby steps.

So! This go round, I'm going to take it up a notch! Work out harder and eat smarter, something simple but challenging. I know that if I made it this far... I can keep going!

Cheers to 30 more days!
