It’s been almost a week since I posted – but I haven’t forgotten about you, dear blog. It’s simply that it’s been a slow news week! Until today.
As of this morning I can officially say that I’ve lost 10 lbs! It’s been a long road – I’ve been going to the gym since November and for a month I didn’t see any change at all in my weight, then I would see half a pound here and there. Certainly nothing dramatic and it felt very slow. I have 30 pounds left until my goal weight. At this rate of 10 lbs every three months, I’ll be at my goal weight in October – which really doesn’t sound too slow and it’ll be just in time for family vacation in Gatlinburg.
However, getting to the gym lately has been a battle. I fully recognize now that working out is not a one time decision, it’s a daily decision. Even though I never regret working out, it seems as though getting dressed and into my car takes every ounce of effort and mental will power that I have. I know my weight loss is directly related to going to the gym, so why is it so difficult to get there?
