Today i woke up feeling sluggish. Not really wanting to go to work after the long weekend. Just really wanting to turn over and go back to sleep. I almost didnt even recognize my alarm lol. Today is my day to workout in the morning so i got dressed for that and once i was dressed i looked at myself in the mirror and to my surprise i actually looked smaller, different. I was in some workout clothes i hadnt put on in a while so some of the changes were finally noticable. Today is also the day i weigh myself. I am proud to say i have finally got over the 20lb mark. i am now 21 lbs lighter, which makes me 225. I was estatic! I had been hovering very close to the 20lb mark for around a month and it was very discouraging.
Honestly i really hadnt felt like i accomplished much up till this point. I just had this idea in my mind that anything less than 20lbs was nothing or not really a big deal. although my trainer and others who continued to encourage me (thanks btw) said otherwise, it just still didnt seem like much. maybe 20lbs just sounds substantial. I feel like i have accomplished something now, like all this working out isnt for nothing. It gives me the motivation to keep on going. i was really considering just giving up cause i hadnt made any progress during the month of august, just maintained. but a friend told me the other day that since i was changing my lifestyle as opposed to doing just a fad diet or pills that it will take time. this of course i knew but it was something i needed to hear and then my weightloss since last weigh in just provided confirmation that i can do this and reach my final goal.
So i continue to press on ....
