We've all heard the saying:
'It's a marathon, not a sprint'
When something is hard to do, and will take time, it's a saying that is always brought up.
It really does apply to my weight loss journey!
It's also bloody hard!!!
I'm wishing I could have a Biggest Loser coach, in my house. Someone to come in and show everyone ALL the food that is bad, then chuck it all out.
I have to say, My Thinking Slimmer pods ARE working. I'm thinking more about what I eat, how much I eat, and what exercise I can do. I find myself occupying my hands and brain with other activities, besides eating.
It's just...........It's such a bloody long journey!? I have at least 5 stone to lose (70lbs/32kg), and I am struggling to see how that can ever happen.
I have done so well (again, thanks to my pods), giving up the sweets I would regularly pick on. I have cut alcohol out of my diet, almost totally. I'm getting exercise, apart from this week, because I've been poorly
Yet the weight/inch loss is so damn slow!
Some day's I think, maybe, I should just give in to it all and eat pie, chips and gravy, from the local chippy. Get myself craned out of the house in a year or 2.
I've been given advice, until it's coming out of my ears..........hell, I could be a dietitian.
I'll keep trying though, keep battling the (many) obstacles and hurdles.
Maybe one day, it will all be worth it.
