It’s been a little over 3 months since I began my new training program, and as you can see… I have had a lot of ups and a lot of downs, (Get it, Get it). In total, I am just under 18lbs lost.
The y-axis is pounds lost and the x-axis is my timeline. I have cropped out the first two numbers on the pounds side because I am weird about people knowing my actual weight. I tell myself that once I am at a number that I am comfortable with, I will be more open with that. Until then, I shall crop.
I have learned a lot. I have learned to be patient, I have learned to not obsess about the numbers on the scale, and I have learned the right ways and the wrong ways to lose weight and to get into shape.
When I first started, I would weigh myself every morning religiously. If I was up a pound or two, I would kick myself for it. It got tiring and frustrating because I would get absorbed in the numbers. Now, if I miss a day, I don’t sweat it because I know what counts is the end result and how I feel.
Patience is so important during a lifestyle change like this because there WILL be some “bad” days. What you have to focus on is looking forward to the good ones!
