This has definitely been the hardest weight loss that I have taken on. Always before, the weight has come off quickly. Not this time. It’s taking it’s own sweet time, even though I am staying committed to my calorie limit each day and slowly increasing my exercise.
But I’m close to 10 pounds…I should hit 10 pound loss by Tuesday. That’s my estimate. Right now I’m at 9 pounds gone. I try to keep reminding myself that that is 9 pounds I’m not carrying around anymore. If I continue to think that way, I should be able to keep motivated.
I can’t really tell much difference yet. I don’t think I’ll feel a difference until 20 pounds or more are gone.
I’d like to see 10 pounds lost each month throughout 2014. I don’t know if that is possible or not, but that’s my goal. That would put me at my goal weight by February 2015.
It’s frustrating. But I keep fighting. Every single day. I must replace comfort eating with comfort scripture work and prayer, and healthy activities such as exercise.
So, I’ll keep it up. I’ll keep pushing myself harder and harder. It’s a physical, mental and spiritual fight. By God’s grace, I hope to win.
