Another un-perfect week.
I say that, because since I started this “lifestyle change,” I have not had one week where I do exactly what I say I’m going to.
According to my plan, I’m supposed to eat 1250 calories every weekday and 2000 on Friday and Saturday.
Has that happened? No. Has that even close to happened? Kind of. Maybe. Almost.
When I pictured myself losing weight, I pictured it being consistent and structured — Biggest Loser style. But truth is, this isn’t a secluded ranch. This isn’t time off from the regular world to lose weight. This is real life. And life comes with a multitude of distractions and worries and things that can throw you off course.
The most important thing I can do is not give up. I may not have a perfect week, but I’m doing so much better than I was 8 weeks ago. I’m improving. I’m taking steps towards a better me.
I stopped myself from binging on more than one occasion this week. I got myself to the gym. I did things that 2 months ago, I never would have done. I wasn’t perfect. But I was better.
I weighed in this morning. I didn’t lose much, but I lost my Thanksgiving gain from last week – so that’s something.
One of these weeks will be a perfect week. But until then, I’ll just keep logging. Just keep exercising. Just keep going.
