I've come so far but SO far to go....

I'm in a grumpy, bad mood today. I shouldn't be. Today was my weigh in day. I lost 1.5 pounds, so my total is up to 54.5 pounds. Today is also exactly 14 months since I started this. I'm doing well. I know that. But I'm still bummed.

I have about 70 more pounds to lose. I'm aiming for 1.5 pounds a week, which means it will take close to a year before I get to my goal weight. It just seems SO LONG. Week in, week out, weighing in, counting calories.

It just seems so daunting. Well, that's not true. I don't doubt that I can do it. Just such a long road. And I know if this is going to work, it needs to be a lifestyle change. Maybe that's the part I'm having a tough time grasping.

Why can't I concentrate on how far I've come, rather than on how far I have to go??

  1. Don't you wish you could just ignore your body for weeks at a time? because once I realized I was actually making progress, I WANT MORE and I'm hot happy when I don't notice more changes. UGH! Yeah, stinks, but wow, I wanna be at 54 pounds, like, tomorrow! alas, I might be at 8, but I just started....doesn't make it easier tho.
