MWLISS: Middle

Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Middles are difficult. Ideally, I’d try to get through the middle of my weight loss journey so I can cruise to the end. 
I am often reminded that it takes grit to lose the amount of weight I’ve lost. I also know that there are obstacles on my way. While I'm not immune to them, I can be assured that many have done what I am trying to do. They all assure me that it can be done. 
I am trying not to take lazy shortcuts. I refuse not to follow the plan. I refuse to follow a fad diet. Instead, I can find smart shortcuts that will help me stay on plan and succeed. 
I am learning from my mistakes. I am becoming an expert on Cintia. I know what to do to get through busy weeks. I know how to manage stressful weeks. I know how to navigate vacations. I know how to go to different restaurants and parties. To me, this makes the process priceless. I get to live in the world, with the body I was given. The world does not stop because I’m on weight watchers. I need to learn to live well in it. 
I am trying different recipes as well as different approaches to stress management. The goal is for me to manage stress, not to way around. So far, so good.
I still think I can reach my goal in 2019. This is the year I decided to put health first. I am making changes and I know the results will come. 
This past week I lost weight (yes!) I learned not to "eat my feelings." I learned (again) that if I track, I lose weight. I also learned that I have what it takes to reach my goal. Thanks for joining me in this journey!
