It was such a struggle to get there. A plethora of excuses:
It is too hard.
I don't have time.
I'll just lose some weight before I go because I am in terrible shape.
I'm going to embarass myself.
The class time is so inconvenient.
It is too expensive.
What I have realised this week is that being brave is worth it. You have to face yourself head on. You have to own your behaviour and be accountable. You can't lose weight unless you actually try.
I am so glad that I got back on the wagon because I have had a complete turn around this week. I have eaten well and after 3 days my sugar cravings vanished (thank the stars because I have been mainlining the stuff). I have been exercising. I have been tracking my food (very anal but necessary it seems). I have been drinking water.
I have been feeling more in control of myself again. And, the best bit, I have ditched the guilt.
I a due to weigh in again tonight. Even if I haven't lost a gram I reckon I will be happy. I found something this week. I found some positive energy and momentum. This is my year.
