I started a group weight-loss challenge six weeks ago
And the goal I set for myself was losing 15 pounds in eight weeks.
Well, there’s two more weeks to go in that challenge
And I’ve lost a grand total of 2 pounds.
I was down 5 pounds at one time, but as of this morning?
Two pounds in six weeks.
Big waste of time?
Part of me — Mr. Negative — says, yes, total waste of time. Two pounds in six weeks?
Wow … congratulations (with eye roll)
Sure, I didn’t try as hard as I could. I didn’t do everything I know how to do to lose weight. I ate crap some days. I snacked late at night more than once.
I’m a certified professional trainer with specialization in senior fitness and nutrition.
I should know better.
I should have more discipline.
I’m also a human who struggles and has issues.
And, in spite of myself, I’m still down 2 pounds!
That’s a positive, ain’t it?
Of course, it is.
If any of this sounds familiar, don’t beat yourself up.
Do the best you can each day.
Then do it again.
