The update on Week One.
I started this journey by weighing myself on Tuesday morning. Yes, it was a random day, but who cares?! Any day is a good day to start changing your lifestyle, right?
Week One was surprisingly easier than I thought it was going to be. I honestly thought that it was going to kill me, but it didn’t.
I think the hardest part of this weight loss journey is mental. Sometimes, I think to myself, “Is the time I spend at the gym really going to pay off in a month!?” or “Does eating this or that really help in the long run?!” It’s even worse when I get down on myself for thinking I’m not moving closer to my goal. When these negative thoughts enter my mind, I reassure myself that I made the right choice.
It has been exactly one week since I got on the dreaded scale. Today, I stepped on it hoping that I made progress.
I lost 8 pounds.
How’d I do it? Persistence, motivation, and lots of support/encouragement.
I am proud of myself for getting through Week One. It’s always tough to switch gears, but I managed to pull through. Phew! I plan on updating on Tuesdays, so stay tuned to hear about my progress or regression. Here’s to Week Two!
In celebration, I thought I’d “shed” some of my scrap stash as well with a giveaway. Who wants EIGHT new items from my scrap room?! It’ll be a fun grab bag of stuff you’ll love! Here’s how to play:
Leave a comment with some encouraging words by next Tuesday, September 14th.
Next Tuesday, if I shed more pounds, I’ll do another giveaway.
