From a Facebook post dated January 24, 2019
It’s hard to try again when you didn’t succeed the first time. Something I was well aware of as I started Weight Watchers last May for the FOURTH time. And I was even more afraid of failing when I hit the 70 pound mark.
You may ask “Why on earth would you be afraid of failing when you’ve just lost 70 pounds?” The answer is: That is right about the place where I’d lose focus and quit every other time I’ve attempted to lose weight using Weight Watchers.
...this time, it would be different.
I have been determined though, that this time, it would be different. That no matter what, I won’t give up and I won’t stop until I get where I’m supposed to be. But that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been hard. The last 3 or 4 weeks have been brutal. I’ve struggled to stay on track and not lose sight of why I’m working so hard to lose weight.
I have been so happy with the results I’m seeing in the mirror and I just plain feel better. I’ve been repeatedly telling myself that the hard work is worth it.
Well, today I hit a personal milestone. As of this week I have lost 82 pounds since May (I lost 5 pounds in the past week 😆). Again you might be wondering why the random number of 82 is a milestone. It’s because I have now lost more weight than I have in any other previous weight loss attempts. I’m also now only 18 pounds from reaching that huge milestone of 100 pounds down (ignore the squealing you hear in the background).
I’m more convinced now than ever before that I’m going to finish this race and make it to my goal. Whatever project you’re working on...whatever goal you’re working towards. Don’t give up. Believe in yourself! If I can do this, you can do what you’ve set out to accomplish too. 💕
