Keep trying

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

I am trying to do this. I joined over a year and a half ago.. or just about. Lost the first 20 lbs pretty well... then stopped. I have maintained this for over a year now... and just very frustrated... but I know that to maintain is huge... but I have a goal to get to 175 before I buy any new clothes... and I want new summer clothes. HOped for a new swim suite for out trip to the water park, but that is in a few weeks, so lets plan for our vacation the end of July.... I have my 3 month follow up just before that.. so hope to have good news there also.
I am going to the Y almost every day, sometimes 2 times a day.. not seeing any progress in weight or inches, but I am seeing progress in the amount of weight I can lift, how long I can go on the machines, and that my balance is better, I know all that counts, but then I sit down, and have this shelf in front of me, that pisses me off... It will come, (or go) I know it will. I do know I can maintain what ever I do, so that is a good thing.

    The lesson I keep trying to learn… maintaining is not gaining!! – Stop and it will come back… It is just as hard to maintain it. Consider yourself victorious. I hate when I stop. We all get there… all this hard work …. Need to see results. Patience is hard to come by when you’re workin’ so dang hard. Keep up the good work and keep telling yourself … every day you don’t gain is a victory!!
