This is gonna take for-ever

I was looking at BMI charts tonight, and I'm feeling kind of discouraged. I really want to get into the overweight category (and eventually healthy) but it just seems so far away. I would have to be under 175 in order to just be into the overweight range. That is still 50 lbs away. At the rate I've been going, at least another year.

I know I want to loose the weight slowly and surely, with proper diet and exercise, because that is the surest way to ensure that it stays off. It just feels like it will take forever sometimes. It is hard to be paitent with myself. The important thing, I guess, is to just keep trucking along and to not let my momentum slide. I have to remember that this is more than just a diet, this is a lifestyle change. I can't think that this is just until I reach goal and then I can have whatever I want.

Today's eats: /25
coffee (-1) 1/25
dreadmill (+5) 1/30
Larabar (-4) 5/30
English muffin with peabutter (-5) 10/30
Stirfry (-8) 18/30
glass of milk (-2) 20/30
English muffin with peabutter and a banana (-7) 27/30


  1. I feel your pain. When I start to think like that, I try to make myself not think about it so that I don't scare myself away from my journey.

    But yes, the slower you lose it, the more likely it will be to stay off.

  2. For sure it will take a while - but through the journey you will have learned so much about yourself, and what you can do.

    It's about patience and positivity..and generally moving forward.

    It didn't take overnight for the weight to go on - it won't come off overnight.

    Please don't be discouraged! Celebrate every victory!

  3. it's hard not to be anxious for it all to be off......but you're going to get there and doing it this way will ensure that it STAYS off, so you never have to go through this again!! Keep up the great work!
