Some days, I think I should give up.
There are a lot of people who are perfectly fine with being overweight. Those ladies in bikinis with fat rolls hanging over the top, for instance. I can’t even remember the last time I had the courage to put on a bathing suit and wear it in public.
But I cannot let myself give in and just keep gaining more and more weight. Even if eating well and exercising means maintaining, I have to do it. For Libbie. For me. For my heart and my health.
I’ve always felt like I had to starve myself to lose even a pound. My body clings to the fat like gum to hair.
I think I might wait a month, or til the end of the 10 weeks to weigh myself again. I just can’t deal with it and I need to focus more on drinking water, eating the right things in appropriate quantities, and exercising.
I am so glad there are people truly running with it and losing because of this contest! I wish I were one of them. Life circumstances the last few weeks have kept me completely off-focus. But there’s nothing stopping me from continuing to take little steps toward the finish line.
I may never be 135 pounds. But I can be healthier tomorrow than I am today.
