Sometimes when I get bored with this whole weight loss business I’ll peruse through pinterest to find something to inspire me to keep caring. When I do this I come across a lot of pictures of fit girls with wedgies (?) and I also come across sayings that are so trite that I can’t help but roll my eyes.
At the same time I find images that encourage me to keep trying.
When I was younger those images consisted of super models with long willowy limbs with no muscle definition. These days they consist of girls who aren’t skipping any meals and are the epitome of health.
When I stepped on the scale this morning it read 199.
I’m kind of annoyed because honestly this whole process is taking so much longer than I want it to.
When I lost all of my baby weight after having Bridget I cut my calories down to 1200 a day and lived on the elliptical machine. The scale moved fast but even when I had reached my goal my body was mushy.
I don’t want to be skinny fat, that’s not my goal…
I want to look good naked. Then I’ll take tons of pictures of myself with wedgies, only I’ll sport the half-wedgie because I’ve gotta keep it real.
Seriously, who as a perfectly symmetrical wedgie anyway? It’s not natural.
This time around I’m focusing on the quality of ingredients that I’m fueling my body with. I’m doing my best not to burn off the hard-earned muscle I’m trying to build by not starving myself and I know in the long run I will be better for it.
What I’m trying to achieve is a complete metamorphosis. Those kinds of transformations take time and precision.The only problem is I don’t have that kind of patience… I want what I want and I want it now! Losing four pounds a month is really annoying.
I keep calling this a weight loss journey and in a way it is but in reality I’m just trying to live life and live it right. There aren’t any short cuts for that.
So here I go… trudging along. It looks like you may be stuck with me for a while. I hope you’re up for it 🙂
