I just wanted to share with you my weight loss journey, I will be putting out a vlog soon... in the next three weeks actually. 2 weeks ago I weighed myself and found out that I had lost about 6kilos... since then I have not weighed myself, I was disappointed with the loss because I had hoped it would be greater, thus I decided not to weigh myself until the 9th of this month. When I had lost 6 Kilos I was already working out, visualising and praying for the strength to continue.. but somewhere in the middle I lost way and reverted back to my old habbits, and I guess as I am writing this now, I realise that I wasn't really angry at the number of Kilos not lost but myself for reverting back to old habbits. Some of you may feel like six kilos in 5 weeks is good and it is, but at the time I was frustrated because I had hoped the 4 and a half weeks of working hard would amount to more weight loss and would sustain me throughout my 3 days of binge eating and being a bit lazy... I guess not.
I've gotten back on track again and since then I've been really visualizing and trying to simply enjoy the process and I have been enjoying the process! I notice all these different muscle groups I didnt know existed and my tummy is getting flatter and my clothes are getting looser. But since i'm 2 days away from weigh-in again, I notice this sort of uneasiness settling in... like maybe I cant do it, or that i will be disappointed again (this week will be week 9).
Actually its not just a feeling of I can't do it, its more a feeling of " Am I worthy?" Tonight, I'm going to pray and do some more visualizations in hopes that I get my momentum and motivation back!
I just wanted to share both the ups and downs of weight loss, If you are reading this and overweight, know that its not easy but it does get easier ( I promise!) but you will have to be the one to re-motivate and inspire yourself when you feel uneasy... and I'm still in the process of learning how..
here are the pictures of me so far... do you see an improvement?
sorry for the poor image quality! :(...
I hope this post has helped you on your journey.. stay posted for my vlog coming out in November- when I each my goal !!!!
Through visualization, the power of allowing, prayer and exercise (action to visualization)
