Firstly I want to apologise for not posting a Feel Good Friday blog post for the last couple of weeks now. Today I am going to be writing about something that’s very close to my heart at the moment, which is weight loss. As some of you may know a while ago now I started Weight Watchers, I was ridiculously proud at myself for losing 3 stone, also surprised! For a while now I have fallen off the band wagon and not been as motivated as I was, which means I have put on some of the weight I lost, not all of it though, which I suppose is a positive. But that’s exactly what I want to talk about, being positive and looking forward. I have been feeling so angry at myself for not carrying on with my hard weight loss work and keep thinking about how far I could have come by now, if I had kept going. I am now frustrated that I have to lose the weight that I had already lost, it seems like such a waste of time, I’ve been there done that, I just want to be where I was and lose more!
I am sure a lot of you guys relate to what I am going through, right? Loosing weight is not easy but instead of being frustrated with myself I need to look at this differently, and if you reading this are also facing similar problems I think you should to! Although those things I talked about above are all really irritating, what is being angry at myself going to achieve? Nothing, accept make me more negative and less motivated, which is the last thing I need! The thing is the only way to get back to where I was before I fell off the wagon is to do it again. If I want to change my life, feel confident and healthy its my only option. I need to take this as a lesson, to keep me motivated and stop me from quitting when it gets hard! If there is something positive you want to achieve, like I do with loosing weight the only way to get there is to do something about it. I feel like I am finally back in my Weight Watchers mind set, although exercise is something I need to work on doing more off. Diet is way more important than exercise and the fact I am eating less and tracking what I am eating, is progress to getting back to where I left off and to lose even more this time.
I want to share some of my favourite motivating and positive weight loss quotes from Tumblr with all of you. I hope this will be motivating for anyone also struggling with loosing weight like I am, and also motivating for me! Hang in there!
These are just a few of the quotes I chose, there are so many out there!
Happy Friday and stay strong,
